Before you jump in to configuring the LaterPay Connector for Video, we recommend that you first think about an overall strategy for how you are going to price your content.
Don’t worry, you can always make changes later - it’s quick and easy to do. For now, however, think in broad strokes about the following:
- What Content Are You Selling? We’re going to try a practical example in a few minutes, so you need some videos to sell. (Note: if you want to sell written articles on your site, please refer to the LaterPay Connector Guide.)
- How Are You Charging Readers? Are you going to sell individual videos, timed access to your entire site and/or subscriptions?
- Pricing. How much do you want to charge for each of those?
Remember, these decisions don’t have to be set in stone - you can always change things up later on.
Checklist: Defining Your High-Level Pricing Strategy
- Identify the videos on your site that you’d like to ask readers to pay for.
Decide how you will be charging readers for your videos.
Define an initial pricing list to ensure consistency (you can change this later).
