We've got an important update for you regarding a new credit system we’re rolling out next week and how it relates to your reseller account.
The vision of BuildFire has always been to create an easy-to-use platform that empowers you to build high-quality mobile apps that facilitate communication and engagement centered around your business or initiative.
With features such as targeted Push Notifications, social walls, SMARTsync updates, and our open SDK, we’ve seen that vision come to life. And we’re not even close to being done.
Why the credit system?
We have found that many of the advanced features like geo-fence local notifications, certain push notifications, user management and tagging, and in-app purchases are more expensive for us to develop and maintain. So to recoup some of these costs, we will be introducing a multi-tiered pricing system.
Here’s the skinny on what you need to know…
Future resellers will have an increase in price with our current feature list. But not you!
Since we value your loyalty, you’ll get all the features you currently have at no additional cost; you’re grandfathered in. Plus, any additional premium apps you add to your account will be grandfathered in as well.
Pricing: How credits are calculated
The credit system is pretty straight forward. Simply think of credits as being equal to $1.
Under your plan, a 10 premium app bundle is purchased for $100/mo (after you've superseded your allotted app amount under your plan).
This means premium apps are purchased at $10/app/mo.
Under the credit system, instead of buying 10 premium apps for $100/mo, you'll purchase 100 credits for $100/mo.
Under the new pricing structure (for future resellers), premium apps will be purchased for 20 credits each.
But you're grandfathered in! :) That means for you, premium apps will still be purchased at 10 credits (or $10) each.
In the future, we’ll continue to expand our advanced feature set which may be offered to you at a higher tiered pricing level, but it’ll be your option if you want to utilize them or not.
We've compiled a feature matrix to give you a breakdown of what the features look like under the new credit system versus how you're grandfathered in. You can check it out HERE
