You can’t list rates for legal reasons.

Re: Installing Textpattern - Getting Someone to do it

You can’t list rates as a group comparison (as opposed to an individual listing their rates on their brochure or website) in the US or Canada, they consider it price fixing, which is illegal in those two countries. If you don’t happen to live there, it doesn’t apply to you, but you should be aware of this if you plan on making this site an international venture, as not all people are aware of this (so ask people’s country before allowing them to list their rates or something like that…).

@Mary
thanks for pointing that out. I was not aware that US & Canada are so strik on this. Here in Europe you find prices for design and programming sometimes on webpages though it is not a common habit.

Well, you can list your own prices, just not in conjunction with other peoples’. Crazy, I know.
