It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little - that is all.

When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the service you bought was incapable of doing the things it was bought to do.

The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot, it can't be done.

If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run. If you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.
