Wondering if the GrandNode team has considered offering an easy setup and hosting option for potential customers ?

Closed source applications that openly distribute their APIs for plugin creators are popular in North America. One major option in the space is bigcommerce. The platform attracts a lot of plugins attractive to potential customers based on the volume of customers who opt into easy to deply, easy to operate, easy to collect payment - ecommerce solutions (my assumption).

I wonder if the grandnode team has considered the possibility of making it painless for companies to get started using the platform by paying a recurring monthly fee for the grandnode team to host, secure, update and potentially offer perks (free addons) to different tiers of recurring monthly customers ?

Most businesses i deal with are not interested in the DIY setup of an ecommerce site - i take on the task as an "IT" guy for primarily due to personal reasons and vested interest in the company and the project. Just thought i would throw out the idea as a way of spurring some discussion.

I see a lot of talent in the teams working on nop and grandnode. I just wonder if there is a way of consolidating that talent into a platform that really takes off for both the open source tech saavy folks and those that want a more "user friendly" approach to selling products and services.

Hi Bill,

We have this point on our roadmap, but we are thinking what's the best way to manage it. I'm not able to tell anything more about that at this moment.
