How much to charge for a basic Magento theme
I'm very new to Magento but have familiarised myself with how to setup a basic store and create new Magento themes (or modify the default one anyway!).
I get a lot of freelance work from local web design companies, and am looking to get ecommerce work off them.
I have no idea how much to charge for a basic ecommerce website however.
I've always heard people saying that ecommerce website are very complex and involve a great deal of work compared to building your average CMS website (or Wordpress theme for example).
To me, it doesn't look as though there would be that much work involved. Well, obviously it would depend on how big the shop / website was.
Let's just say you were given a brief to setup a Magento shop. You had to customise the default Magento theme to fit the design you were given.
You didn't have to bother with tax rules, and were using PayPal website payments standard.
All products in the store were to be classed as 'Simple Products' (let's say there were 200 products in there store, under 5 categories).
I shouldn't imagine many ecommerce projects would be as straightforward as this, but it's just to give me an idea. How much would you charge for something like that?
Even if you just give me a rough estimate that would help to give me some guidance, as I know that there could be many other aspects that would affect the price. And I understand that everybody's prices are different.

I would say $50 - $100 for a single-site license if you are doing mass sales. However, if you do freelance theme development / site set-up for Magento sites, considering the complexity, I'd charge anywhere between $1000 - $3000, not including the design.
It's very true that eCommerce sites are a lot more sophisticated than the average CMS ones such as wordpress. Magento Go seems to be a simple eCommerce SaaS solution with great functionality, but wait until you read my review.
