How many items will they code for $50? If they will code whatever you want for $50 then that's a pretty good deal. I was willing to pay $150+ for remote coding from Patry before Junior posted his thread. Luckily I waited.
There is nothing wrong with vendors who charge for coding to the people who just don't want to learn or are not good with computers. They are providing a service to them. No one is forcing them to pay.
