What is a seat-based or per user subscription billing model?

Seat-Based

The seat-based model bills a price per quantity upfront on a recurring basis. This model best represents billing per user/seat for time based access.

 

EXAMPLES

  • CRM: ZOHO charges $20/user/month
  • Customer Support: UserVoice charges $45/agent/month
 

HOW TO SETUP THIS MODEL

The seat-based model is a plan with a base recurring charge and the ability for the customer to select a quantity. If you are using our Hosted Payment Pages you will want to select the "Editable Quantity" checkbox, so your subscribers have the ability to set a quantity at sign-up.

If you have a per seat/user charge separate from a base recurring charge, you can use fixed-price add-ons with editable quantities.
