I usually buy my own strings and take it to the shop. They charge $12 CDN for labour only.

I charge $12 for labour or $17 including Yonex BG-65. Any other strings generally will be $20 - except the newer more expensive strings. My price is low because I am giving something back to the badminton community. Others including shops generally charge around $25 including common strings.
I string up to 27lbs on demand, but usually won't string a racquet with a crack in the frame - even a minor crack.

We had to ship the rackets with broken strings to our trusted shop (badmintonversand.de), so we paid about 24€ / racket with a Superbraid string (including shipping).
1 1/2 years ago I started to do it myself and I take ~14 € for the labour cost.
Sportshops (we don´t have special Badmintonshops in Germany I believe) take 20-25 € and do not really know how to do it properly, because their mainbusiness in terms of stringing is tennis and squash.

I string my own rackets. For labour only I ask 10 euro's. Depending on the strings it will be 12.5 euro (bg65) or 15 euro (bg80,ng98,ultimax66) Guess I am kinda cheap in Holland.

In my part of Canada, the average at clubs seems to be as follows (ballpark)
BG 65/65Ti - 22/24$ CAD
BG80 - $30
NBG95 - $32
NBG98 - $34
BG80P - $38
they appear to order North American string which seems to be the reason for high prices.
I order from MBS most of the time and charge less.... mostly just for intermediate players.

most non-pro stringers charge 5gbp for labour, or roughly 10gbp with strings around here. the pros charge around 12gbp for labour, though quality can vary greatly.

My stringer charges $7-15 for the strings and a $13 labor fee. Really good stringer too.

I do stringing only for my friends. Charge 120-140 SEK depending on string (BG65-BG80).
Racket shop at the badminton hall takes 200-240 SEK ......
Think I will break even two years after invsting in the machine, from now on every stringing is making me money
