|How would you estimate ARPU and/or ARPPU for Volume-Transaction based SaaS application.|
I did a simple calculations based on the great http://www.forentrepreneurs.com/saas-metrics/ however I'm missing a feeling about ARPU. ARPU is relatively simple for fixed-mounthly fees, but when users pay on demand, that's hard to estimate.
Any ideas on how to do it? Any estimates on ARPU of other volme-based services, e.g. Google App Engine or Amazon S3.
Interesting topic is ARPU distribution over user base, assuming all users are paying.... 80/20 rule there too?
