Kachingle is a monetization, distribution, discovery, billing and co-marketing platform for apps and content. Kachingle utilizes network effect and allows users to customize their own bundles or select from pre-built bundles. Unique to Kachingle is the ability for partners to co-market with one another with just a simple API call. This, and our exclusive usage-based revenue sharing technology built on our proven micro-payment engine make Kachingle the monetization platform of the future.
Kachingle - Different From Other App Revenue Models
Many app vendors and content providers are not converting as many free and trial users to paying customers as they would like. App revenue models like trial-pay, advertising, in-app upgrades, and Freemium just don't work for most. So what makes Kachingle so different?
The Kachingle Platform bundles complementary apps and content at irresistible price points, enabling app and content vendors to co-market their offerings to the aggregated user bases of all Kachingle partners. Consequently, vendors see increases in conversions, large increases in paying user bases, and revenue uplift which we can demonstrate with a very robust financial model.
What makes this all work is our patent-pending, usage-based micropayment engine that has been live for two years in the donation space. This engine, powered by PayPal for the actual disbursement of revenues to vendors, allows us to distribute subscriber fees to Kachingle partners based on subscriber usage, making it fair and compelling to vendor and user alike. Our financial system is so efficient we can effectively process distributions of just a single penny and in 24 currencies!
Below is a brief overview of the key 4 elements that make Kachingle so efficient, compelling, and easy to use. For details, see our FAQ section.

Kachingle has developed a sophisticated financial modeling tool that shows just how effective Kachingle can be for your situation if your company has a Freemium offering. The model has been independently validated by experts at the University of Missouri. It uses your real values (e.g. net price, user base, premium conversion, etc.) and predicts the return you could realize by joining Kachingle.

The 4 Key Elements to Kachingle
As the number of vendor partners on the Kachingle Platform increases, the pool of users for each vendor to market to grows, thus reducing reach and acquisition costs.
And for subscribers, each vendor in the pool adds more value to their subscription, and allows them to discover apps they may never have otherwise would have been exposed to.
At the core of Kachingle is our powerful, robust, and proven usage-based micropayment engine, coupled on the payment delivery side to PayPal's APIs. Our micropayment engine can efficiently manage transactions ranging from a single penny to millions of dollars. We manage all financial transaction fees for vendors and subscribers alike, thus insuring there are no hidden fees, and no hassle.
