This page is a guideline, a way to get an estimate of what your calculator
might cost. Actual cost will be determined by the amount of time our
technicians will have to devote to your particular project. If you have a
working spreadsheet (Excel or Open Office) that you want to have made into an
online calculator, then the cost will be considerably less than if you want
us to create all of the math and code here at OmegaCalc.
The first thing to know is that the calculator will itself, be a complete
webpage on it's own. It will be an html file with (most likely) java
scripting for the calculator functions. The reason we mention this on the
pricing page, is that we can either build any text like explanations,
descriptions and instructions into the calculator html, or you can create
that yourself on a separate page and link to the calculator, or have the
calculator in a frame on an html page. This means that you can save a small
amount of costs by not having us include such text on the calculator page we
create for you. However, since this is six cents per word, not a lot can be
saved, we just thought we'd mention it.
Our definition of a word for this purpose, is any character or group of
characters, separated from other characters or groups of characters by blank
spaces. Example: " 1 r @ B " is four words, while " 1r@B
" is one word. As an html page, you can edit it if you choose, but be
aware that you can damage the page if you do not know what you are doing, and
we cannot be responsible for that. Always make a backup copy if you want to
try editing your calculator.
Adding graphics, complicated color schemes etc., will add time and
therefore project costs. As a rule of thumb though, a calculator can usually
be made for about $50 plus 6¢ for each word of text plus $5 per calculated
answer (output) and $2 per input ($2.50 and $1 with customer provided
You will note that there is a logo in the lower right of this page. That
will come on your custom calculator as well. If you do not want it, then the
price is and additional $20. In other words, we are giving you a $20 discount
for advertising our product.
If your were to have us make this exact page for you, it would probably
cost between $90 and $135. You can use the calculator below to get an
estimate* of your calculator's cost.
* This estimate assumes
that we make a functional calculator, with basic style matching to your existing
website. If you require extra effort customization, a lot of tweaking, or
changes not mentioned in our initial dialogues, prices will go up. Our pricing
is based on our estimate of how much labor will be involved in creating your
calculator. If we need to spend more time with you, getting your calculator
'just so', then of course we will have to adjust the cost to reflect the extra
effort we will be putting in the the development of the calculator.
