One of the problems I am trying to solve is how to cover the subscription fee we have to pay Matterport.

After a certain amount of time the profit from the job will be absorbed by the cost of hosting. Have you done anything like licensing/ hosting for a set amount of time with an option to renew?

I charge a yearly hosting fee to help absorb those costs. To me, the yearly hosting charge is a cost of doing business - but I do try and offset it with yearly hosting charges for tours that will stay up indefinitely or longer than a year. I also charge that upfront. No monthly - just yearly. Much easier for me anyway.

I agree with it being a cost of doing business but definitely feel, like images and videos, the licensing is in addition to the production. Licensing is based on how many people will view the work and should be priced accordingly while hosting is merely covering a cost. Actually, both should be charged or at-least hosting mentioned as a part of production.

By not listing a yearly hosting fee your are selling yourself short. If the client wants to use the model for 3 years then they would pay for production including hosting for a set amount, licensing and 2 years of additional hosting. If you don't itemize the hosting upfront adding additional hosting could be perceived as being greedy by the client because it was never mentioned before but now it is being brought up.

All licensing should have a limit. Especially since we have no control over the storage of the content. Suppose MP went out of business or lost data. As a client I'd want my money back.
