Hi Irma,

I would suggest you practice typing the same kind of document and see how long it takes you to finish it. Time yourself and figure out the price according to your rate. It works for me.

We don't discuss rates. Karla gives you great advice, Irma.

You may also wish to peruse other VA sites who offer typing services and check out what others charge.

Smile Re: Rate?
I'm sorry. I was told that charging per word is the simplest pricing method for typing a document. I understand that the standard rates start at 5 cents per word or using the method of pricing a group of words. For example, a 400-word article will cost $20 at 5 cents per word.

But it was suggested that I charge an hourly rate. I was wondering what is an average hourly rate that VAs charge???

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks.
