Advice to fellow artists

--- ENGLISH version ---

Hi everyone! How are you doing?
Today I'd like to talk about an important subject for anyone who sells commissions (or if you usually buy art I guess you can also find this journal interesting).
Basically I'm trying to save little amounts of money every month to try and commission someone every few months, because I never have much time to draw my characters and why not I want to support other artists too by commissioning them.
For the last 2 or 3 months I've seen a lot of my fav artists opening commissions slots but when I take a look at their info... they barely have a couple of rules and it's usually "I start working after I've been paid" or "No refunds" and that's all.
And this bugs me so so much because I've been scammed in the past where I paid for an artwork I never received (hopefully it wasn't a big amount), and even if I know those artists, even if I've been watching them for so long and I know they finish their commissions, I

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacks
I decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
Disclaimer 1:
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
Disclaimer 2:
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!

How to avoid chargebacks
No new info added. Just revamping this because I've seen a couple of chargeback cases lately, and since I've gained watchers since the last time I updated the journal I don't want anybody to miss this helpful info.

Puede que haya gente que ya conociera esto pero yo acabo de enterarme y quiero compartirlo con vosotros.
El uso de facturas no nos protege al 100% contra estos fraudes porque como siempre Paypal se excusará en que no hemos enviado nada y somos nosotros lo que intentamos robarle el dinero a la otra persona.
Pues esto se acabó.
Desde los Detalles de la factura, abajo hay una pequeña opción de "Añadir número de segumiento" (puede que tengáis que ver la factura desde el sitio clásico de Paypal, al menos a mí sólo me aparece si lo hago así). Y desde allí en Estado del Pedido elegís la opció

Tips for Artists - Pricing Your Commissions!
I received a question recently about prices, and felt like sharing my ideas here, so more people might find it useful. If pricing work has ever been a pain for you, or you really just feel overwhelmed in figuring out how to set up your commission page, read on! And just a quick note before we begin, these are just my opinions on the matter. They are not the only methods that work, they are just the best methods I have found for my own work. :)
Price is a pretty big topic, and the "right answer" is very elusive, because price is pretty much up to what you can convince people to pay. If you are looking for a golden standard, than let me share a secret with you: It doesn't exist. But I'd be happy to share what I know, if it helps! Goodness knows I had my fair share of frustration with trying to figure the "right price" for my work. Here's my Commission Info page:
Feel free to copy/paste any of that you think wo
