Rethinking WordPress Products Pricing Models

Jon Christopher wrote about how he’s rethinking the pricing model for his OrganizeWP product, and he got some good conversation going in Slack about it.

Here’s what he’s doing: “licenses for updates and support will be sold for each major version, and they don’t expire.”

I know first-hand the uphill battle it was to build a healthy revenue model as a WordPress product company. For the first 7-8 years we didn’t have automatic subscriptions, and then after we did it felt much more sustainable.

Jon mentions β€œsubscription fatigue,” which is a growing issue I’m sensing as a customer now. It goes against the grain of the overall WordPress product space for sure, but we’re eager to see how Jon’s experiment goes.
