StaticForms is a forms back-end as a service which I launched in late 2019 with 30-day free trial and monthly subscription beyond that.
In 2020 I moved it to a freemium model - 100 form submissions for free every month and paid subscriptions for higher submission limits. I believed that this aligned cost with value - a site getting more than 100 for submissions a month is definitely getting value.
The freemium modal has been reasonably successful in terms of attracting users but, so far, no paying customers.
I'm now thinking of moving to a credit-based model - buy a number of credits, each submission costs 1 credit and credits last until they've been used - no monthly commitment, no monthly limits and no time limits.
Interested in what everyone thinks? Is anyone else using a credit-based pricing model? Would you prefer a credit-based pricing model rather than a subscription-based pricing model for a service like this?
