    Its depends on design, look and frame work. I usually charge $500-$2000 for a business website

    Which platform should I use? How much should I charge? Sounds like you're in a bit over your head

    If you're non-experienced about this field better to outsource it and profit, rather than profit and failed the project, you'll lose the client and opportunity. Good luck!

    i would recommend Joomla + VirtueMart for the website and payment gateway.
    First of all you need to estimate how much time it will take to get it done. Just to make an idea I usually charge ~20$ per hour.

    Only you can answer to that. If you are a PRO then charge like a PRO. You got my idea.

    Sounds like you picked a horrible first project. You need to know what you're doing before you get into a really embarrassing situation of failing to meet the expectations of your client.

    Your best option is to outsource it to someone reliable and then study the results. In the future, you should always be building mockups to save yourself time and to learn how to code more complex websites before you have to actually deliver a project.

    It depends on your experience. I'd start small, say 500, to build your portfolio and move up as you get clients.

    Depends on requirements normally around $500 but if there are many page $1000+ if the client is too demanding 1500+

    Charge them from $500 to $1000
    Also you can search Google for similar website price, you should get an idea
    Because it is hard to give you a price without known what kind of work will be done for this website
    Got it?
    Good luck:)
