The money you pay for a WageWare product depends upon your wage. The term WageWare refers to a software product whose price is measured in units of time - you pay what you earn during this specified time period.
For example, suppose that the price of a product is 20 minutes, i.e., your wage in 20 minutes. Lets say that your annual wage is $60,000 and you work 2000 hours a year; then the product costs you $10 (60,000 / 2,000 / 60 * 20).
To use a WageWare product you should first download and try it. Then, if you decide to continue using the product, you should calculate how much, approximately, it costs you, according to your gross wage, and pay that amount.
The author of a WageWare product determines all of the terms of product marketing. For example, the author may decide to charge an annual price of his/her product, or perhaps only a one-time fee. The author also decides on the length of the product's evaluation period, etc.
The WageWare way relies completely on the integrity of each user. It enables users to be honest in using a product and paying for it - no matter what their wage may be.
