Info for sellers & landowners
In this section we will answer the most common questions about our business, pricing principles among many other things. We hope you will find what you are looking for. If not you can always contact us.
What is Johkai?
Johkai is a selling system and a community targeted for fishing and hunting. At Johkai you can sell licenses, services, products, events and time based items such as accommodation and renting equipment. For our users Johkai makes managing licenses, reporting and buying items more efficient and easy.
Johkai name comes from Sami language from the word Johka which means river. I comes from Internet. So this is how Johkai name was born.
Behind Johkai is a group of people whose background comes from design and coding applications for mobile and internet. The main reason for starting to develop our own software is the lack of decent software for fishing and hunting. The main applications in the license business has seen no development in the past 10 years. We are here to change this.
We are a group of salmon fishing hunters whose goal is to produce better services for fishing and hunting. We have 20 years of experience in software development and of course hunting and fishing. We are only focusing on these two sectors.
In our ideal world Johkai will change the future of license selling for customers and landowners. In the end this means that everyone in the business has to start developing their services. This is beneficial for customers and landowners.
Selling licenses at Johkai?
We are offering our clients a perfect solution for selling licenses. All our clients receive their own license shop, which can have normal shop products and licenses. You will have a perfect backend solution for managing all the details you want. The admin area is accessible and can be managed via mobile or desktop. If the management and administration of your sales sound scary you can get the full service from us. We will get you started.
We think we offer the best range of different options and functions for sellers. However it is possible to take off any of the functions you do not wan’t to have or even add some. For example some license areas prefer to sell their licenses without validation. So yes customising the service is always possible.
We do realise that in real life we need to do some adjustments to get your license sales in action. Small tweaks are free and we do not charge for customisations. However developing new features specially for one license area has to be agreed separately.

The right to change prices!
We try to make everything as transparent as we can. Therefore we have to say that we keep the right to change our pricing if we face unexpected rise of expenses. The new prices can only come effect after the agreement has expired. In practise this would mean upcoming seasons. Therefore license areas would have the opportunity to change a system if our prices are not competitive.
Just keep in mind that our goal is to offer the best license selling system with a reasonable and competitive price.
