This is primarily the job, although there may be minor operational changes to make the project work as the project develops.

Payments 1) 50% of the agreed money will be paid in milestone. 2) The other 50% will be added as the project progresses 3) 100% of the money will be released when the job is uploaded to servers and working correctly. 4) No money will be released prior to this, because a non functioning website is of no use. 5) There will be a 20% reduction in payment, if the project is not functioning correctly and fully more than 1 week later than the agreed job time. And by a further 30% if the project is more than 1 month late of the agreed job time.
