#344: I want to use the design mediation services to sell my design and I already made international patent filing for it for that purpose but I do not know how to set the price for my design?
A very good way to determine the price for a good design project is to take and present it into several interested companies (of course after due diligence of for example registering, patenting work and after perhaps asking them to sing a Non Disclosure Agreement NDA whenever possible) and let these companies bid and compete against each other, this way you can set the price bar as high as possible, in most cases the companies would offer lump sum payments while they could also offer royalty payments. In some industries it could be easier to track number of units sold or the number of times your design is used and in this case the royalty payments can be a good idea especially if the volume would be high, but in other industries it is not possible and in this case the lump sum payment would potentially be more desired. Some designers could also sell their designs as a hybrid of royalty and lump sum payments, but to do so, you need to be relevantly famous with a proven track record of designs with market success.
