One of my buyer ask for a discount for a massive orders about drawing portraits for his corporate (300 person). First he message me said that he like my style and ask me to do him a sample portrait (he paid).
After I completed and delivered to him and he asked for a super discount price for the rest.
- discount price for each Portrait.
- waived Source File $.
- waived Commercial License $.
- MUST met deadline of delivery. (1 month from now).
Lucky him, I did gave him the discount above as he wish, since Jan is not really good in sales, I wish to have some recovery.
After I gave him the super discount offer quote, he return and tell me he want me draw in another style! (which is ridiculous), I told him I unable to do that and then he said he can’t continue with my offer.
Some of my buyers never ask for discount price even for mass order, as long as we met their deadline for the gig delivery, they’re happy and even give good tips!
What I learnt is that if someone really want your gig, respect your work, they probably won’t ask for discount, and you shouldn’t. It make us feel cheap.
