    Payment query for logo designs.

    Hi chaps,

    What is the best way to get payment for designing logo's for people? I've had a number of ppl wanting to pay me to design logos for them but i'm not too sure about the best way to go about it.

    Is it to send a cheque through the post? i'm not too keen on that idea...

    any other ideas?

    paypal seems a very popular choice for online transactions, especially as your client may not be in the same country as you!

    You will probably see this a lot when browsing the trading Post and as an accepted method of payment for auctions like Yahoo and Ebay.

    Checkout www.paypal.com for more details.

    Yes thats about rignt and $50 is what most offer in the Trading Post for a logo, for casual designers anyway. the different currencies can obviously make a difference in the actual money you recieve, for example Nicky is offereing a logo contest for 50, which is a lot more than $50 for some people.

    Personally, I would charge in your own currency at an amount in bewteen the 2 different values.

    At the end of the day it depends on the quality of your work and the experience and portfolio you have, which you should set your price around.

    These amounts are paultry compared to what you would charge as a professional outfit though and for that you would recieve a whole dseign process in the creation of you corporate identity, which for many, a simple logo actually is.

    As far as I am aware, they charge a percentage commission for business and premier users.

    Personal users do not get charged a commision rate. The only money they actually debit your account with is a small amount at the sign up stage to verify that the CC is valid. This money is then refunded into your paypal account.

    When designing logo's for people the more they know what they want the less the design will be.

    For example 2 logo designs were billed at $20 for 4 hours, the client didn't like one of the logos. Add 2 more hours on. So he paid around $120 just because he didn't give me the information I needed.

    I never thought us utilizing paypal to bill customers.
    Experimentation is key.
