Suggester's words: Commission Guide by =DarlingMionette is a great guide for any artist here on dA who is wanting to start offering commissions or who just wants to reexamine their current commission method. This guide covers everything from work ethics, payments to advertising. A true gem of a guide every artist should have stored away in their arsenal.

I have a few of questions...

1) do I have to be a premium member to do commissions?
2) how do I link my current PayPal account to DeviantArt?

3) once I have started and I upload a commission, should I tell people how much I charged for the picture? Or should that information be just for that client to know?

You don't have to have premium member ship to do commissions. 

If I were you I would not link my Paypal out in the open for every
one to see. It's just not smart. You're better off sending a note to the person/people who want a commission from you. 

People can easily tell what you charged. Let's say you upload a full body. People can easily go to your commission page and see for themselves. You want commissioners, but at the same time you don't want to be shoving prices down their throats.

Hope this helps.
