The minimum support retainer is $500.00. There is a fifteen (15) minute minimum on all website support instances. All fees will be deducted from the client's support retainer on file with FOUR EYES. If work is requested beyond the amount remaining on the website support retainer, FOUR EYES will issue a balance invoice and a new support retainer request.
