Pricing a product for various overseas territories?
I sell a very good Saas solution and the majority of our clients are in North America, Europe and the US.

Even though we're affordable to the 1st world countries we're a lot less affordable to the poorer nations.

I have a solution for this and am presently running a test in South Africa where we've partnered with a marketing agency and rebranded our tool with their logo. They're getting it 60% cheaper than what we charge here and they sell it as their tool.

And no, I'm not stupid, they're not allowed to sell it outside South Africa.

But what of other countries? Is there any kind of pricing index where you can see how much £100 is worth? Not in currency, but in buying power.

Cheers for any advice.

Alfs - Having been in sales at Oracle, IBM, Bloomberg and other big orgs pricing is usually standard Worldwide. With SaaS apps need the buyer to understand that it's an OPEX not CAPEX so won't affect budgets the same way, and in some overseas countries as they like a deal often heavily discounted so they think they've won a big discount

The poorer countries, by definition, also have cheaper labour, so it's more difficult to use the case of saving money through automating.

Then there's the realisation that automating processes could put local, low-level jobs at risk; not a pleasant thought if most of your workforce are friends & family from your own village (who you got into the company in the first place).

I guess you should look at SDP. I too work for a SAAS company based in Denmark. We struggle to sell to poorer countries as the powers that be do not really take into account what companies can afford.

What do you sell Alfs? I work for Keepit.com

No. Your dementia is playing up again. Go and have a lie-down.

Re: Pricing a product for various overseas territories?
I live in Colombia and have had experience negotiating technology contracts here and in Latin America. One, you are right it is the relative purchasing power of the currency. Two, generally only larger institutions are interested in software purchases. Thirdly the currency the contract is written in is also an issue. Developing countries tend to have depreciating currencies so multi payment contracts, over several years can be risky and expensive for local companies.

Using third parties for distribution in my experience doesn’t work out too often. If nothing else once you’ve discounted the software they will then add a hefty margin on top. You can spend a lot of money checking the third parties out as well.

Lastly if you are successful someone locally will likely set up a cheap look alike and destroy your pricing structure. Getting copyright protection overseas on software can be a real nightmare.
