I would think about setting this up as a subscription with automated invoicing through a paypal subscription or Stripe.

Maybe $49/mo including setup and twice monthly backups/status checks (look at automating this). (Adjust monthly subscription on your typical hourly rate and value of service you are providing, I'm just throwing a number out there).

Thank you for your valuable comments

If you go the subscription route, rather than billing by the hour as brudgers suggests, then make it VERY CLEAR what your subscription service includes. Anything past that, they need to pay up.

When in doubt, spell it out, because if you don't, it's likely people will expect more of you than you're offering.
