• Preferred mode of payment for technology/service licensing

    by  • October 30, 2013 • Business model, strategy

    At Vaibmu, we recently conducted a survey-based research on uptake trends of value-added features by digital classifieds.

    We also asked C-level executives of leading classified and media companies worldwide how (and if) they would be willing to pay to outsource value-added features or services from a third party.

    As we know now, in contrast to vendors expectations -who often prefer revenue share or service-usage based payments-, companies from 15 countries who responded to the survey, actually preferred a flat monthly payment for the licensed services.

    How surprising do these results look to you? If you would subcontract an external technology offering, which pricing arrangement would you prefer?
