Version 5.0.0 More Previews
#39
I understand there is come concern about purchasing twice. That's why for the first month I'm pricing the new version at only $4, which is the difference in cost between the original version and the new version. Yes, new users who wait are going to get a steal by buying the new version for $4, but someone has to lose in order for me to offer a discounted price to existing users. In this case, I'm the one losing as I'm suffering the loss of $9 per sale (on top of Google's 30% cut). The alternative is for me to offer no discount to anyone, and anger a lot of existing users that I have already promised a discount for, or not offer the app as a new product (and instead just as an update), eliminating the possibility to use the old version in parallel, and significantly reducing any profit I will get for the new version, reducing my ability to continue supporting the app as much as I am. Or I can just make everyone mad and go with a subscription model which ensures that new users can get the upgrade for free, but will be charged something every month for access to the app.

Because of the way the app store pricing and purchasing is handled, my hands are tied. I can't charge a different price for existing users to upgrade, but full price for new users. So yes, I'm sorry you are losing out on getting the app for $4 instead of full price. If people want, I can just release the new app at full price, and offer "rebates" for existing users, where I will have to transfer money to you over something like PayPal. Then new users don't get the unfair discount and existing users can get the discount they want. I highly doubt people want to mess with this though...
