I will assume those prices are per month and personally i would charge more because you give quite a lot of diskspace, or cut the amount of space you give, most clients dont really use a great deal of webspace, id say only 2 or 3 of my customers use over 200mb space and thats what you are offering in your basic plan.

The question I would ask:

Is it worth it to you?

The packages are quite cheap for the resources your offering, are you going to make money from it? especially if you attract customers who are likely to take up much of your time in support questions.

There are many other questions to be asked in relation to your "is it worth it".

If your comfortable that you can profit while providing a stable environment for your customers then I see no reason why your prices are not fine.

I'd knock the space provided down a notch. You could even get away with halfing it.

2.50 a month is a plan I wouldnt bother with... you lose most of that from credit card fees. If a client then emails you a few times a month you are using a lot of time for very little profit.

Your site in your sig has a plan at 32/yr, which works out at only a little more than 2.50 a month

Yes, but that is a payment upfront for a year. It costs 50-100p for a credit card transaction, so losing that from 32 is ok, but if you lose that each time from a 2.50 transaction then you half the amount of money you take in.

Ahhh I get you. I assumed it was a percentage, ie, 4.5% of the transaction.

Depends on the service provider you choose. In my <I>very</I> limited experience most seem to charge <small fixed amount> + <percentage> - much like PayPal do.

Yeah, that's a huge amount of web space, maybe get more bandwidth per month so you can match the bandwidth with your large storage, then raise the prices.

Thread moved to other reviews - that forum is more suitable for plan reviews.

Either that or drop the disk space a little and keep your current prices.
