What to Charge Client BPMU

Hi All! I have been customizing WP themes for a couple of years and this is my first venture into WPMU and Buddypress. My client wants a BPMU site with ecommerce.

Any ideas what to charge for BPMU with ecommerce? Client wants to create an auction site.

And - what kind of maintenance would a site of this complexity need? I am thinking 20-40 hours per week to maintain it? What could the client expect to pay for on-going site maintenance?

Input and info very much appreciated!!!

    Well theme development is similar to WP but more time intensive as there are more templates to theme (all the BP features).

    An auction site would require development of a custom BP plugin that would be pretty advanced, so you're contracting a developer for likely 100+ hours.

    Ongoing it depends what your responsibilities are. You set your rates according to your experience and demand and if you need to subcontract for plugin updates, server admin etc.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
