    Question PHP Programming Pay?

    I'm sorry if this is not in the correct forum.

    I was wondering what kind of pay would you expect for creating a non-object oriented PHP script, which would require approximately one hours work.

    $50 or so if it's done well.

    I believe that legitimate PHP coders can earn anywhere from $50 to $125 per hour, depending on their experience and level of work needed.

    $50-100 is a good estimate, also depends on your php knowledge. I would personally not pay a beginner $50 for an hours work, while an advanced/professional coder who knows what they're doing and gets on with it would probably achieve alot more in the hour.

    Show me where PHP coders can earn anything close to $125 an hour and I'll show you a happy man.

    Sadly PHP coders are well at bottom of the pay ladder. I think $50 per hour is very good for PHP work.

    i just did about 10 hours of php work for $250. took me about two days after my real job. And i threw in a 3 month service plan if anything goes wrong / "its exactly what i asked for but not what i wanted" stuff comes up.

    ^^ That's a good philosophy because at least you're more likely to get return business.

    It depends a lot on the experience, time frame, and amount of time required. $50 for a one-hour contract is quite reasonable.

    I get these people telling me they'll pay me $5 for a script that will take 5+ hours to complete. That's less than $1/hour for my 4 years php experience.

    I just blow them off and tell them I have more important projects to take care of.

    It really depends on the person doing the work, and how good they are. If it is only something that takes an hour or less, I'd charge around $20, but that's just me.

    The answer to your question is in direct relationship to the developer's location. The world is big, and the payment range will vary significantly.

    So how much would you pay a Zend Certified Engineer per hour then?!

    It depends on so many factors. For me, because I'm a nice guy (and hence I'll never be wealthy ) it would be around $18USD, but then i live in New Zealand which means I get by on less. For somebody living in the states, you wouldn't get less than $40 I expect, but for somebody living in India or within the former soviet block you wouldn't get MORE than $18.

    Completely depends on the circumstances, the programmer, the amount you get done in that hour, etc etc etc.
