    asking for money

    The following in red is confusing. What is it saying in the context?

    Many game companies are experimenting with a paymium business model where customers pay up front to buy the game and are then able to spend more on in-app purchases if they wish. It is not without risk---customers are more forgiving of something they got for free asking for money than something they have paid for upfront--- but it does shield a traditional business against making the painful decision to offer its core product for free.

    Are customers asking for money for something they got for free? It sounds strange.

    Thank you.

    Re: asking for money

    If people get something for free, they don't mind being asked for money at a later date.
    If people pay for something, they don't like being asked for more money at a later date.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
