I've been asked to build a site based on this one - mobilefun.co.uk (http://mobilefun.co.uk), lets say it will have the same amount of categories and content pages as this one.

The platform my client wants it built on is a datafeed script so adding the products won't take 5 mins, same with categories, probably take about 15 mins per

The design is on a template system so I think that would take me 2 or 3 days.

Based on that what would you charge someone to build this site? I fairly desperate for the money at the moment, but don't want to give my services away but also I don't want to scare the client away with and ask for too much :)

I've been coding for about 2 years but not really for other people, just been building my own stuff and sometimes selling it.

Depends really. I charge on how long I estimate it'll take us to do it, then have to cover wages, rent, gas, elec, etc etc. So my estimate will be nowhere near what you'd charge. Without knowing all the details, I'd say 700+

It depends on the number of pages, if you're using a ready made script then it's easier.

I'd say somewhere around $700 - $1000 mark.

A fully built from scratch CMS? Closer to $1,500 - $2,000.
Working with a pre-made template CMS, around $900 - $1,000.

about 1000$ generally speaking, If you need noting especially.
