Softblades

These forms range from advertisements that you can see when you use the application until pay regarding use it. In Kapptus believe that virtue is between both models.

We begin by explaining part "free". As you will see on our website, the software modules that enables pay and / or collect are free of charge, i.e., if you are an enterprise, you have the possibility to charge your customers without commissions, and if you are an individual, not charge anything you when you pay something. We will call those modules "Point of Sale and Purchase".

Now we will see the "Premium" part. Usually this block is usually a whole, i.e., by a certain amount, you will access to all functionalities.
