Are Designers Stingy?

    I think the issue is that we perceive a fair price by what something similar costs rather than the value it provides or the cost of making it. Most Sketch plugins are free so when someone charges for one we perceive it as overpriced. If Principle, with all the same functionality was available as a Sketch plugin would we perceive it as overpriced at $129? The advantage of Sketch plugins over standalone apps is that they integrate into our existing workflow but developers will continue making standalone apps because they know they can't charge enough for a plugin to cover the cost of making it.
