Using the GWS has been a really fun hobby for the past year. I’ve created less than a dozen watch designs, but spend a lot of time on them. Granted, my designs are not masterpieces as some of the sellers are. I had been setting a base price of USD 1.00 for my designs, and sell a maybe a dozen of them. My latest design I submitted for free, and have over 1400 downloads in the first month! This ratio is probably a common pattern for buyers, maybe 1/10 of a percent will buy a watch, versus the 99 9/10 % who will download one which is free.
But I discovered also that I can set a lower price than USD 1.00, by starting the basic price with a leading zero (i.e., “0.25”). This newest submission of mine with the lower price is still in review, but I am curious what other sellers do for pricing strategies. I understand from the 2019 Santa Clara conference that Samsung is planning on changing some of the multiple market pricing settings, as some markets should have a lower price than the U.S. market’s equivalent value.
