Need input on how much a character of mine charges to revive the dead.

My fantasy character Lyria Spellspinner has many services she charges for, being a sorceress, and among those is reviving the recently deceased. As in, so dead only magic can bring them back. (Her power has limits, but that's not important right now.) She offers this service to middle class and upper class, basically anyone who can afford it, and it isn't cheap. But I never had reason until now to be clear on how much she charges. I haven't decided yet what she should charge. I want middle class people to be able to afford it, even if only with a payment plan, but still be more than just chump change for the wealthy. I considered having two prices, one for middle class and one for the rich, but that might cause customer difficulties, and she already said in one of the stories that she had a standard fee for that service.

Despite being a fantasy universe, most of the countries she lives in are fairly modern in many ways, though they use magic to power their technology. To make a lot of things eaasier, I made their money system similar to American money in some regards. So, that in mind, here is the poll:

Poll #1741828 Question about reviving the dead

Which do you think would be the best price, from Lyria's point of view, for reviving the dead?

$10,000
2(7.4%)
$25,000
6(22.2%)
$50,000
6(22.2%)
$100,000
8(29.6%)
Other
5(18.5%)

If you said "Other" in the question above, how much should she charge?



EDIT: Don't know if this is relevant or not, but this service of hers is illegal in the country she lives in. She uses her wealth, position, powers, and cunning to keep her activities a secret.
