(I do transcribing from home, and a potential customer inquires about rates.)

Customer: “What will it cost to transcribe this interview?”

Me: “It will be [amount] per recorded minute; how long is it?”

Customer: “[Amount] per minute? What if it takes you an hour to transcribe ten minutes? Why should I pay so much?”

Me: “It’s [amount] per recorded minute; the rate is based on how long the recording is, not how long it takes me.”

Customer: “I don’t know why I should pay so much if I don’t know how fast you’ll work.”

Me: “Here’s a link to [transcription service that charges more than I do]; I understand they work very fast.”
