As I was onboarding some new fonts recently, it occurred to many that distributors have gone away from custom tiers and related pricing. For example, one only needs to enter the default font family price and the base individual font style pricing and that's that.
All other multipliers for end users and special licenses (app, web, etc) seem to be automatically calculated based on the distributors formula.
While I do appreciate the time savings, it makes me wonder if it harms the consistency of my pricing across all distributors. Also, I do see value in being able to offering micro tiers for single users, two users, etc rather than just the base tier be for Up to 5 users.
Wasn't sure if I was alone in my nostalgia for custom tiers or if font buyers now expect the standard tiers in predictable chunks.
