Move pricing to pay per use and remove auto charging. This is more ethical.

I don't think you actually need to remove auto charging, but I'd think it would be a great option especially for small packages/pages.
The smallest package you offer starts at <100k views. And I think small or personal pages sometimes just have couple of 100s oder 1.000s page views - in that scenario paying for 100.000 views just feels bad

Love that you're commenting here. The issue is not very clear, sorry about that. With auto charging we mean that we don't want to charge a user right after the trial period. We want to give them an option to choose when the trial ends without charging directly.

ah allright. so my comment is regarding the first part (pricing to pay per use) then :D

haven't thought about the auto charging but it is actually a great idea 👍

wow thats a pretty interesting article. there is actually a lot of thought in pricing - or at least it can be.

so what are your take aways from the article? still want to pursue pay-per-use? or rather different tiers? or.... ? :D

I would love to combine usage-based pricing with feature-based pricing. For example fine grained user access control is something bigger companies care about and smaller users don't.

I want to prevent pages looking like this (way to many options):

Screenshot

I just want a basic selector with some check boxes for extra features.

page views + events price with badge
100,000 $20 $10
250,000 $40 $20
500,000 $60 $30
750,000 $80 $40
1,000,000 $100 $50
>10,000,000 M * $50 M * $25
>100,000,000 M * $40 M * $20
>1,000,000,000 M * $30 M * $15

M = 1 Million

Extra features:

  • High grained user admin (unlimited users) $20/m
  • Custom domain (bypass ad-blockers) $10/m

Discounts:

  • Yearly gives you 2 months for free
  • Placing a badge on your website gives you 50% discount (except for the extra features).

I did a bit or calculations on my current customers:

Note that it only shows customers with 10,000 page views or more because I will charge below 10,000 the same as 10,000.
