What is a WordPress development contract?

A WordPress development contract is an agreement between a website development company and a WordPress developer. It is a contract where the developer agrees to build a website for the company. It defines the business relationship between both parties and outlines the scope of the project.

What are the services provided by a WordPress developer?

The following are the services rendered by a WordPress developer -

  • Website development
  • App development
  • API integrations
  • Plugin development
  • Web design projects
  • Logo design
  • Web maintenance

What are the essential elements of a WordPress development contract?

While drafting a WordPress website contract, there are certain important components that need to be included -

Cover page

This is the first section of the contract. The cover page section mentions the basic details like the developer name and the company name.

Legal obligations

The contract must be voluntarily agreed upon by both parties. Mention the legal obligations the WordPress developer will have after entering into the contract with the company. For example, you can specify stating - the developer will not make any changes to the website without obtaining approval from the company.

Consideration

Consideration refers to the fact that the web developer has made a promise for rendering the services to the company in return for consideration, which is usually the final payment of money. In this section, mention the consideration of the parties entering into the contract.

Timeline

Clearly state the time frame of the project proposal that will be delivered to the company. You can break down the entire project into milestones with deadlines for each one. This will simplify the process and will assure that both of you are on the same page.

Pricing and payment terms

Create a pricing table that specifies the WordPress development services along with the pricing. In order to avoid any dispute arising in the future, clearly state the payment terms in the contract. Mention whether the payment for building a website will be on a monthly basis or project to project basis.

Termination

The termination clause outlines the conditions under which the contract will come to an end. Either of the parties, if willing to terminate the contract should precisely state the reason for the project termination.

Warranties and representations

In this section, the developer should mention the rights to use any text content/images of the company in any manner. Furthermore, the developer should also guarantee to the best of their ability that anything supplied by them will not create any harm to the third party.

Indemnification

Indemnification states out the risk factors. It is to eliminate the current and the future liability in the event if things go wrong. For example - the developer needs to clearly mention in case the website gets hacked despite the best efforts then the developer is not responsible for the loss.

Confidentiality

In this section, the developer should mention how it maintains the confidential information of the company. Furthermore, it must specify that the data will not be given to any other party or be utilized for the developer's personal benefit.

Terms and conditions

Now that you have stated the important elements above. If there are certain clauses that should be mentioned as per your business requirements can be included in the terms and conditions section.

Signature

A document is a legally binding contract only when both the developer and the company sign the contract. The electronic signatures confirm that both parties are satisfied with the agreement and the contract is now effective.

Tips on how to draft a successful web development contract

Keep it simple

The contract has to be written in a simple language so that it is easy to understand. The best strategy is to create a contract that makes sense to the parties. Use simple and concise language.

Leverage templates

Drafting contracts from scratch is time-consuming and challenging. A pre-written WordPress website contract will already contain all the necessary elements. All you need to do is simply customize the contract as per your business needs.

Clearly state the scope of work

The scope of work outlines every service and deliverable that is in the scope of the project proposal. Provide a description of how you intend to work on the project proposal, what are the expected deliverables, etc.
