Dear CS-Cart marketing team,
 
I have a great idea that I consider can increase your brand, customer satisfaction and increase license sales.
 
In this period of time everybody is talking about start-ups and become entrepreneur, this is the trend and I guess all we agree on this and will not be great that CS-Cart as a eCommerce solution to be part of it ?
 
For a start-up to pay a license and after that pay for custom development is kinda hard and is not available for all of them BUT if you can create a simple system where your entrepreneurs can purchase licences with a longer trial time period, can be for 6 months or for a orders total amount, because it the store is selling will also be willing to pay for the license because you help him sell and also be like a trusted partner that was shoulder to shoulder from day one.
 
After a period of time when income will be greater than X for example you send a notification to admin in backend:
 
Now once you start making money with our software you have 1 month to pay for license, please go here and pay the $X amount!
 
This can increase the software popularity, the number of developers and will increase license sale on a long term.
 
* Sublime Text is doing already and I guess many more, you have a lifetime trial but still pushing you trial messages until you buy ;) because at the end bring you value and help you make money.
 
If you have an opinion please share it to help make it better
Ideas worth spreading
 
Thank you,

Free-mode is actually the software for these entrepreneurs who would like to launch a start-up, but don't have money for the license.

It's also not expensive when you compare to other modules or components which has to be bought for other systems.

What Vali is saying is: if you let customers get a taste of the real, full version cs-cart, chances are higher they will buy the product eventually.

 

At the moment, when they are using the free version, they don't know what they're missing, so they might not buy because they don't always see the benefits of the features the paid version offers.

That's why we have a 30 days trial version.

From our point of view this is enough to get the taste of a full version.

Yes, you are right they can taste, but they are not making money in this short period of time ;) to pay for the license, I know that in order to make money you need to put money but at the beginning is a little hard if you are not lucky, to share my personal experience for become a cs-cart reseller I put all the money I got from my first project :D and worth every penny

 

This are only an idea that will help both, cs-cart and customers from my perspective
