Create your first product 🎛️

A product is a set of features that your business offers.

Each one of your products can have one or more pricings, so you can charge your users in a better way.

A pricing is a set of price logics to determine how much your customers should be charged.

Let's add logic to our charging process

The first thing you need to know is if you will charge a flat fee to your customers or if the charged amount depends on usage. For example, if your product is an API, you probably need to track usage.

In case you need to track usage, learn how to create a Meter 🌡️ first

Price Logics

Price logics are the way that each pricing computes the amount owed by subscribed customers. A pricing can have 1 or more price logics and the final price will be the sum of each of them.
