Payments and fees
Warm Media requires a 50% deposit before we begin work on any project. (Flex-Pay installment payments may be accepted only if agreed to in writing per the original invoice.) During the design and development process, additional charges may be added if the client requests more work than was originally requested. The remaining project balance is due upon completion of the project. All projects that are $400 or less may be subject to required full payment up front.
Flex-Pay Payment Option
At Warm Media, we understand cash flow is important to your business. That’s why we’ve developed Flex-Pay to allow your business to pay for web development with affordable monthly payments. We offer your business easy monthly payments of 2, 4 or 6 months on web development projects. If you choose to use our Flex-Pay payment option, you must let us know before we prepare your project invoice.
- 2 equal, interest free, monthly payments on projects between $1500 and $3000.
- 3 equal, interest free, monthly payments on projects between $3000 and $5000.
- 4 equal, interest free, monthly payments on projects over $5000.
Failure to Pay:
Any payments by check that does not clear will be charged a $50 fee added to customer’s final balance.
While Warm Media will provide our clients with reasonable notification, Warm Media retains the right to withhold all of products, services and projects, with the exception of any files and content provided by the client, until the final balance is paid in full. All RELATED projects, products and services will be interrupted and taken offline on accounts that reach 14 days past due.
Projects, products and services that are interrupted and taken offline for nonpayment are subject to a $50 storage fee added to customer’s balance every 30 days past due and may be subject to a one time $75 re-connection charge to restore products, services and projects. If a past due balance remains unpaid by client after 60 days, Warm Media reserves the right to remove, delete and resell customer’s products, services and projects, with the exception of any files and content provided by the client.
If a client does not respond to all attempts (minimum 5 documented attempts) of communication for a duration of at least fourteen consecutive days (14) by phone or email during the design, the project will be canceled without prior notice and no refund will be issued.
Due to the nature of our products and services, all payments to Warm Media are nonrefundable unless otherwise decided by Warm Media and only Warm Media.
For any recurring services, you must notify Warm Media at least 7 days before the next automated renewal date if you wish to cancel the recurring payments without any further recurring charges. Warm Media shall not be held responsible for recurring invoicing or automated payment if notified less than 7 days before the next renewal payment date, and this payment will not be refunded.
Warm Media will not enter into negotiation if a chargeback or payment dispute is initiated by any individual or company. Our Refund policies are clearly stated above. If we receive a chargeback or payment dispute on a valid charge, a $100 chargeback fee will be added to customer’s balance.
To be transparent as possible, we charge a fixed hourly rate for all our work, irrelevant of what type of project it is. All projects are completed on a first-come first-served basis billed at $125/hour.

Warm Media strives to offer the best network and server uptime. We guarantee that our network will stay up 99.9% of the time. Like all hosting companies, from time to time we experience downtime. Server uptime on the other hand is dependent on a variety of issues, ranging from the activity by our clients, traffic to other sites, hardware failure, to issues like hard-drive failure and file corruption. Most issues are resolved in approximately 15 minutes, however on extreme issues it may take more than 15 minutes to resolve the issue. In these extremely rare circumstances the server may require additional time to resolve the issue. This can take several hours and in very rare cases as much as a day to get your server back up and running.
