    I am soon gonna release my e-book about psychology, but I haven't choose the price yet. I am gonna advertise it in UK, but because of the difference of the life standards of two countries, I need your help.

    1. Is the price of 5GBP high or not? Would you pay 5GBP via simple SMS if you like the subject?
    2. Is the price 1GBP low enough so anyone can pay?
    3. I am targeting for teenagers, but I am not sure how much money will they willing to pay for something they are interested it.

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. All people who give me right answers will get REP :)

    Not sure who your target market is (teenagers? buying a book on psychology hmm thats a new) but okay go for it... I think something around £1.99 - £4.99 depending on quality would do well.

    All the best man.

    Personally I would not buy a ebook for 5iverr if I could only see it on my phone... unless your targeting iphone users with a big ass screen...

    It all depends on the quality of the e-book. If it is good people can pay £5 and if it isn't that good then they wont even pay £1.

    I would sugggest that you start with £1 and based on the response you got, you can raise to upto £5.

    I dis-agree -

    It's easier to start with a high price then go down with some kind of sale... but to go from low to then high not something thats common.

    Thx to all answers :)

    Depending of time what I need to make my book done I am gonna choose price. I am targeting teenagers, but currently I cannot reveal anything more because I didn't made a single $ online. If I made 1k$ in first month, I am gonna share the method
    :)

    I just needed the info that people can afford to pay 5£ if they like the subject and the quality. In my country that is average 1/4 of the daily earning per one worker :/

    Depends on the product i think the pay by sms is a great idea since 99% of people here in the uk have mobiles and a load are on contract! I think that would work well compared to paypal.
    But all in all it just depends if teenages will need this book and its something new they can enjoy.

    I am very curious . . .


    Whatever gives you the notion that teenagers need or even want a book about psychology.
    I don't think this is a buzz niche that teenagers are scrambling to get their hands on.


    But you never know.


    Many years ago there was this guy who made bank selling Pet Rocks.
    He even had a booklet that instructed you on how to look after your Pet Rock
    . . . and teach it tricks.


    I guess you never can tell.


    If you are happy to go with psychology, then do it.

    So mostly people are on contact in UK? That's really good because the price can be higher and they can pay.

    Where can I find buzz niches in UK? I am not from that area so I don't know what are teenagers like there.

    @Edit:
    1. What do middle aged people like (30-45 y.o)? What are their hobbies?
    2. What do you people do in UK? Cricket, golf, listening to U2, making websites, playing games...?
