ParityVend: Purchasing Power Parity pricing for Stripe (Beginner-Friendly)ParityVend: Purchasing Power Parity pricing for Stripe (Beginner-Friendly)

Have you ever wondered how some businesses can sell their products or services to customers all over the world while ensuring that their prices are fair and accessible in every market? How do they manage to balance profitability and affordability, without losing out on potential customers or revenue?

The answer is purchasing power parity (PPP), also known as location-based pricing or geographical pricing. PPP is a pricing strategy that adjusts the prices of your products or services based on the average income level of each country. This way, you can offer lower prices to customers in countries with lower purchasing power, and higher prices to customers in countries with higher purchasing power.

Why does this make sense? 

Because the same amount of money can buy different amounts of goods and services in different countries, depending on the cost of living and the exchange rate. 

For example, the average salary in the United States is about $75,000, but at the same time, the average salary in India is $4,680. This means that the average income of a person in the United States was more than 16 times higher than the average income of a person in India. 

However, this does not mean that a person in the United States can buy 16 times more goods and services than a person in India, because the prices of goods and services are also different in each country. For example, according to Numbeo, a website that compares the cost of living across countries, the average price of a loaf of bread in the United States is about $3.56, while the average price of a loaf of bread in India is $0.50

Just for an example — to show what PPP is clearly—let’s continue to use loaves of bread as a measure. Imagine that you are selling a software product for $100 per month in the United States. How many loaves of bread could an American customer buy with $100? About 28. How many loaves of bread could an Indian customer buy with $100? About 200

This means that your product is much more expensive for an Indian customer than for an American customer, in terms of their purchasing power. If you want to sell your product to both markets, you might want to consider adjusting your prices based on PPP.

For example, you could charge $100 per month in the United States, and $20 per month in India. This way, you would make your product more affordable and attractive to Indian customers, while still maintaining a reasonable profit margin. Of course, these are just hypothetical numbers, and you would need to do some research and calculations to find the optimal prices for each market.

PPP is not only a smart and effective way to increase your sales and revenue, but also a fair and ethical way to price your products or services. By using PPP, you are acknowledging and respecting the differences in income and living standards across countries, and making your products or services accessible to customers with varying purchasing power. This can help you build a positive brand image and reputation, and foster customer loyalty and satisfaction.

How to set up ParityVend with Stripe?

Setting up ParityVend with Stripe is easy and fast. You just need to follow these steps:

Step 1: Create a new project on ParityVend

From the ParityVend dashboard, click on the “new project +” button. This will take you through the process of creating a project. It only takes three steps to create a project:

  • Enter your website domain.
  • Select how you want the discount banner to look (only needed for No-Code).
  • Set discounts for different countries.

Enter your website domain

In this step, all you need to do is simply enter your website domain. Type in your website’s domain name.

Select the design

You can skip this step if you are using the API solution. Otherwise, enjoy choosing a banner design from ParityVend’s collection of 99 options! They have various styles, such as modern glass effects, colorful gradients, or classic borders with solid colors. You can preview your selected banner instantly with the convenient preview feature. You can also modify the banner text, add custom CSS, and adjust its position to make sure it fits your website perfectly.

Configure discounts

Save time with presets: ParityVend offers pre-made country group presets based on an amazing blend of economic theories and practical business experience. By default, a recommended preset is already applied, so you don’t need to do anything from scratch!

All you need to do is enter a discount percentage (like 10% off) and a coupon code for each country group where you would like to offer discounts. Visitors from those countries will see a banner on your website with the discount and code.

Step 2: Choose your integration path

After creating your project, you need to choose your integration path: No-Code or API. ParityVend will provide you with a tutorial for each option, guiding you through the process of integrating ParityVend with Stripe.

If you choose the No-Code option, you will need to copy and paste a snippet of code on your website. ParityVend will generate the code for you, and you just need to place it on the pages of your website where you want the banner to appear.

If you choose the API option, you will need to use the powerful ParityVend API to communicate with ParityVend’s servers and retrieve the pricing information for each visitor. ParityVend will provide you with the API documentation, examples, and support to help you build your integration.

Step 3: Place the code on your website

Simply add the integration code to the pages where you want the discount banner to appear, such as:

  • Pricing Pages: These present your product or service prices to potential customers. This is the most common ParityVend integration choice.
  • Landing Pages: These serve as the initial point of entry for visitors, often highlighting key offerings and value propositions. If your landing page includes pricing details, we recommend that you integrate ParityVend into it.
  • Main Pages: These are the pages that visitors see when they first visit your website, such as the home page, the “about” page, or the blog page. If your main pages include pricing details, we recommend that you integrate ParityVend into them.

Inserting the code

Once you’ve identified the target pages, insert your integration code within the <head> element of each page’s HTML structure. Specifically, insert it directly before the closing </head> tag.

Step 4: Create coupons in Stripe

Head over to the Stripe dashboard and create the coupon codes you have specified. For this, you need to follow these steps :

  1. In the Dashboard, open the Products page.
  2. Click “Coupons”.
  3. Click “New”.
  4. In the Create a coupon dialog, enter the coupon’s parameters.
  5. Click “Create coupon”.
