Client used my work on their walls without rising my fee

I have a collaboration with a new vegan restaurant in Kuala Lumpur.

At the beginning I was supposed to create the graphics for 9 IG posts. I have done part of them and they have enjoyed them so much that they asked me to do their entire brand identity.


It is my first gig on Upwork so I try to be as attentive and nice as possible, so I accepted a lower fee than usual. 

I have created their entire brand identity and also some stickers for them to use on Social media. 


Turns out, they already used the stickers on their walls, without rising my fee. Is this even okay?

Also they asked me to do some revisions because they got bored of some texts that they sent to me. How can I deal with this situation without fighting and without getting myself a bad review?

Once you deliver your work to a client, they can use it any way they want. There would be no justification for trying to get a larger fee because they used your work in a way that you didn't foresee.

Thanks, I just wanted to make sure that it is completely normal and that I am not going through a mild scam 🙂
