How quickly does it pay off?

Very quickly! After only one working day you've probably spent more on software engineering wages than a standard license. It will certainly take more time than that to do packaging by hand over the lifetime of your project, and that's ignoring the opportunity cost of features you could have been adding instead.

(calculation: average hourly rate in the USA = $35 * 8 hour day * 2 for full cost loading = $560)

What's the definition of an app?

Conveyor defines an app as a stream of software updates distributed from a single repository/download site URL. Each app can have one GUI icon launcher and zero or more auxiliary command line launchers and thus the Conveyor definition should very closely match the definition of app used by end users. Each purchase grants three app licenses, therefore, you can distribute three independent streams of software updates. Please note that Conveyor doesn't have any notion of alpha/beta/canary channels. If you want a separate set of releases for beta users, that will count as a separate app.

Do I have to pay before starting to use the product?

No. Conveyor is currently free for everyone but even when that changes, you will be issued with a license key the moment you do the first build. You will then have 30 days to pay for that license key before it's deactivated. A deactivated / expired license doesn't affect any software distributed using it; it just means you won't be able to create new releases until you pay.
