One of the leading modern ways to sell and monetize your software is to offer it using Consumption Based Licensing, charging your customers for what they use, and billing them pre or post-consumption.
Commonly, you may use Consumption Based Licensing in conjunction with Subscription Based Licensing. For example, you may wish to sell a Monthly Subscription where a preset amount of usage (consumption) is included, and then offering customers the ability to purchase the ability to do more consumption when they exceed their initial quota.
Nalpeiron Consumption Based Licensing works by tracking what we call Consumption Tokens, a group of Consumption Tokens is called a Consumption Pool. So, typically, a particular feature belonging to a License Code will have a Consumption Pool. The initial number of Tokens in the Pool is easy to set, and it is equally simple to re-fill the pool as required using simple automated web-service calls or manually in the Nalpeiron Licensing user interface.
What's great with Nalpeiron's Consumption Licensing is that you can use it in conjunction with lots of other forms of our licensing...
For example, you might use our Concurrent Licensing so that only a limited number of users within a bigger total of users can use your software at once. This can even all be done on one license code. So, you can effectively have a group of users all consuming Tokens from the same Consumption Pool. If you sell to businesses this might be high on your wish-list.
As another example, in conjunction with our Account Based Licensing, you can have your users login using their Email Address and Password in order to use your software, (they don't need to be exposed to conventional License Codes at all) and they can consume whatever they pay for. How you want this to work is up to you! Common configurations such as subscription to differently priced tiered offerings including pre-defined consumption limits are just as easy to deploy as a pure and simple Pay-as-you-go Models.
In short, Consumption Based Licensing with its Consumption Token and Consumption Pool logic provides extremely flexible ways you can have this modern Licensing method work for you. If you have a particular scenario in mind, please get in touch, we'll help you ascertain how to do it. With our vast wealth of experience of the demands and needs of different Software Publishers we can help you figure out a way forward that's going to work well for you. Nalpeiron Licensing is better, simpler and faster than anything else out there.
