Hi everyone ;w;! I'm looking for a bit of advice and I was hoping I could find some here. uwu

Recently I've been auctioning adoptables of an original species of mine, and I was contacted by a reputable art doll maker looking to make art dolls out of them. They want to turn them into resin cast art dolls and sell batches of them, relying on me to make the designs, and in return they'll pay me $10 (the usual SB/flatrate I sell each design for) for each one, adding an additional $20 for each one that sells (making it $30, or my usual autobuy in the auctions).

I'm not complaining about it and personally think it's a fair price, but at the same time considering they'll be profiting off my original idea, should I be charging any extra for usage rights or etc? What I'm worried about is if she ever raises the price on them, and profits even more off my original idea- should there be a contract of some sort for something like this or even just overall for this kind of agreement? If so, what should it consist of and how would I go about doing one? I've never done anything like this before so I'm a mix of nervous and excited, haha.

Thank you so much in advance for any responses, I really appreciate the help /w\!

As others have said, definitely get a written contract. Though just to add it might be a smart idea to re-negotiate a percentage that you would get off of each doll sale rather than just a flat fee. That way, in case she ever does decide to raise her prices, you in turn gain some benefit to that.

[Edit] I see now royalties have already been talked about up above. My bad xD
