    Not at all, you are offering to them your time, your knowledge, your service.
    Something that they couldn't do by themselves. For all of this you put a price tag.
    This is called business not cheating.

    Is it considered cheating if I purchase product x at value x and resell it to a consumer for y when they could just buy the same product for x like i did?

    As long as you provide the service that is purchased and the client is happy it does not matter how you got there.

    I read an article by a web designer, who said that wordpress is considered cheating. That's why I posted a thread on BHW a reliable so source.

    If you would sell it to your clients as a 100% custom designed site then yes you are cheating!

    I use Wordpress myself, and I know a lot of other web designers that do as well. Nothing wrong with using a good tool to get the job done...

    It is not completely "cheating", but IMHO you can not call you as a "web design freelancer". That doesn't match with ethics.

    You seem like a pretty knowledgeable individual - since I have read some of your other posts - Buying products or services for one price and selling them to make a profit has been going on for thousands of years - but you already know that! - so why is the point of your post?

    No it's not, but this work has to be paid off very little.

    It's cheating if he claims that he built the website when he just designed it.
