    Hi Matt,

    Congrats on Vendr release, Matt. Its a beauty.

    For smaller shops we typically do shopify/shopify lite. Mostly because it fits their budget - not because they actually want Shopify.

    Are there any plans for way smaller budget licenses?

    best jesper

    Hey Jesper,

    We are looking at a few options atm but non of these are set in stone. We can't offer supper cheap or free like shopify as we just aren't big enough, but we might be able to offer some assistance.

    We are contemplating things like a "Startup" license which gives you 6 months or so at a discounted rate after which you would be required to purchase a full license, or potentially renew the startup license till you were in a position to buy a full one. This ideally would allow people to test an idea or get up and running and pay once you have some income coming in.

    Other options are potentially to offer credit to spread the cost of the license over say 3 to 6 months. Though we need to work that one out as I don't think we can use any official credit companies due to it being software based so might just have to be a risk we take.

    We have also got the ability to offer subscription pricing which would make for smaller monthly payments but in the long run costs more than the standard license due to it needing to be maintained for the life the site.

    These are a few options that we are looking at, but we would love to hear your (and others) thoughts on these and whether any would be more desirable than the other.

    Cheers

    Matt

    We've been discussing more of a partner program, but this isn't that fleshed out atm. If you have any particular setup with expected volume though, for now I'd just say drop us a line and we can discuss the options.

    Hi Matt, thanks for quick response.

    A few thoughts:

    The small shops can typically afford the monthly Shopify subscription around $30-$50. Some could afford a full license later on.

    They would choose Vendr because it fits with their Umbraco setup and get started without much developing.

    They should need zero support from you as we support them. They wouldnt even visit our as they are shop owners, not devs :-)

    best

    Jesper

    Thanks Jesper, that's some really useful feedback, thank you.

    In those scenarios, do you get your customers to sign up to the Shopify subscription directly and you do the development? Or do you sign up on their behalf and re-bill it back to them?

    Feel free to drop us an email to hi@outfield.digital if you'd rather not disclose this type of info publicly.

    Many thanks

    Matt
