Design credit or flat fee?

If I design a complete web site of hundreds of users for a company, in a freelance/1099 capacity, AND I am not credited anywhere on the site for design, do I charge a fee for this?

I have been told that there would be a fee in this scenario but I am unsure as to how to determine said fee.

There are some obvious factors off the top of my head such as size of company, scope of site, location, number of unique visitors, etc.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thank you!

I don't know about anyone else, but I both charge for websites AND have a credit. IF they are a company and not a volunteer-driven nonprofit, why should your web design efforts be?

Thanks for the reply. However, I will need to clarify and it's my fault for not being more specific...

The fee would be a one-time charge for NOT being credited on the site. This is separate and different from the cost of designing and/or developing a site.

So, a possible scenario would be that a designer charged a company either a flat fee or an hourly rate for design, said company does not want to show that a third party designed their site, then the designer charges a fee for undisclosed credit on top of the design charge(s).

I am not sure how to arrive at the amount of that charge.
