Just wanted to kick of a discussion on selling subscriptions for desktop software. Sometimes getting your users to purchase an upgrade can be a problem.
I haven’t released my application yet but I have been thinking about this. I was planning on selling subscriptions and perpetual licenses but make the subscription cheaper then the perpetual license to discourage people purchasing a perpetual license. But at the same time didn’t want to lose potential customers who hat subscriptions. What do you think? Has anyone tried selling subscriptions to a desktop application and succeeded?
