Hi all.

Also, there are many of us who would love to have some guidance about pricing, as well as some concrete examples that others use.

If it's links to websites, or "old" prices, that still works- but I would always like to see how others navigate this part of the business.

Nothing wrong with bringing up the question. You don't know where to look if you don ask.

There are some concerns about discussing current pricing in this forum, which we sponsor as a 301c(3) educational entity.

In general, it is OK to discuss prices actually charge more than 3 months in the past (not what you would charge today). But it would be better to keep it a little more theoretical by pointing to other online information or presenting the components that go into a pricing decision.

For example the discussion here about service fees for providing files, could be put as a "I charge a nominal fee to cover my time, usually about 20-30 min. of effort. You can see my policy here:"
