Can we admit that customers will never pay for your product?

As a consumer I can only agree with what you are saying. Software that is provided free of cost can be extremely difficult to pay for in the future. I think the developers of Paperpile did the correct thing by charging money from day one. Of course there is a case for differential pricing based on the region of origin too. $5 is not the same in US and India and if a pricing mechanism could be developed that took into account the purchasing power parity it would encourage global adoption of your software too.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
