Should I Outsource my Software work to an Agency??

Hello Everyone,

I have just started my Startup got my funding but the biggest challenge is Software development work. Should I hire a full-time Developer or should I outsource my work to a Software Development Agency?

I'm really not sure what should I do. Mostly I'm planning to outsource my entire Software work and make someone reliable our technology partner maybe. I have never ever outsourced before so I’m not sure how is it going to work.

Would need your help, so please tell me what should I do?

Need to sell software licenses, looking to outsource this part.

So basically I have a desktop app. There's a demo version, and a paid version.

Having the paid version means to buy a software key, introducing it in the software, which validates it against a server.

I could build this part but I don't really want to do it. Also all the billing, taxes and stuff… just too boring and time consuming.

I've seen Gumroad offers a service to manage it, but I'm based in the EU and it has no bank deposit to EU banks, only paypal (which is a problem), and I see no payment options for customers outside the west. VISA, Mastercad, the usual stuff.

I've contacted FastSpring, they didn't reply yet, but they are not transparent with pricing which puts me off a little.

Does anyone here experience with this? I really want to avoid setting up my own bloated ecommerce and spend time managing it. I want time for developing and marketing.

Forming an LLC to outsource

I have a business idea that involves clients that reside in US taken care of by employees of a firm that reside in a different country (A). The business will be completely online. The LLC I start in US will hire the firm in Country A to operate in States and earn in $ . Majority of the clients will be non-resident aliens on a visa and some might be resident aliens. What legal barriers in the US do I need to watch out for? What are the legalities of hiring a firm abroad? My apologies for the vagueness of it all; I am super new to all this.

Should I outsource to build the MVP of my app?

I am a solo founder and I am also a technical person. I am also able to do UI design. So I was thinking to outsource the MVP with the little code that I have written for my mobile app. I am also working on the UI design side of things. I want to bring my startup rapidly to the market. So I am curious to know whether this can be a good strategy or not. Would love to hear thoughts from all of you?

I'd appreciate all feedback and thoughts on this! Thank you all!

How does IT consultation work when you outsource to another country ?

I have an interest and been doing some research on outsourcing IT work to another country.

Customer / Company abc — hires my company ( an LLC ) by entering into consultant contract

for 5 Software Developer for 6 month of work at rate of X / day. My company LLC takes payment from Company abc. Then in another country ( India ) I start another company LLCindia and hire 5 software developer and assign these to Company abc.

Money flows from ABC -> my LLC -> LLCindia -> payroll for indian developer

1) Would I need professional insurance of omission and liability for my software developer ? I think yes but this crosses international boundaries and varies from country to country so it's difficult to say ?

I researched the cost which is 500 – 1k per year per developer USD

2) what would be an efficient way to avoid taxation and get my developers in india pay correctly?

ABC pays -> my LLC which pays -> LLC india -> payroll

if I hold money in my LLC I will pay tax income here, if I transfer all my earnings to LLC india,

my money will be in india and I will pay india corporate tax rate/ or whichever country I outsource to.

3) what is an efficient way to transfers money from one country to another via company ?

I could request payment to be wired directly to LLC india ? but I think most small company / medium size won't do international wires ? hassle to pay ?

I expect to lose % of transfer fee when I go from LLC -> LLC india due to crossing countries

4) do I even need an LLC in the US ? can my LLC india enter into contract here in the US ?

does anyone have any resource where I can read more or get more answers ?

or any insight from your experience would be helpful.

What is the most effective way to outsource customer fulfilment?

Currently I am working on a start-up with another person. Both of us are working part time on it.

We are now generating lots of customers which is great but this requires customer fulfilment which can all be done online but we get a lot of unnecessary customers calls with questions.

The other co-founder mans the phone two hours each day.

What is the best way to optimise the customer fulfilment process? What is the best path to outsourcing this lower level task? (Both sourcing the right contractors and training them to do the job well and self succinct?

Any insights or help would be appreciated!

  • Is Fiverr a good place to outsource something like this?

  • What are usually the price ranges?
