Client: I’d like you to create an app, with the following features… My budget is 800 €.
Me: Unfortunately my estimate for all of these features is radically different, about 10 000 €. Please note this offer contains exclusive non-transferable license, which means I can’t resell the app to anyone else, but you can’t either. Is this all okay with you?
Client: This is ridiculous. I would never agree to such a price. I am the client and I set the terms. I even gave this job to a high school student who was able to do more work than you’re offering for less money, but they refused to send over the finished app. Also, another developer took the deposit and disappeared. Now I’m suing them both.
I’m the client, I set the contract terms. Of course the app is going to be mine so I can resell to whoever I want.
Me: It seems you’re looking for someone else. I wish you best of luck with the app.
Prospect: No, it seems you just want to get 100 000 € [note: this is ten times what I said] for a job that a high school student was able to do in a few days. I wish you the best of luck in looking for someone who would just pay you without any work.
