Frequently Asked Questions

How do I pay for services?

On-Demand Consulting for MySQL is a prepaid service, which means you will need some funds on your account to request work. You may add prepaid credits in small amounts as required or purchase one of the discounted credit bundles. Payments can be made by Credit Card or PayPal. Prepaid credits will be automatically debited from your account as billable time accrues.

What constitutes billable time?

Billable time is all effort made by our experts on your request and behalf. For example, it may include things like orientation to your problems and environment, establishing access, performing analyses, experimentation, composing emails, drafting reports. We pride ourselves for being extremely efficient and often complete work much sooner than you would expect.

Do you need access to my systems or data?

Whether we require to access your systems or not depends on the nature of your request. If you ask for an advice, for example, we can often answer your request without seeing your databases, though we may ask you for additional information. On the other hand, if you want us to troubleshoot a problem or perform a task, we will definitely require server access to complete these types of requests.

How do 15-minute billing increments work?

On-Demand Consulting uses hourly billing in 15-minute increments. In other words, we charge 1/4 of the hourly rate for every 15 minutes started. For example, if your task takes us 10 minutes to complete, you will only be charged for 15 minutes and not for a full hour of work.

Can you provide billable time estimate for my request?

We can only provide ballpark estimates for the most common or routine tasks. Problems we are asked to solve are very diverse and often come with too many unknown variables for us to create any reliable estiamtes. However, you can set a cap on the billable time we are allowed to spend on your task without asking for your permission to continue.

How do you access your customers' systems?

We connect remotely over the Internet using secure protocols like SSH or VPN, or using other tools requested or approved by you such as Remote Desktop or TeamViewer.
