Terms of service
Clients agree to pay in full for all work designed and/or produced by Unix Commerce Web Design for which they have placed an order.
Unix Commerce Web Design requires 50% of the total order to be paid in advance, in the form of one of the following: credit card, checks, money orders, or cashiers check, before work is started on design project. This deposit is non refundable once work has begun.
The remaining 50% balance must be paid in full after completion of the design(s) and approval* of the design(s), before site goes live. When ordered, search Engine Promotion and the submission of the Web Design Project to Web search engines occurs only after the full final payment is made. All payments will be made in U.S. Dollars.
*Unix Commerce Web Design does everything possible to make sure Client is 100% satisfied with each design and will make ‘reasonable’ changes accordingly to the first design shown to client, to the final. Near or upon completion of Client’s ordered design(s), opportunity will be given to view all or portion of design(s) for adjustment, corrections and/or approval. In Unix Commerce Web Design’s attempt to transfer clients’ visions into real and functional designs, sometimes minor rework or adjustments of completed work is required, and Unix Commerce Web Design will certainly give Client opportunity for review and/or approval as indicated above, however it is not within ‘reason’ to request an indefinite amount of changes, and therefore Unix Commerce Web Design will not rework a design an unreasonable amount of times over for the price of doing it once. AFTER FINAL APPROVAL, PAYMENT AND DELIVERY OF COMPLETED PROJECT the order is considered done and any new requests are considered new project orders.

The final web site design project will be published to the Client’s hosting service upon receipt of final payment. Hosting services require a separate contract with the hosting service of the Client’s choice, whether us or another provider.
