About the Author

David Skok, a five-time entrepreneur turned venture capitalist, writes the forEntrepreneurs blog.



For software and SaaS providers, a simple pricing model can fall short: It can fail to obtain the full amount that users are willing to pay. If customers perceive a low-price solution as inadequate or don't need all the features of a high-priced solution, it can even sap sales. Scalable pricing instead matches price to each user’s willingness to pay, optimizing profit on a customer-by-customer basis. With multiaxis scalable pricing, SaaS and software providers can both increase revenues from current customers and attract new ones.
