Pricing and Payments
Projects are billed hourly or by the project, depending on the scope of the work. Specific fees and payment terms will be detailed in your project proposal. A 10% monthly fee may be charged on any invoices more than 7 days overdue. Fees are non-refundable. Finished work not yet approved by client beyond 15 days shall be billed. Client assumes responsibility for all collection of legal fees necessitated by default in payment. Standard practice is to charge 30% of the project fee on acceptance of the project, 30% as a progress payment once half way through the project, and the 40% balance is due on project completion, or go-live in terms of the website.
All prices quoted are exclusive of GST and are subject to change without notice.
SchoolPoint pricing is $2 per student per year from September 2022, rounded up to the nearest hundred students. This includes access to all SchoolPoint functions including Careers. We have also had to increase the Premium Support from $1000 per year by $200. This is now billed at $100 per month from January 2023.
Please note, from January 1st 2023, SchoolPoint will be billed MONTHLY not annually. Any new schools will now be billed monthly from sign up date.
For SchoolPoint the minimum annual student cost is $600+GST. This costing includes ALL Pre-enrols in KAMAR and the figures we use are obtained via KAMAR data, or the latest Education Counts Roll Return. This is because many of our schools use the SchoolPoint Conferences function to interview pre-enrols, and there are always year 12/ 13 students leaving a school- it swings in roundabouts. You can read more about our pricing changes HERE.
SchoolBridge is tiered monthly pricing effective from August 2023 for new schools and may change on 1st April 2024 for most existing schools. Pricing varies depending on your school roll size. This cost includes unlimited access to the SchoolBridge App, Magic Login and our Ka Pai Rewards (PB4L) and all new SchoolBridge Features as they roll out. We also include your pre- enrols as SchoolBridge can be used for many areas for these students also. Each year in March, we will re-evaluate the student numbers for your school and increase the monthly billing -if required- accordingly.

This covers general support/ guidance during the month. We are here to support your ongoing use of SchoolBridge via Phone, Email and Chat and offer a range of extensive help guides and videos. Building of forms or assistance with complex forms is outside of our general support, although we do offer help with this it will fall under our Premium Support plans or ad-hoc chargeable support, clarified below.
Please note that if there is a change in Key contact for your school after initial set up training is provided, or if full retraining is required, this will incur a further charge of $155 per hour- *see below for more detail.
Initial Setup Costs
The minimum one-off cost for set up is $600+GST for both SchoolBridge and SchoolPoint.
This includes your initial overview, setup of your School Data Sync (KAMAR/Wonde), and up-to 4 hours of onboarding support, training and form setup.
General support is offered ongoing, during usual business hours via our live website chat, email and phone. Free access to all Webinar Workshops.
This general support is included in your subscription charges.
Our premium support package for SchoolPoint includes priority support via live website chat, email and phone, and includes additional training of key users (normally via Webinars, or our remote Team Viewer software).
This also provided access to all Webinar Workshops.
The premium support contract fee is additional to your monthly support or hosting charges:
The Free trial ends and your paid subscription begins when Students are asked to login and start using our products. The initial set up fee will be payable at this time or at the end of the 30 day trial, which ever comes first.
We make every effort to be as accurate and complete as possible on estimates. To receive a project estimate, you must submit the exact specifications of your job. In some cases, a range estimate will be given, based on knowledge of project at time of estimate. If, upon receipt of all project elements, We determine the scope of the project has been changed from the originally agreed-upon concept, the project may be re-estimated.
Minor revisions are anticipated, but major design/content changes may go beyond the scope of the estimate. The client's approval will be obtained for any increases in fees or expenses that exceed the original estimate by 10%. Final fees and expenses will be shown when invoice is rendered. Estimate is valid for 30 days from date of estimate. All outsourced fees will be estimated separately.
Ad-Hoc Changes Outside of your Support Agreement

Email hosting whether via our Hosted Google platform or another platform are on sold at a very reasonable rate which generally just covers our reseller costings. Domain Names and renewals are currently $45.00 plus GST per year. These rates are subject to change without notice depending on exchange rates and inflation.
