    I understand the premise behind them, this isn't about that. It's just that I'm curious as to why the non-recurring ones are cheaper.

    Is the upgrade actually cheaper and you pay an extra month every 6 to not have to get a new one yourself? Does buying in bulk get you a discount? I don't understand the logic behind having non-recurring cost 5/6th the price when it's the exact same.
     
  2. It encourage you to.. commit, I imagine.

    This is a fairly standard pricing model for subscription charges. It has two attractions for the merchant:
    • Fewer transactions means fewer transaction fees (which usually have at least a fixed element and/or minimum per-transaction charge).
    • It encourages commitment.

    Additionally, it encouraged a large lump sum to appear in SV's accounts which was every handy when covering the initial expenses of setting up the business which owns SV and setting up the add-on selling part of the business too.

    Would you mind giving a bit of a breakdown on how the company owning SV operates? Like are you now working for SV full time?

    That you could tell us about the company, that you're working SV full time, or both?

    It sounds fancy but in practice it just means we run things as we were doing before, and get taxed for the trouble :V
