This is the scenerio: The customer fills a web form, requesting for basic information such as description of what he/she needs done, and the budget or rate per hour. This can be analyzed by testing both options and seeing A. How fast are form submited B. Which one ends up in a fee dispute.
Has anyone tested this? Or any input on this two options?
From a user perspective of a first world citizen, such as UK, USA (where a lot payment is estimate by hour)... In a site where customer communicate with propsective companies they might hire for a job, would having a estimate Rate per Hour provide a better experience for both parties (customer and company)? Or it is recommended to use the standard (or at the very least the commonly used) Budget, which is a overall cost of the project.
This is assuming the users have an idea on the timeline for the work.
Rate per hour = $20/hour
Budget = $1,000/project
