Logo pricing help.

Hey guys, I have a couple of questions. I just got commissioned by a streamer to create a logo for him. I am charging him 140 dollars for it, but I am not sure if I charged to low for my sake. I read that a reasonable logo is usually priced around 100-300 dollars.

Also, he told me that he might sell the logo via shirts and other merchandise. Should I expect some residual payment in the future?
Thank you, I appreciate any help.

Its Ok for 140$ for this client, you can increase your logo price for new clients. Regarding residual payment you can talk to the client, and definitely you will get.

So how do I go about the residual payment? Should I have them sign a contract? Also, how much should I take? Like 5 to 10 percent per shirt, or?

Thanks for the response

Fuck that - charge him for the logo - if he wants to sell t-shirts with the logo on it that's his business.

If I was paid commission for every logo I designed for a startup company I'd have zero money.
Who is he selling it to? Why would they buy it?
0 sales = 0 commission.

Charge him for the logo - if he wants to use it for a space shuttle that's his business.

You should have a contract and reasonable expectations of output - including fees for additional work not outlined in the contract, i.e., logo changes for different substrates for example.
