This is neat. I would strongly encourage you to avoid the mistake made by many people in your position and go and find customers for this NOW, at least to talk to them.

This will allow you to:

1. Verify that customers exist
2. Better understand their needs
3. Better understand how to price this when it is eventually ready

DO NOT wait until you launch, you should be having a constant conversation with your likely customers throughout your development process.

I elaborate on this approach in this reddit comment:

Thanks for the comment. I actually started doing this already, reached out to several people already who showed an early interest in using it in their business, and offered them to work closely with me to build what they really need!
