How to monetize with a free plan

I am creating an app for smartphones using Glide.

I want the app users to pay a usage fee before using it,
but is there a way to charge them with a free plan?

I want to stick to the free plan. Is there any way to monetize it?

Thank you for reading.

So you will make money, but Glide won’t make any money at all. In fact they will lose money, because they have to pay the costs associated with allowing you and your clients to use Glide free of charge.

Do you think that is a fair deal?

Also, if we all do this, how long do you think it will be before Glide goes out of business?


As more free features you offer, the more users you will have… the bigger chance you have that some of them will use a paid service…
Google offers the most free services… becomes the richest company… :wink:

@kokoro_koto, you can checkout this template:

Your theory is correct.

Just to confirm, is it right to understand that it is not possible to set up a fee before using the app for users on the free plan?

it is possible… I just showed you an example

I’m sure it’s possible, but that doesn’t make it right.

I mean, it’s possible, but free plan only gives you 10 public users… so you wouldn’t be making much money.

That’s why you have my solution… :wink:

Thank you very much, everyone, for your many opinions. I am grateful.

I love Glide so much that I intend to study hard while enjoying it.
I will also consider upgrading in the future.


I think you and I have very different definitions of “solutions” :upside_down_face:


:wink: I’m a rebel… My solutions works on any plan… Without any limits… :shushing_face:
