How much do you charge your uncle for painting his basement? How much do you pay your close friend for building a website?
These are tricky questions. Nobody likes to negotiate with people they know. There is no standard friends and family etiquette to follow so you're both uncertain and neither of you want to be seen as rude by proposing an unfair price. You don't want to ruin your relationship by asking for too much nor feel unfairly compensated if they give too little.
The Price-a-Favor Calculator™ solves that problem by telling you the Fair Friends and Family Price™!
How it works
Both of you tell us a little about the job and the calculator tells you the Fair Friends and Family Price.
- You provide details of the favor.
- You send the payer a link to answer similar questions.
- The calculator emails you both the Fair Friends and Family Price.
Example: Avery prints a picture for her cousin Xander
Avery is a professional photographer who sells prints online. Xander saw a picture he liked and asked for a framed copy at a special price as a favor. Avery doesn't want to charge him full price but doesn't want to give it away either. At the very least she wants to cover the cost of printing the photo and the frame.
Avery fills out the Price-a-Favor giver questionnaire
- What do you think is a reasonable amount to be paid for this favor? $150
- How much would you charge a non-friend/family customer for the same service? $450
- What did you pay out of pocket for things like materials, shipping, tax, etc? $100
Xander receives and fills out the Price-a-Favor payer questionnaire
- What do you think is a reasonable amount to pay for this favor? $200
- How much would you expect to pay a non-friend/family for the same service? $400
The Price-a-Favor calculator sends Avery and Xander an email with the calculated Friends and Family Favor Price of $180.
Xander gives Avery $180 for the framed picture. Everyone is happy!
