Credits List and How They Work

To ensure that your website is built with efficiency and the whole process is fair for both Modern Web Studios and You, we’ve implemented a credit system. You will receive an initial 20 credits for your website. This is in addition to the initial build that will have already included everything that’s in your website agreement. The purpose of the credit system is to limit the number of revisions and time we spend on the design and adjustments of your website. As you can probably imagine if we do not limit this, some customers will make changes on top of changes on top of changes and there will be no end to the work. However, this also means your website will never be launched! If you run out of credits, you’ve reached the completion of your website and will need to request a quote for the additional work. We encourage you to plan out your website so that you utilize your pre-allocated credits on the most important aspects of your website. And maybe reserve the additional revisions for yourself once you learn how easy and fun it can be to edit your own website with our support and easy to follow video tutorials.

Note: You can click on a row and it will highlight it so you can choose what you’re looking for. Click it again to remove it.
