That may prove to be short sighted. As a client I'd be furious if I find out
that I was paying substantially more for the same service and, in fact,
subsidizing my competition. Also, the client you're undercharging will most
likely expect you to continue to undercharge. If you happen to need the
money at any given moment (regardless of anything else), then, obviously,
you should do whatever it takes to secure payment. But as a career move,
this is risky.
