Sorry, when I first posted my eye was killing me and about 5 in the morning.
Just re-read your post and your offering a service.
"and that was the hour my contacts were at lenscrafters
I had a web store set up by logansryche today and it was a
service indeed. Now I need to populate it with inventory.
Edit: Days after I changed all
the passwords he says he spent 7 hours on the web site, even though ZERO changes were made and the whole site, he says I owe him 7 hours worth of work! I paid UP FRONT and he says my payment was pre-contract and the payment was merely a gift and "doesn't count" towards the final bill. He said it would be approximately 2 hours worth of work, @ 0.21 BTC per hour, so I paid him 0.4 BTC in advance, and within 2 hours the site (which is a free service btw, you can download a 'carts for coins' here
for free and upload it yourself without paying anyone) was completed and I was impressed.
Instead of giving him the password and then going to bed, I made sure I sent him the password as soon as he messaged me back so I knew he only had the password at a time when I knew he was at the computer. I gave him the password at around 9:45PM on the 28th, and at 12:23AM on the 29th (few hours later) he said "ok.. got all of the sorterd out... before i forget, did you want it to point to the cart when you go to impossibledecals.com or when you go to the site and click on store."
I told him the whole thing looks great. He says, "thank you, thank you.. i'll setcha up with a pdf of where and how to add inventory. it's quite simple."
I mean, I had already paid for the work in advance, and he said thanks.. I left him a trader feedback point on my site and said he should leave me one too, he left one saying "pleasure to work with."
Isn't this end of story? I came on his thread here on bitcoin forum and left a "wow great service!" comment...
He tells me "I contacted the creator of the bitcoin module to see what's going on with it, because that's just rediculas >.< Also, go look at the site in the meantime and see if everything's the way you want it and let me know if there's anything you want changed. In the meantime, this is where I get off. G'night."
Because there was a problem with the bitcoin module, the module that he uses on his own site, and I suppose the "coins" part of the "carts for coins." Note the text "let me know if there's anything you want changed." and at this point, all the passwords have long been changed.
He tells me now I have to pay HIM an hourly rate for him to rewrite
the "carts for coins" plugin because it doesn't work. The original offering, "carts for coins," is broken and he wants me to pay him for his time trying to fix it. Then he tells me my .4 BTC was not anything more than a gift. A token of appreciation. "you paid me .4 to start that was out of contract and wasn't discussed before hand. It cannot be counted."
and then I asked for clarification... "Well it was gaven without discussing it or it being included in the contract.
I can't clearly say it was part of the overall payment."
That's sort of like someone selling you a car that runs on magical fuel. And then you pay in advance for the car at the quoted estimate, and then you get the keys and it doesn't work on magical fuel, it runs on regular gas. But you have to pay a chemist research and development to get the magical fuel working, but of course the end-user will pay for that, and his car payments went towards buying coffee while he works on the magical recipe. And as soon as he gets the recipe working, he's going to use it in his own car and all additional cars that he builds. But the end user of the 1st car sold has to pay for the recipe.
I have absolutely no problem paying someone to do work for me. Hell, even if he came to me and said I owed him an extra .1 or something because he went a little overboard, but the web site was completed in the time allowed and he wants me to pay him an additional 1.5 BTC because my .4 was a gift and he spent 7 hours working on the site which he had no access to AND if I pay him the 1.5 BTC, the site doesn't even work with bitcoin like we said originally. And can I add, that while he was waiting for the software to be loaded on my server, he had time to bust out photoshop and made a banner for me for some reason.
I'd love to see some comments on your opinions. I hope this is not too biased but seriously, this dude is trying to hustle me outta money and he thinks that I give a rats ass. "let me know if you want any changes made" becomes "you owe me for 7 hours labor."
