Online Encoding Price GuideThe table below gives some examples of prices for encoded jobs. Pricing is based on the total amount of code generated for all files encoded, and
there is no charge per file!. Charging is only based on the actual code, and
pure HTML typically costs virtually nothing. Encoding an archive of 20
HTML files might cost the same or less than one more complicated PHP file.
- Encoding jobs are priced in credits. Each credit is $0.10 each.
- Cost is based on compiled code size, not script size. i.e. PHP complexity rather than size.
- Only the first download attempt of an encoded file consumes credits so you can't be "double charged".
- 50 free credits are added to each block of 250 credits bought together. e.g. 300 credits for the price of $25.00.
- Minimum order of credits just $5 (50 credits).
The table below shows encodings for some large archives and a few web sites.
The dollar cost assumes
an account starting with no credits. The table includes the source code
size as a very rough guide, but remember, cost is based on compiled code
size and not source. Comments, white-space, expansive code layout etc. cost nothing.
Encoding web sites is particularly cost effective
because of their low complexity relative to the other examples.
To get a price for your own project, just upload to the online Encoder either as a test or pay-to-download encoding and the price will be given
