But you will have gotten paid. You don't have to charge for the full price of the work, just the art work. Make it non refundable. Plus you will learn that if someone is going to buy from you, the price will not scare them off. If you hide the price, it will have you working for free because when you tell them the price they will run. Not all people, but the dead beats will run. If someone is playing games about want you charge, they will play games the whole way through. Stick to your guns and don't short yourself. If they don't like what you charge, let'em walk, bye, see yea, have a good day.
