    Hiya, got about 15 years Front End Development under my belt but due to personal circumstances I've never charged anything to anyone for a website.

    Lets say I build a bespoke theme for Wordpress from scratch, set up a e-commerce cart along with all the server side requirements and then sort the SEO with decent copy writing. How much should I be charging in USD, British Pound Stirling or Euros?

    Whatever you think will sell at the optimal point on the supply and demand curve. Marketing can also hype up the value considerably.

    it depends on the quality of your work and the needs of the customers but if we´re talking about just the web designing part most of the Done-For-You websites services you see here include a bit more than just web designing but over fiverr i asked there and their prices ranges from $80 to $300 i know its a very wide range of prices but as i stated before it depends.

    Depends on the client. If it's for an offline company with someone that is completely clueless you can charge higher say around $500-$1,000 but if you're doing it for someone online i'd say around $300 max.

    I see a lot of people saying 80-300. But it really depends on your skill

    I charge $700 + $100 a month to host and manage the sites.

    If you can build custom wordpress themes and have some talent, you can get this too.

    Where do you live? In germany a decent website design + coding + copywriting can get you easily in the mid 4 figure range.

    Well, I was in a meting in Austria, and the guys were asking for 35k euros for WP + woocomerce and custom deign. So if you client is stupid enough :D
    The problem mostly is, that somebody will offer your client to do it for 50$ (mostly lame on free hosting) but your client will have no idea so it really depends on the person you are talking with. Try to sell for high as possible. lets say 500$ is good amount for WP + light theme modification, some articles and some free plugins. my 2 cents

    How long would it take you to build it, how much is your time worth/how much do you want to earn per hour?

    That's a good way to start basing your prices.

    I'm sure you can buy Wordpress sites online pretty cheap but I've done SEO at web design companies that charged easily £2k-£5k for custom built Wordpress sites.

    They had proper setup and sales teams who met and pitched to clients face to face, not just Joe Bloggs working from his bedroom - appearances matter if you want to charge more.

    I made a big website for a german travel agency for 300 Euros. Some local company made them a website weeks before based on WP with default template for 2500 Euros. It looked so outdated so they decided to make another :). 2500 for this, can you believe it?:

    You can charge $300 for a mom and pop ice cream shop for a work that take less than a week. For bigger companies, start from $800 for a same amount of time spent to complete the website. I'm talking about theme based development with minor coding or none at all.

    it depends on two things if you asked me, your skill and the buyer ;) - different people get different pricings, Market Hustle 101

    $300 for a custom theme coded from scratch? You must be joking :))
