This month we present a new feature that will delight content creators who want to monetize their apps. A few weeks ago we announced the release of In-App Purchases, which allow you to sell your app's content in the form of subscriptions. Your users could then pay a subscription to access your content or a part of your content.
Today, we offer you a new possibility to take into account in your monetization strategy: remove ads from your app in exchange for a subscription. This is an extremely well-known and popular strategy among app creators, so think about it!
You will find below the summary of improvements and updates made during the month of April 2022:

A subscription-based model is just one of the revenue models that have become an increasingly popular strategy for monetizing apps, in which users subscribe and pay a regular monthly fee for access to exclusive content on the app.
This has proven to be a successful strategy for some newspapers , for example. On the other hand, apps offering a subscription model have to continually improve their offering either with new content or new perks, to retain their users.

When running an online store, the payment gateway you choose to accept payments will have an impact on your sales.
While GoodBarber offers a smooth checkout process with several options such as Apple Pay, PayPal, and offline payment to name a few, some merchants choose the Square POS system as a complement. Square offers powerful features for store owners and hardware for brick-and-mortar stores.
We're often asked how to connect a GoodBarber eCommerce app to Square. You have 2 options:
1. Connect your GoodBarber app to a Square POS with GoodBarber Service+
2. Connect your GoodBarber app to Square with Make
But first, let's go over a few details about Square.

Buy now, pay later (BNPL) is becoming more popular, thanks to the seismic shift the retail industry has experienced over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a result of movement restrictions and lockdowns, changes in consumers’ financial circumstances, and new regulations retailers have to follow, customer behavior has changed.
The impact is apparent in every aspect of consumer behavior — from what and how they buy to how they pay. For many retailers, customers have gone from a fairly predictable demographic to more of a moving target.
BNPL is a magnet that you can use to attract customers to your e-commerce business. And since revenues have become more uncertain, retailers are looking for new and creative ways to attract customers. Let’s look at the advantages of offering this type of payment plan to your audience.

If your eCommerce has been in business for any amount of time, you already know that offering an amazing product isn’t enough to survive — let alone thrive.
Yes, the products you offer have a huge impact on the future success of your business.
But you can’t rely on product quality alone to attract, engage, and retain your customers.
In fact, product quality is no longer the main reason consumers will do business with a certain brand. By today’s standards, it’s much more important to deliver a valuable overall experience to your eCommerce customers.
Finding great products to sell on your website and using SEO and PPC ads to drive traffic isn’t enough these days. Everybody does that. But to differentiate your business from the competition – to really stand out – you need to be hyper-focused on your customers.
If you want to stand out, stand apart, as a retailer - small or big - you need to be in the business of creating incredible experiences. The commerce piece is just an attachment that happens to make you money.

Society evolves through a digitalized and permanently connected environment. Speed and progress are the keywords of the 21st century, where information is consumed everywhere and all the time thanks to the internet. Many sectors have had to reinvent themselves in order to adapt to these changes, such as the press and radio.
