It is not necessary for any Client to have signed an acceptance of these terms and conditions for them to apply. If a Client accepts a quote, then the Client will be deemed to have satisfied themselves as to the terms applying and have accepted these terms and conditions in full.
Please read these terms and conditions carefully. Any purchase or use of our services implies that you have read and accepted our terms and conditions.
Charges for services to be provided by ElixirBizz Digital Solutions are defined in the project quotation that the Client receives via e-mail. Quotations are valid for a period of fourteen (14) days. ElixirBizz Digital Solutions reserves the right to alter or decline to provide a quotation after 14 days. Prices quoted are only an estimate, and may be subject to change during the process of design and build. This can be caused by the client choosing to amend any aspect of their requirements or any third party costs which occur beyond ElixirBizz’s control.
Any charges incurred by international payments or international bank transfers are not the responsibility of ElixirBizz Digital Solutions. Therefore, any such charges must be paid, by the client, in addition to the amounts invoiced by ElixirBizz Digital Solutions. Consequently, ElixirBizz does not accept ‘shared charges’ for international bank transfers or international payments.
Payment of Accounts
Unless agreed otherwise with the Client, for projects under INR 1,00,000 full payment is required before work begins on the project.
For all projects over INR 1,00,000, payment is required in three stages:
- An advance payment of a minimum of Sixty (60) percent of the project quotation total is required when the initial quote is agreed upon and before the project commences. Payment for third-party software and services, such as: web hosting and domain names may also be required in full at this stage.
- A further twenty (20) percent is required after the client reviews the initial release or first version of the project on a test server or other suitable environment, and before any amendments are made.
- The remaining twenty (20) percent of the project quotation total is required upon completion of the work, prior to upload to the server, release of materials or ‘launch’ of the website. The project is deemed completed once all the components in the project scope are completed.
Any additions or amendments outside of the project scope, which are required by the client may result in additional costs and change in the timeframe of the project.
Any delays to the estimated project timeframe which are caused by the client, will not extend the deadline of the payment of the remaining balance. Any delays to project completion which are caused by the client, will not extend the deadline of the payment of the remaining balance.
