I think $10/hour sounds reasonable.

Hmm.. I would say $10 would be a fair price here in the midwest! So, knowing nothing about NY other than that it is definitely more expensive than where I’m from, I’d say you’re entitled to more than that. It’s a tedious job that she obviously doesn’t want to do herself!

ETA: Do you know, roughly, how long it would take you? Maybe you could figure out how much you’d like to make from it and divide by how long it would take you to find a reasonable price?

@stargazer102706:  I think $10 is more than fair:))) I was think more like $15 but I’m from Australia so money could be different!!!

I’m thinking I’d be expecting about $12.00/hour if I took a real job as a data entry clerk privately (I had this job right out of university but for gov’t/union so it was about $20/hr). 

I think $10 sounds fair to a friend.

$10/hour sounds VERY generous. I know she’s a friend, but what if this takes you absolute aaaages?

I did freelance web design a few years back for a friend and I charged about $20/hour. Any less and it just wasn’t worth it to me.

Secretarial / Admin Entry Jobs in big city centres are paying in the $ 15 to $ 20 Range.

For a friend, I agree charging less seems fair… I say $ 10 at the low end… $ 12 to $ 15 at the high.
