Have you ever wondered why a pair of jeans costs $53 in the US, but only $15 in Pakistan? Or why does a movie ticket cost $9.80 in Canada, but only $4.20 in Mexico? Or why does a haircut cost $20 in Australia, but only $4 in India?
These price differences are not random but reflect the concept of purchasing power parity (PPP). PPP is a way of comparing the relative value of different currencies based on their ability to buy the same goods or services in different countries. In other words, PPP tells us how much money we need in one country to buy the same things we can buy in another country.
But why does PPP matter for your business? PPP can be useful to your business even if you do not sell jeans; if you are offering digital products or services that can be accessed from anywhere in the world, such as software, e-commerce, online courses, etc., then you need to consider how PPP affects your pricing strategy. If you charge the same price for your products or services in every country, you may be missing out on potential customers, sales, and profits.
That’s because the same price may not have the same meaning or value for people in different countries, depending on their income levels, living costs, and purchasing power. For example, if you charge $100 for your online course in the US, it may be affordable for most people in the US, but it may be too expensive for most people in India, who have much lower purchasing power. On the other hand, while setting the price of your online course at $10 in the US might be perceived as "too cheap," potentially giving the impression of low quality or value, it could be a suitable price point for the majority of people in Brazil, considering their level of purchasing power.
Therefore, if you want to reach new markets, increase sales, and optimize profits, you need to use PPP for your business to set just the right price for your product in each country. But how can you do that easily and effectively? That’s where ParityVend comes in.
ParityVend is an innovative SaaS platform that helps businesses use PPP for their pricing strategies by automatically adjusting their prices based on each visitor’s location and purchasing power. This means that your products or services will be more affordable and accessible in countries with lower income levels, and more profitable and competitive in countries with higher income levels.
How does ParityVend work? It’s simple and easy. Let’s say you have a SaaS product that you want to sell globally. You set your base price to, say, $100. Then, you integrate ParityVend with your website or web app, using either its No-Code or API solution, depending on your needs and preferences.
ParityVend will then detect the country of each visitor and apply the appropriate PPP adjustment to your base price, using the latest and most reliable data sources. You can customize and control everything as you wish. For example, a visitor from India will see a price of $40 on your website, which matches India’s PPP. A visitor from Japan will see a price of $90. A visitor from Canada will see the same price as your base price, which is $100.
By using ParityVend, you can achieve several benefits for your business, such as:
- Expanding your market reach and customer base by making your products or services more affordable and accessible in countries with lower income levels, where you may have previously been priced out of the market.
- Increasing your sales and revenue by making your products or services more profitable and competitive in countries with higher income levels, where you may have previously been leaving money on the table.
- Optimizing your profits and margins by finding the optimal price point for each country, that maximizes your conversion rates and minimizes your costs.
- Enhancing your customer satisfaction and loyalty, by showing your customers that you care about their needs and preferences and that you offer them fair and transparent prices.
