Hey Eyal, awesome blog you've got here, I'm from NZ so has been even more interesting to me following along! I recently micro-acquired my first Shopify Saas as well and am working on that in a similar style to you at a smaller scale.

When you refer to pricing up and down, how do you approach/analyse this personally? My Shopify App currently has a single $29.99/month plan, and I'm leaning towards pricing down at free/$4.99 + % commission like you do with Batch (so people don't have as much fear of getting started) and pricing up to $49.99/$59.99 for extra functionality.

Would be interested though if you've got a better system of approaching this!

Congratulations on the acquisition and thanks for the excellent post (and the rest of your blog, worth every penny of the subscription), extremely instructive and inspiring!

One thing I was wondering, does doing these "cross-border" acquisitions (ie. acquiring an APAC product whilst being based in Canada) add any complexity to the acquisition / asset transfer process in your experience?

And on a related note - is there any operational pain points with regards to sales taxes (ie. end customers of the app being based in APAC) or is it all taken care of by shopify?
