Is there a way to build a Salesforce App and sell it to the general public without the users needing to be Salesforce users? (Except they'd be users of the app I'm selling.)
Or, I assume the users would still need a standard SF license? If so, how would I price the app to make a profit, per user based on what the base per user license cost is? For example, the cheapest Lightning license (Lightning Platform Starter) is $25 per user per month - and only allows access to 10 custom objects. If I build an app within this limit and want to sell access to the app, it appears I'd have to price it at more than $25 per user per month to make any profit. Is this the only type of option?
If it is, why doesn't Salesforce create a new app development & pricing option that allows apps to be built in Salesforce to be used by users that are not traditional Salesforce users, in fact, they'd have no idea the app was a Salesforce app.
