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.
