Frequently Asked Questions

Over the years, many people have asked me the same questions and below I created an FAQ section explaining some of them. Feel free to contact me directly for more details


How long does it take to create a website with Panama inDesign?

Building your website can take about a month, it depends on different factors. If you want to create a directory style website or an e-commerce website it will take a bit longer.

You can make the process easier and faster by providing examples of websites and features from websites you like, by making sure I receive all the photos and content in an organized manner and by making sure you are available for any questions or concerns during the development process.

Can I edit my website myself?

Absolutely! I will provide login details so that you can update your website’s content, without deleting important stuff related to the design of the website. However, if you want full administrative access to your website I can provide this. This would allow you to do anything you want with your website. I am also available for any updates if you feel safer with me doing it.

When I deliver a website project, I make sure to include a document with all login details as well as short video tutorials on how to use your new website.

How much does it cost to build a website with you?

All of my websites are made with premium accounts: Elementor Pro, CrocoBlock (One of best premium add-ons for Elementor Pro, I have agency account which means no payments by client and can use for life as long as website maintains built by Panama inDesign). Most of the website projects I work on start from USD $2,500.  This all depends on your needs and wants, the design and the functionality.

A business portfolio is a lot different from a real estate directory for example. If you want to build a directory or e-commerce website the costs are going to be more.

Panama inDesign is a Panamanian business that pays local taxes and prices here do not include the local ITBMS tax of 7% which is added to the end of the bill. 

Does my website need any maintenance?

Yes, your website does need maintenance. You should regularly be updating your website’s plugins and themes, while making sure nothing will break in the process. Updating your website’s themes and plugins is important for your websites security and functionality.

I build websites using as little extra plugins as possible so that the experience is better, but if you feel like this is too much for you, I offer an affordable website maintenance package for only $50 a month (plus 7% ITBMS tax) that includes updating your website’s themes and plugins, making sure your website runs smooth, monthly backups of your entire website, and a monthly report on your website’s traffic. Contact me for details.

How do you handle payments?

For clients within Panama, I have a bank account for ACH transfers. If you are in Bocas del Toro, Panama you can pay via credit card using Visa, MasterCard or American Express.

I also accept credit card payments via my payment gateway system through Bac Credomatic. I accept Visa and MasterCard.

For most projects, payments are made in two installments, at the very beginning and at the end when work is completed before turning in.

And of course, we can use whichever payment method is the easiest for you.
