Good day 

I do not understand the reason for a 7% increase per annum over 8 of the next 10 years. 

Surely inflation in the markets where you operate is around 2%. So this increase is more than 3 times what should be reasonable. 

It is really tough to run an online business and run away expenses makes it all much more difficult. 

I suppose you want to take this online opportunity and do it with what the USA did with insulin. You know insulin was donated by its founder, so except for the production cost there should be no exceptional markups on the cost of the product. 

Like with insulin, if you get on this wagon, in 30 years only the rich will be able to own or run an online business. 

Surely the internet was meant for everybody. Absolutely cover your costs, but please don't destroy small businesses with greedy increases.
