payment policies


All quotations submitted by Fiate Lux in terms of the client’s project specifications, will remain valid for acceptance for a period of 30 days from the date of the quote. Should this quote not be accepted within the 30 day period or no written request for any alteration or extension be received from the client, the quote will expire.

All quotations are submitted on the condition that the content, text, images and relevant information necessary to design the website will be supplied by the client to Fiate Lux unless otherwise agreed upon. Any additional Images, info graphics or illustrations that cannot be sourced within Fiate Lux’s resources or online stock Libraries, will need to be purchased by the client directly.

Fiate Lux will accept a request to amend a quote if the request is given prior to the expiry date of the original quote.

All quotations are prepared taking into account the specific technical requirements of each project  and, as such, we reserve the right to amend any quote should the project’s specifications change, or if it becomes clear that the project specifications which were originally communicated were not originally provided in a clear and correct manner by the client at the time of requesting a quote.

Should a client not be able to provide a detailed project specification for the work to be done, Fiate Lux reserves the right to quote and to bill for their initial research and planning needed to outline the exact specifications and technical requirements necessary to complete the project. Such research and planning shall be billed according to our standard hourly rate.

The client will receive a quote via email that will take them to a link where they can accept or decline the quote digitally within the 30 day period the quote is active for. No project will commence until a formal acceptance is received and agreed upon. By signing and accepting the aforesaid quote you agree to all the Terms and Conditions set out by Fiate Lux.

Deposit and confirmation of order

On formally accepting a quote issued by Fiate Lux, the client shall be responsible for the payment of a 50% deposit of the total amount quoted.

No project will commence until the 50% deposit has been paid into our account and the funds are reflected as clear by ABSA bank. In the event that a client causes a delay in the commencement of the project by failing to make the appropriate 50% deposit payment, Fiate Lux shall not be held responsible for an increase in the quotation due to loss of other project opportunities and should the project deadlines not be met.

Website Development

Each phase of the project, as specified in the quotation, will require a formal written acknowledgement of completion and acceptance. Fiate Lux will not proceed with the next phase of the project without receiving the written approval from the client that the previous phase had been received by the client and the client is happy. Fiate Lux reserves the right to place the project on hold until such approval is given, and accepts no responsibility should a deadline of the project not be met due to the failure by the client to approve the previous phase in a timely manner.

Phase 1

Conceptualising and designing a look and feel based on the client’s brief. This process involves revisions with the client until final sign-off.

Phase 2

Web Development of the site based on signed-off material in phase 1. Small tweaks and revisions are catered for during the build phase. Once the built site has been approved, it will be optimised for tablet and mobile devices.

Phase 3

Sign-off on entire site on a testing server after which the site will be migrated to the client’s hosting servers. All access needs to be shared with Fiate Lux to enable a seamless migration.

It is at this point that the remaining 50% payment and any other outstanding monies billed for is required before the site will be made ‘live’.

Alterations and additions may be requested at any time during a phase of the development of a project and Fiate Lux will determine whether or not such request falls within the scope of the original project brief, specifications and quotation. In the event that the request does not fall within the original brief and specifications, Fiate Lux reserves the right to quote and bill for such alterations and additions separately to the original amount quoted. In this event, we will require written approval from the client before any work commences.

It is also the sole responsibility of the client to provide a project brief, and/or specifications in a detailed, accurate and concise document and Fiate Lux accepts no responsibility for any misunderstanding arising out of a poorly drafted specification document. Fiate Lux reserves the right to charge additional fees for any extra development time incurred as a result of an unclear project brief. Fiate Lux will always endeavour to communicate any points of concern to clarify the brief document to the client to minimise any misunderstandings, but the responsibility still falls on  the client to be clear and concise.

If a project has been left dormant for longer than 1 Month (30 days), Fiate Lux reserves the right to adjust the original cost of the project according to the current hourly rates.

Project deposits are non refundable based on the following:

  • Fiate Lux has started the strategy, menu structure, project documentation or design
  • Client has not been giving input or feedback on the project deliverable or has placed the project on-hold for longer than an agreed time.
Graphic Design and Printing

Any graphic design and/or printing will only commence once full payment has been received. We do not offer printing services, however this can be outsourced at a handling fee of 20% or alternatively handled directly by the Client.
