PAYMENT TERMS FOR OUR PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
Website Design Projects.
For any website project over £3000 it is standard policy for Shine Bright Media Ltd to create a custom payment plan. For website projects between £500 and £3000 Shine Bright Media Ltd charges at a 50/50 payment split with half payment paid up-front and half once a site is live! A website is considered live when the client is happy to have the website on its permanent domain name.
For any web project under £500, full payment is expected upfront.
In certain circumstances, Shine Bright Media Ltd may work to a custom payment plan for a web design project. This is entirely at the discretion of Shine Bright Media.
POINT 1 IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING 50/50 PAYMENT SPLITS.
There is often confusion as to when the second and final payment is due.
Once Shine Bright Media Ltd has produced the first draft for approval it is only fair to give the client a certain amount of time to reply with any required changes and amendments. It is at our discretion to provide a 1 week period (5 working days) for any client to decide on what, if any, changes and amendments will be required to finalise the project.
Once we have received the amendment requests from any client we always aim to produce these amendments within a 1 week period (5 working days). At this point Shine bright Media Ltd reserve the right to request final payment before continuing further work.
This is purely to stop clients using the amendment process to hold back final payment. It is fair for Shine Bright Media Ltd to expect the client to provide all required amendments in one go.
POINT 2 IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING 50/50 PAYMENT SPLITS.
In many instances, there may be a learning curve for the client to actually learn how to manage and use the websites we provide. This is especially true with eCommerce websites.
This process is entirely in the clients own time and not part of the website build or design process. The project is finished when all functionality and design is finished regardless of how long any given client takes to actually learn how to use the site.
IN THE EVENT OF A CLIENT FLATLY REFUSING TO PAY DUE TO ANY OF THE ABOVE CIRCUMSTANCES SHINE BRIGHT MEDIA LTD WILL SIMPLY PASS THE OUTSTANDING AMOUNT OVER TO A COLLECTIONS AGENCY.
We are a small family business and we produce high-quality work in a fair and honest manner. We cannot, and will not, allow clients to hold payment against us. If there is a dispute that our work is not good enough this is a different matter and will be addressed on a per-case basis.
If there is an issue with any work we provide please just talk to us. We are an extremely approachable company and keeping our relationships with our clients positive and productive is a primary focus.
Contract Products & Services
Our rolling services are charges either weekly or monthly depending on which option suits the client best.
Shine Bright Media Ltd never ties any client into a minimum contract and prefer to work to a routine that feels more relaxed to our clients.
PAYMENT TERMS FOR Ongoing Management Plans.
All ongoing plans can be set up on Weekly, Monthly or Yearly payment cycles depending on which option works best for any given client.
Weekly contracts run week-to-week starting on Mondays.
Monthly contracts run from an agreed date during any given month.
During Weekly and Monthly payment cycles, payments are always pre-paid. This is non-negotiable. Work for any given period will not commence or will be paused if payment is not made.
BREACH OF AGREEMENT FOR ROLLING PAYMENTS, LICENCES AND CONTRACT BASED SERVICES
In the event of a client breaking contract or payment agreements, any live licences or services will be terminated immediately. In many cases, this will result in a web property being disabled entirely.
This is a very last resort and something we do not take lightly. Any service or web property that has been disabled is subject to a £1400 reinstation fee per web property affected. Any web property will remain disabled until the reinstation fee is paid in full.
Once a web property is reinstated there may be further steps to be taken. If the web property in question is residing on our own servers we will then issue a 4-week removal notice. This is a fair period for the client in question to find alternative hosting. We will, of course, aid in this process.
Due to the ever-changing nature of the internet and the secrecy of the various algorithms that our marketing products rely on, Shine Bright Media very rarely offers any kind of money-back guarantee. No company can be held responsible for the inner workings of 3rd party services (such as Google).
If a refund is offered to a client it will be stated upon an official PDF invoice and sent to the client before any work commences. This is the only avenue in which we would offer a refund.
IMPORTANT : Our contract services are provided in a time-based fashion.
Payment is made weekly or monthly and is made up-front. During a contract period, Shine Bright Media never commits time beyond what the client has actually pre-paid. If a client decides to stop payment Shine Bright Media is only obliged to work until a paid period ends. If a project is not finished when the paid time period ends Shine Bright Media Ltd is NOT obliged to finish any outstanding or pre-planned projects.
IMPORTANT: In the event of a client wishing to discontinue ongoing services, Shine Bright Media ltd requires 4 weeks written notice. Failure to produce 4 weeks notice will result in an immediate termination of all services including website hosting.
IMPORTANT: All client websites built within a management contract are the property of the client. In the instance of a client cancelling a contract or agreement without the correct written notice of 4 weeks, Shine Bright Media Ltd have a standard website transfer fee of £2,500 for each web property that remains on our servers. A web-property is defined as a single website on a single domain.
We only provide hourly rate service to work on projects we have developed ourselves. Hourly rate work for all services is charged as £120 per hour. Alternatively, our custom development work can be hired for our daily rate of £350.
Niche Exclusivity for Website Design.
We never offer exclusivity for web design clients in any industry. It is unrealistic to expect such. There are even industries where we specialise and actively seek out clients within an industry.
This is especially true in our specialist areas such as “Hot Tub” and with our pre-designed packages such as our “Online Takeaway Food Order System”.
Niche Exclusivity for SEO or Marketing.
Exclusivity is only ever offered to our full management clients and only offered for the duration of the full management contract.
When exclusivity is part of a contractual agreement the client will have written documentation confirming this.
Exclusivity may be available for SEO clients at a higher premium than our standard fees. This will be agreed in writing between Shine Bright Media Ltd and the client.
