Pricing and Commitment
By signing up for our “Explode It” Express Websites package, you are agreeing to a 12-month commitment of $550 per month, to be billed automatically from your debit/credit card on file. Your plan subscription will start on the date of sign up, and will be billed on that same date throughout your term.
Your Agreement to Pay
You agree to pay your monthly package subscription of $550 on the due date by automatic debit/draft for 12 months. Express Websites will charge a late payment fee of 5% per month on any overdue and unpaid balance not in dispute, to cover the manpower, interest, and other costs Express Websites pays for carrying overdue invoices. In addition, Express Websites reserves the right to stop work until payment is received.
In the event that we incur legal fees, costs and disbursements in an effort to collect our invoices, in addition to interest on the unpaid balance, you agree to reimburse us for these expenses.
Cancellation of Term
By signing this agreement, you agree to the terms of this contract for the next 12 months. At the contract term, you have the option to renew or change your package 30 days before the end date of your term or your package will renew for another 3 months. If you’re interested in canceling your plan with us, please notify us as soon as possible. You must pay the remaining months of the contract term in order to transfer the business website to another provider. You are responsible for any additional costs associated with transitioning your project from Express Websites, including our staff hours used to support that effort.
You are responsible for any costs associated with third-party services not outlined in this agreement. An example of a third-party service could be a website software tool you may request that requires an ongoing subscription cost.
You will be provided a link to browse website templates. You may choose whichever template desired, and our team can customize that template’s colors, fonts, images, copy, and more to match the business branding. Our team may help by sending some of our recommended templates based on your brand. You must provide desired copy and photos, or our team will utilize stock imagery where needed. Custom CSS and hand-coded customizations are not part of this plan.
Photos and Video
You’ll need to supply graphic files to us in an editable, vector digital format. Photographs must be in a high-resolution digital format. If you don’t currently have a logo or photos to use on your website, our team can supply royalty free stock images for the website. Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure that any images/videos you provide are free of any copyright infringement. We do not hold any responsibility regarding any copyright infringement from images/videos you supply to our team.
Browser testing no longer means attempting to make a website look the same in browsers of different capabilities or on devices with different size screens. It does mean ensuring that a person’s experience of a design should be appropriate to the capabilities of a browser or device. We will ensure that your website is fully responsive on browsers and devices of various sizes.
Changes and Revisions
You have the opportunity to change your template 1 time before launch if you don’t like the originally chosen template. If you want to change the template a 2nd time, you may do so at an additional fee of $350.
We can’t guarantee that our work will be error-free (we’re human!) so we can’t be liable to you or any third-party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if you’ve advised us of them. It is highly recommended and encouraged that you or someone on your team assist us in the review and testing of your website, providing detailed feedback and suggestions to our team for revisions.
We agree to use our best efforts to fulfill and exceed your expectations on the deliverables listed above. You agree to aid us in doing so by making available to us needed information pertaining to your website, domain registrar, Google Analytics accounts, feedback on content or designs, and to cooperate with us in expediting the work. We are not responsible for launch delays related to delayed feedback/cooperation from you.
Unsupported Business Types
We do not offer our services to certain businesses that violate our personal brand standards, or that carry with them many legal restrictions. The brands that may not subscribe to Express Websites include:
- Pornographic, lewd, sexually explicit, or adult-only content brands
- Tobacco sellers
- Alcohol sellers trying to sell online (we can assist alcohol-related brands that aren’t selling online)
- Hemp/CBD Pharmaceuticals
Anyone who signs up with Express Websites as one of these unsupported business types will be immediately refunded and your plan will be canceled.
eCommerce Stores and Blogs/Magazine Brands
Please note that the Express Websites plan is designed for small businesses and startup brands looking to build their online presence quickly and affordably. While we can set up your eCommerce template, blog/magazine template, please note that this plan does not include any third-party integrations such as WooCommerce. It also does not include content migration for existing blogs/magazines.
Once your website is set up, you will be responsible for setting up WooCommerce or similar eCommerce service, as well as adding products. If you are a blog/magazine brand, you will be responsible for adding your own blogs/articles to your website.
If you need assistance with the above items, please contact Wide Open Technologies for additional services.
Express Websites strives to provide the speedy setup of your website. Our team works hard to get your website set up and launched within the first month of signing up. Keep in mind that the timely launch of your website is dependent upon your feedback throughout the process. We cannot guarantee launch deadlines if your cooperation/feedback is delayed.
