How to charge your users Corrily-generated prices.
Corrily has the ability to return all sorts of prices. These might be specific to a country, or an audience, or they could be an experimental price. Regardless, the universe of possible Corrily prices is often greater than the base product or plan prices you have set in your payment gateway. Below are the ways we suggest you accommodate this in both web and mobile.
When integrating with web payment gateways or subscription management services the Corrily proposed price can be passed as a price override. Users are still subscribed to the same plan or purchase the same product, but with a custom price different to the gateway-defined base price.
Corrily provides the exact amounts and currencies you should charge in the
product.integrations field of its response.
You can read more about how price overrides work in different services:
- Stripe (via payment intents, subscription creation, or checkout sessions
- Recurly (see
Charging prices on mobile is different from the web in that mobile prices (in-app products in both Google and Apple) cannot be overriden. A mobile in-app purchase product has a fixed price (or fixed set of prices across countries) that cannot be easily changed. As a result, to be able to charge audience or experimental prices on mobile, new products at different price points need to be introduced.
As an example say you had a monthly product
monthly and wanted to charge students at half the price you charge normal
users as well as run an experiment to see whether your baseline
monthly product works best at the current price, half the price,
or 1.5x the price. In that case you would need to create two additional products
monthly_1.5. You could
then rely on Corrily’s segmentation logic to show select groups, such as the students, the
monthly_0.5 price and on Corrily’s
experimentation logic to study whether
monthly_1.5 price points work best.
