How do you charge your clients?

My prices are based off of how much time and effort I put into a design.
If I have to go back and change a bunch of things at the clients request, it'll end up being more.
But if it takes me 5 minutes and it's very simple, it will end up being less.
I don't really see a need to charge set rates per hour.

That's pretty much how I do my business too.

As others have stated, if I am to charge some one it would depend on how much effort I put in it.

So i take a kill fee on any project, even if its only 20 bucks.
I have been scammed far too much.

Because I require 50% up front, I in the end always charge a flat rate.
For big projects I estimate how long it will take and use that amount of time at $40/h for my price.
For web design I charge by the page.
And for anything small i just do set prices.

It works out in the end.
What money I sometimes lose in underestimating the final price I gain back by the fact if a project gets killed i still have the deposit.

I am contemplating switching to a day rate though since it is much much easier to keep track of, make estimates, and all that.

I haven't had many clients bail on me but I may start following the same practices you follow. The kill fee policy does make sense.

I really only accept PayPal and deal with quality clients, I never got into Bitcoin.
