There are no hidden gotchas or unexplained costs. All payments to Melon Development are done via invoice that outlines each detail and service for your project. If you have a question about a charge or want to add an extra service, it's as easy as just asking.
Accepted Payment Methods
Credit Card and ACH Payments are processed by QuickBooks. Melon Development never sees your payment details or banking information.
We work with clients of all sizes and can adjust our services to meet most budgets, to do this, we offer a handful of pricing options that can meet almost anyone's needs.
50/50 is our most popular option and it's available for almost all of our services. With 50/50, you pay for half the project estimate up front to add your project to our work queue. Then once your project is completed you pay the remaining half.
Pricing is simple and straightforward. There are no additional fees unless significant changes or adjustments are requested for your project.
Development at your Pace
Milestone pricing is very similar to our 50/50 agreement. Under Milestone, we divide up your project into manageable sub-goals that are split up throughout the development cycle. With milestone payments, we only work up to your budget, so there are no unexpected due dates, invoices, or additional costs.
Due to the nature of the Milestone option, we cannot guarantee final project deadlines as each section of your project is considered its own order, and added to our queue as payments are made.
No upfront costs.
With Revenue Share, we are choosing to take a risk on your idea in exchange for making back our costs when your project goes to production. Revenue Share projects have the highest priority among our projects and can be applied to any development project or build.
Revenue share rates vary from project to project, so it's important to contact us if you're interested.
The revenue share option is only available to Melon Development Partners and availability is subject to our approval based on your project concept and monetization plan. We reserve the right to not offer Revenue Share to any client for any reason. Learn more about being a partner...
At Melon Development, we believe in Fair Billing. We'll never charge you for work on your project that didn't happen, even if we quote you for it.
For example, if we quote your development work to be $150, but the developer finishes it faster then the expected time, your final invoice will be much cheaper then the quote. In the event of an unmet delivery timeline, we'll reimburse your account either fully or partially depending on the project.
We meet deadlines for your projects, and we expect the same from our clients for payments. In the event that your invoice goes overdue, a late fee will be assessed for each day your payment is late.
- When an invoice goes overdue, a fee of 20% of your invoice balance will be incurred due to the late payment. This is a one-time fee that is only assessed on the first day.
- For each day an invoice is overdue, an additional fee of 5% of your invoice balance will be incurred.
We want to work with you. If the due date given to you at the time an invoice is sent doesn't work for you, please let us know. We also accept partial payments toward open invoices, as well.
Declined Payments & Chargebacks
If your payment for an invoice fails to clear, or a dispute is made against a completed payment, you become liable for all costs we incur in re-acquiring your payment. In the event of a declined payment, a Declined Payment Fee will be assessed to your invoice for 10% of your invoice balance (no less than $10USD). In the event of a chargeback, a Chargeback Handling Fee will be assessed to your invoice for 20% of your invoice balance (no less than $20USD).
In the event that a declined payment or chargeback is resolved in our favor, we will reimburse you for the extra fees as account credit to be used toward your next order upon full repayment of the invoice in question.
