Terms of Services

1. Payment Terms & Process

Written Discussions are Preferred Mode & channel of Communication. Client is required to send the full requirements along with the designs/mockups to quote. Our PM will look up the task and come up with the questions until scope is agreed and 100% understood. Once done, quote will be announced.

When we quote fix price, we quote for the very specific scope agreed only. Each Content, Layout or functionality update deviating from that scope is charged at an hourly rate agreed.

After approval of quote, we accept 50%-100% advance payment depending on the scope of work before commencement of the project while remaining payment (If any) at the project completion upon project approval on showing at our staging server. Next stage is transferring the work to live Site.

Our services are white labeled especially helping web agencies and freelancers. That would mean our staging URL won’t have our identity shown and will be a White Labeled URL IP so you can feel free to show progress if working for your clients.

We tend to work on our own internal staging server. If insisted by client, we can work on client’s staging server, provided there won’t be any interference by any other developer or party during the course of work done. In case an issue is arised on client staging server, Savvy programmers won’t be liable for that by any mean. All work on live sites (without usage of our staging server) is done on prepaid basis i.e. 100% advance payment of the scope.

We accept Credit Cards, PayPal, and Debit Cards. For US clients, we also offer facility to make payment via Wire Transfer.

We request our clients to come up with any Constructive Feedback regarding work completed within 3 days of project completion (i.e. showing at our staging) or after a project is shown. If no feedback is received within given time-frame, project will be considered as approved and marked completed.

Client is required to make Payment within one week of completing the project (i.e. showing at our staging). In case of failure to complete the payment in the given time-frame, case will be forwarded to the finance and recovery team of Savvy programmers to proceed with necessary actions.

2. Deployment on Client server

Deployment on client server upto one hour of work will be free. If client server has issues or not upto to mark to host websites, client will itself fix the hosting issues with hosting provider. If our help is required to deal with hosting company, any time during the discussion or fixing the server issues with the hosting provider will be charged if exceeded one hour as per hourly rate. As we’re solely responsible for the development and providing Deployment service as a compliment, we’re not responsible for any hosting side issues like DNS or permissions. Savvy programmers may opt to send raw files in ZIP folder so client can upload on server.

3. Working on Pre-made Themes

Client is required to contact the theme developer to fix the issues. If requested, Savvy programmers can fix the issues and charge for the fixes or updates. If Savvy programmers proposes a theme and client approves, which results into problems later due to bad code, Savvy programmers won’t be liable as quoted above.
