The purpose of module based pricing is to fairly allocate the price/cost of a website and the website’s functionality. There is a myth in the WordPress market. WordPress can do almost everything. The truth is the basic WordPress installation with no plug-ins will result in a site that can have a great design. It can look great and be responsive – look great on phones. It can display static pages – pages that don’t have content like a calendar that changes. It can display blog pages that contain blog posts and allow commenting. That is it. This is the site that you can get on a consumer hosting service like web.com for $29.00 per month.
If you need more functionality like presenting ads on the site from an advertising server or e-commerce or charging for access to content or a host of other features, plug-ins must be added. There are literally tens of thousands of plug-ins for WordPress. Like so many other gold rush emerging markets, many of the plug-ins don’t work and most of the plug-ins don’t integrate. Not integrating is when adding one plug-in breaks another plug-in. Or adding a plug-in causes page display time to drop from two seconds to fifteen seconds.
