Probably as you know, HostFiti Website Builder is a Kenyan company whose target clientele is mainly Kenyans. While this has helped our company grow to where it is, we are yet to tap to the international market and we didn’t have such plans for the better part of the year.
However, in the recent weeks, especially after Covid 19 started wrecking havoc in most economies, we started getting requests from potential clients in other nations on how they can sign up for our service (payment options were only limited to M-Pesa). Add to that, majority of our affiliates requested us to add more payment options such as PayPal since their audience may not be from Kenya.
After a lot of deliberation, we have unveiled new pricing plans for all countries except Kenya as below and added the PayPal method of payment.
The pricing for Kenyan customers is as below.
Why the price increase for international clients?
Like any other business though, our operating costs will increase overtime so as to serve them the best as we can.
To maintain the high level of service, this increase is necessary. We’re confident that our prices remain competitive within our sector for the quality of the service that we provide and as always, we’re focused on the results we provide to clients.
How will we know who is from which country?
We will user the user’s IP address to know the user’s location.
What is an Internet Protocol (IP) address? An IP address is a label which is used to identify one or more devices on a computer network, such as the internet. It is comparable to a postal address. The IP address can be used to detect where a user is located, which ISP they are using, the timezone of their location etc. View details about your IP address here.
To test how our website is shown to international users, you can use a Virtual Private Network or services such as HIDE me.
Once our systems detect the user’s IP address location the applicable pricing plans will be shown on the pricing page. `
Will this affect my affiliate commissions?
No. The same commission rates will still apply depending on your affiliate tier.
Whats more? The commissions are recurring. Supposing your referral subscribes to the Business Plan at $15/month, you will get your commission every month when they renew.
