Adjusting the price of SimDif around the World
SimDif created a dedicated index, FairDif, to calculate the price of its paid versions. Thanks to FairDif, the price of SimDif is adapted to the cost of living in each country.
SimDif appears to be the first service on the Internet to apply strickly this kind of adaptive pricing. SimDif also includes a free version which is available to everyone.
A single fixed price doesn't have the same value for everybody in the world
Cheap for some, barely affordable for others, too expensive for those who need it the most.
Based off reputable pricing indexes including the World Bank, OECD, and Numbeo, FairDif attempts to estimate a price that has the same value for everyone. For example, one year of the Pro version is $69 in the US, and approximately $81 in Japan, $25 in India, $33 in Nigeria, and $76 in France.
This does not mean people in India or Nigeria are paying less than the people in France or the US. It may be a different price, but the relative value is the same.
To the best of our knowledge, SimDif is the first app and online service to provide this kind of adaptive pricing
