Kajabi has introduced a Pay-What-You-Want option for your offers. 

You can set a minimum amount that you wish to receive for your offer, and customers are invited to pay over that amount if they choose.

Key Takeaways:

  • You can provide the option for customers to pay what they want for your offers
  • Use the feature to discover the right price point for your offers
  • You can use the Pay-What-You-Want feature with all Kajabi offers

What Is Kajabi Pay What You Want?

Kajabi Pay What You Want is a feature that allows customers to choose what they want to pay for your offer.

You set a minimum price for the offer. This can be $0 (free), or if you wish to charge a monetary amount, this can be any amount from $0.50 upwards (you cannot charge any amount between $0.01 – $0.49). 

This minimum amount is the price that will be displayed on the offer for the customer to see and is also what they are obligated to pay to access the offer. 

However, the customer also has the option of choosing to pay more if they want to. They simply input an amount higher than the minimum price and then go through the payment process.

What Are the Benefits of Pay-What-You-Want Offers?

Introducing a Pay-What-You-Want option to your offers is beneficial for a couple of reasons:

  • It allows you to always get the baseline price for your offer while simultaneously increasing your potential for extra revenue.
  • Accurately gauging pricing can be difficult. Pay What You Want lets you experiment and find the sweet spot of what customers are willing to pay.
  • This feature lets you set a minimum of what you want for the offer but also gives customers the opportunity to support you and tip you for your service.
