Bundling models

In line with Apigate's 3 pillar "Reach & Acquire | Monetize | Retain & Grow" strategy, the following are examples of apiFlex bundling models:

Reach & Acquire

Digital merchants are able to reach and acquire customers using an MNOs mass market & partner channels - such as retail outlets, dealer shops mobile self-care apps and digital lifestyle portals

HOW IT WORKS

Basic content is associated with mass market daily data packs

Merchants offer "try before you buy" content to an extended consumer base at zero cost

Subscriber is presented with basic content on offer and selects to try

Subscriber chooses to use content for free or register and subscribe

Monetize

User subscribes to data pack

HOW IT WORKS

Focused on an MNO's monthly data packs.

Content can be matched to market relevance and customer demographic target segments for mass appeal

Revenue is earned when the subscriber downloads, registers for and consumes the premium content

HOW IT WORKS

Digital Merchant purchases bulk data at a discounted price

Digital Merchant chooses a 'chunk size' to be 'gifted' to each subscriber for downloading the content (eg 500MB, 1GB)

Subscriber clicks on and downloads content

The 'gifted' (free) data chunk is provisioned for the subscriber to use

Supports a wide range of promotional offers and allows merchants to define how each offer can be accessed by a target segment. Activations are done via API calls and SMS

Single use

For any content offered free of charge on the basis of a single, one-time download - with or without the capability of in-app purchases

Time-based

For any one-time usage offer that has a time-based duration (validity) associated with it. Upon expiry Subscribers can then choose to pay for subsequent purchases

Subscription-based

For any (initially free) subscription offer to a customer, who can then be converted to a paying customer and charged accordingly

Apigate works exclusively with MNO partners to open up specific outreach channels such as mobile self-care apps and digital lifestyle portals whereby banners with direct links to digital merchant content are presented to subscribers
