Kachingle - Different From Other App Revenue Models
Many app vendors and content providers are not converting as many free and trial users to paying customers as they would like. App revenue models like trial-pay, advertising, in-app upgrades, and Freemium just don't work for most. So what makes Kachingle so different?
The Kachingle Platform bundles complementary apps and content at irresistible price points, enabling app and content vendors to co-market their offerings to the aggregated user bases of all Kachingle partners. Consequently, vendors see increases in conversions, large increases in paying user bases, and revenue uplift which we can demonstrate with a very robust financial model.
What makes this all work is our patent-pending, usage-based micropayment engine that has been live for three years in the donation space. This engine, powered by PayPal for disbursement of revenues to vendors, allows us to distribute subscriber fees to Kachingle partners based on subscriber usage, making it fair and compelling to vendor and user alike. Our financial system is so efficient we can effectively process distributions of just a single penny, and in 24 currencies!
Below is a brief overview of the key 4 elements that make Kachingle so efficient, compelling, and easy to use. For details, see our FAQ section.

Kachingle has developed a sophisticated financial modeling tool that shows just how effective Kachingle can be for your situation if your company has a Freemium offering. The model has been independently validated by experts at the University of Missouri. It uses your real values (e.g. net price, user base, premium conversion, etc.) and predicts the return you could realize by joining Kachingle.

The 4 Key Elements to Kachingle
The tried-and-true marketing technique of bundling (think cable TV) gets a 21st Century makeover by Kachingle that benefits both vendors and subscribers. Vendors choose their marketing partners from the Kachingle vendor pool, and subscribers choose their premium apps based on the ones they actually use. Both vendors and subscribers benefit from "roll-your-own" bundles that subscribers can expand and contract based on need. read more »
As the number of vendor partners on the Kachingle Platform increases, the pool of users for each vendor to market to grows, thus reducing reach and acquisition costs.
And for subscribers, each vendor in the pool adds more value to their subscription, and allows them to discover apps they may never have otherwise would have been exposed to.
Social Media Virality
Vendors can choose from a variety of social media tools to tell the world that their subscribers love and use them. And subscribers can choose to be fully anonymous, or fully known and facebooking and tweeting their usage and passion for the apps they love! All of this is automatic based on vendor and user preferences. No effort is required.
At the core of Kachingle is our powerful, robust, and proven usage-based micropayment engine, coupled on the payment delivery side to PayPal's APIs. Our micropayment engine can efficiently manage transactions ranging from a single penny to millions of dollars. We manage all financial transaction fees for vendors and subscribers alike, thus insuring there are no hidden fees, and no hassle.
