    Hey guys so I want to start offering a custom bot service. I posted a thread about giving a few away for free and got a nice amount of responses. A few of those people wanted more sophisticated bots and were willing to pay. I want to start offering as a service I just don't know how much to charge people. I was seeing if you guys had maybe example of bots and how much they cost.

    You have posted in the wrong section but to answer your question.

    The most simple way is to first decide on your hourly rate and then calculate based on prior experience, so if you know generally for example coding for scraping one data field is a hours work with testing, signup form is two hours etc you can provide close estimates.

    Also agree a full detailed specification beforehand and agreed level of support after. After support needs to be factored into pricing as well.

    See if its a custom based development then anywhere around 500$-1500$ or even more. besides if you are developing a bot for several users then it should cost somewhere between $$ and a monthly charge (Sometimes not advised) too as you will have to cover the charges for updates.

    Cheers
