I learned about this in marketing actually! Being the lowest price is definitely not always the best because customers will question the quality/validity of the product. Follow market price and keep your quality up and you will get the best outcome! Good luck!!

Learned in my management class that having the lowest price automatically makes customers think that the quality is low. You should probably start at a price that is reasonable, so market price seems fit. Good luck to you and your business!

I've experienced this myself selling used things on kijiji. If it's super cheap people think it's crappy and cheap for a reason, when you make it more expensive, people look into it more

It's not just the quality of the product that comes into question, but an actual scam too. Let's say I want my kitchen redone, and I go get a few quotes, I've heard that sometimes people will lower their prices, knowing that they'll never be able to actually do the work for those prices, but then they'll just add on costs or expenses or hours or something which ends up bringing the total to or above what the other companies quoted. Apparently it's a common scam, and maybe op's client genuinely thought there was no way that he'd be able to do the work for such a low price, so he must be scamming them. If you can actually do the work for that price op, try and explain how and why the total comes to that amount and show the client your expense sheet or something. That way you can assure them that you are still using quality materials, and that your price won't go over at the end of the project.

Prove that you are the best at what you do, and make sure you get that customer satisfaction. It's easier said than done, but good luck OP :) that's only one person!

The client must be one of those "you get what you pay for"* types. They probably thought you were selling them crap. *My revision to that is "you get what you pay for or less, but never more."

Yikes! Always, always, always have a signed contract in place outlining expectation of services to be provided, and expectation of payment to be received. And it should be agreed upon and signed by you both before even starting work.. Work with an attorney to set up a template or something.
