I have read in another post that metered billing cannot be changed once an app is launched. Is it possible to change it for new merchants on a going forward basis?
For example, I am thinking that I would want to launch with a free or very low cost plan to entice initial merchants to sign up. Once I am through the initial phase, I may want to raise the rates (I certainly would if I started with a free plan). It would be fine to leave the initial merchants on the low or free plan.
Ideally it would work like this: 1) First five merchants would get a free plan. 2) I would raise rates substantially in order to provide a disincentive new sign ups during the "beta" period. 3) Then, I would lower rates to get new merchants to signup. 4) I would possibly raise rates slowly.
Can this be achieved? Are there any documents on pricing strategies?
