I started charging on divjoy.com 3 weeks ago and just passed $1000 in revenue. Here's a couple things that I've learned:
- People want a PayPal option! I started off with just Stripe and revenue went up 2x when I added PayPal. If you have an international audience it's worth adding.
- Chat widgets work. I get a lot of questions on my checkout page via the chat widget (using crisp) and often close a sale when I'm quick to respond. It's also been a great way to quickly learn what needs to be clarified on the page.
I set a goal to reach "ramen profitable" by the end of the year. I'm about halfway there and launching a big feature this coming week (React Bootstrap support). Hopefully, that gets me across the finish line. I'd love to hear any feedback or ideas you all have!
