As a beginner, try to keep your prices low, but not so low that it gives off an image of low quality. Add all the keywords that are relevant to your services. Also, along with keeping your images and description clear yet catchy, try adding proofs of your capabilities. For this, Fiverr allows you to take tests for different domains. You can also add ...

Assuming that there isn't a significant difference between your first and subsequent figure, I think one strategy to deal with this is to frame it as a best/worst scenario where your first figure is if everything goes according to plan (which you know it probably won't) and your second figure is if some things don't go to plan. You may then be asked to ...

If your shop rate is $45/hr, for every hour a projects is in your shop, the customer owes $45. It doesn't matter if one person is working on the project, or two, or 20.... the rate for every hour is $45. Imagine if you took your car to a mechanic and he quotes you $45 an hour as the "shop rate" for labor. He fixes the car, tells you it took 2 hours. Great ...

I believe your general approach is wrong. The fact that it's a web application is besides the point; how it actually helps clients is the only important factor.

This might be bit of a non-answer, as pricing is notoriously difficult. As you already hint, there's not much else to do than give them a high quote and see how it goes. Even if you could get some seemingly relevant data regarding the pricing of your competitors, who's to say the data is accurate and still relevant? Trial and error is almost all that's left....

I also had to start charging 15 minutes for small things, it's due to interupting the work flow randomly and they usually want it done right away. So even if it takes me 4 minutes, it stops what I'm doing for another client, and that's the price they pay for having me "on call" essentially. This is usually for my small only 5-10 hour a week type ...
