Which price suits me best?

Does Goldtree accept "C.O.D."?

We no longer accept Cash On Delivery terms, due to the nature of the design process. Instead we now require a standard charge to be levied on hiring our services. The low budget solutions are contract-free so you will NOT be obliged to pay if you are unsatified. Should the work have passed the 75% completion mark, refunds will be calculated at the cost per hour for work done.

What payment methods are best?

The best way to pay for our services is to use cash deposits or EFT if your bank has the facility. If you wish to request our banking details for making payments, please contact our Billing Department at billing@goldtree.co.za.

Web Design Price Structure

Web design price is a very simple science. The cost of a website is directly linked to:

  • The raw hours of coding that will go into the project.
  • The number of coders that will be assigned to the project.
  • The nature of the project - 'Is it a database driven solution?' or 'Is it a simple portfolio?'
  • Client initiated requests, ie, a Flash-based intro, extra maintenence.
  • Third Party software that may need to be purchased, eg, off-the-shelf CMS's.
  • Expected & highly accurately predicted future costs and their estimated handlings in deploying the project.

As you can see, the pricing is one hundred percent dependant on the nature of the project itself and rarely has anything to do with the financial worth of the company that has requested that Goldtree Web Designer draw up an online solution for them. We believe in ethical dealings and that is one of the grandest reasons why we sleep very well every night!

Also, our costing process gets accredted by our very experienced and impartial partners before approval of any project and that means accountabilty is spread hence minimising the occurance of over-pricing that can occur for any web application that we develop.

Web Design Prices in Durban, and South Africa

The prices of web design in Durban here in South Africa are one of the lowest in the world. The analysis that we at Goldtree carried out shows a trend that can be summed up this way:

   1. In Gauteng Province, Johannesburg and Pretoria are the highest pricings with some companies starting at a minimal R25 000 per website.

   2. Cape Town comes in after with some Web Designers charging a minimal R18 000 for just a single job.

   3. At the bottom end came in Durban and Port Elizabeth web designers each with minimum charges for Web Designs that bordered between R6000 to R10000.

The anomaly in pricing comes with the economic territory as well skills territory. Johannesburg has the highest GDP in South Africa and that in turn dictates that it should command higher rates than anywere else locally. Cape Town also follows in that same regard. Durban and Port Elizabeth have much lower GDP's than Cape Town and Jo'burg PLUS the cost of living in Durban is also ver low in comparison. The lowering of cost of living PLUS the fact that it is a holiday resort city, means there is a general ""Life Is Good" feeling dominating the KwaZulu Natal capital. This in turn means that the average Durban Web Designer is not overwhemingly hungry and will therefore means a drastic reduction in service costs in comparison with other cities.
