Adjusting the price of SimDif around the World
FairDif is the index created by SimDif for the price of the paid versions. The price adapts to the cost of living in each country. SimDif appears to be the first service on the Internet to provide this kind of adaptive pricing. SimDif 2 also includes a free version which is available to everyone.
A single fixed price doesn't have the same value for everybody in the world
Cheap for some, barely affordable for others, Too expensive for those who need it the most.
Based off reputable pricing indexes including the World Bank OECD, FairDif attempts to estimate a price that has the same value for everyone. For example, one year of the Pro version is $69 in the US, and approximately $81 in Japan, $25 in India, $33 in Nigeria, and $76 in France.
This does not mean people in India or Nigeria are paying less than the people in France or the US. It may be a different price, but the relative value is the same.
To the best of our knowledge, SimDif is the first app and online service to provide this kind of adaptive pricing
Localisation: To Support and Promote Languages and Cultures
The majority of the world can now access the internet on a phone
For most, they must use English or another widely used language. Especially those from internet developing countries as there are few or zero online tools in their mother tongue. It is important to reach out to those users and solve this linguistic equation.
One of Simple Different's core values is to respect and promote the rich diversity of the worlds' languages and cultures, before thinking about financial conversion
