I have yet to respond to their email.

I did think that perhaps I should send them an invoice showing the REAL amount and then show a discount to get to “their price” to make a “soft point” to them for next time. Good idea or a waste of time?

Cheers.

Personally I think this is a bad idea.

If I were you I would send them a detailed invoice for the REAL cost of work done. Don’t offer a discount to get closer to their price or even match it or they will walk over you everytime from here on in.

If there is leway in your price to offer a discount, don’t give it to them yet (and be reasonable to yourself/your work if you need to offer one). Wait until they respond to your REAL cost invoice.
