I dont know node js but let me just say my opinion.

How many hours do you plan to work daily on this 2 weeks?
Why dont you sell the projects by hours?
If you work 8h a day, that means that you'll work around 112 hours on this project, Thats 12$ per hour.
If you think you market value is 12$ per hour go for It, if not rethink again on project Cost.

Thank bairrada97 for your comment.

When I work for local projects I charge 10 - 15$ an hr. But when I go remote I often value myself 20 - 30$ an hr.

Here is how I calculated this amount (1500$):

  • Cost per hr: 25$
  • Working 5hrs/day
  • Number of days: 10
  • Misc fees: 250$
