Region or country in the world you are developing your meat delivery app from
App developers in different regions of the world charge differently for their services. Generally speaking, app developers in developed countries tend to charge more for their service when compared to app developers in developing nations owing to lesser competition in developed nations for the same service/job.

USA: App developers from the states are the costliest to hire. They charge between USD 50 to USD 250 per hour for their app development services.
