I'm launching an online service which is designed to bring together a lot of different services into one package, all manageable online.
The problem I've got is how to handle the pricing. The price structure is as follows:
Service A is a service which runs for a month, it is priced at one of 4 price points depending on how many resources are required. In addition, there are two optional extras which can be added on for a fixed monthly fee.
Service B & C are services with a fixed monthly fee, and then a 'per unit' cost.
Service D just has a fixed monthly cost
Service E (which is storage which underlies all the other services) is priced per GB.
Any monthly fees (including add-ons) are invoiced monthly in advance, and usage is deducted from a pre-paid deposit balance.
Are there any 'best practices' for this kind of thing? Would I just be better putting together packages which include all the services (at varying levels)?
The closest example I can think of would be cable services - e.g offering television, phone and broadband with varying levels of packages and some parts of the service billed in arrears based on actual usage.
