    hey guys,

    One of my friends just referred me to his friend and he's asking me to quote a price for an ecommerce site for women's clothing. Is it possible to quote him a ballpark figure? I've seen e-shop scripts somewhere before and I think I have it somewhere. This guy has no knowledge about web site and shit as well. And so I doubt he has a domain but that's not any issues.

    Any tips would be nice! :D

    Thanks,
    DM

    same the cubecart can do similar job ... there's not a problem about what script you are using for it , ideea is to '' milk the cow '' you know what I mean , check first how much money the guy have and how much he can afford to pay , make your math and see if you have something to win from this , it's not worth to bother to setup and to do everything for a total noobie with not properly revenue ... :) , I was on your shoes before and I got like 1200 withing 2 days :) just pure profit ! , ofcourse I billed the guy even for the free theme :)

    I always charge a flat $1000 and it should not take you that long....I posted CRE Loaded you should check it out. I also got a few templates on there that might help you out
