    i think subscribe2 is a great product (plugin) and i was looking at buying the html version to extend the abilities i needed. but after looking at the $40 price tag i think i'll pay someone else for their services.

    i'd happily pay $20, but as the upgrade goes through another site. i think i'd be paying service charged and not complimenting the author for his ability!!

    set up paypal and get rid of the inflated price please.

    Joz!

    mrjozzi,

    The paid version has always been $40. I used to accept PayPal and deal with sales myself but it took up far too much time hence the move to the WPPlugins site.

    I'm sorry you don't feel the extended HTML version is worth $40.

    Hi MattyRob,

    I came across this post trying to look for a way to contact you.
    So I use this post to make my point as well.

    Having a non commercial blog I'm careful where to spend my euros. I think that Subscribe2 is a terrific product. But for my needs I want to use the extended HTML version. I want to be able to add images to my emails. So Subscribe2 with HTML it must be.

    I think that $40 for such a product is a good investment. The thing that holds me back is the support charges pro month. I know, I know, the product and support needs to be funded. And you probably spend a lot of time supporting this product.

    But I don't like this kind of subscriptions. I prefer to pay a bit more, or pay for a support case. I don't mind to pay an upgrade once in a while. But subscriptions, no. So the end result is the same as Joz... and that is a pity.

    @Jan,

    The support package is not compulsory and can be cancelled at any time. However, if you do this you'd have to pay for any future releases again at full price.

    As you say, I put a lot of time into developing and supporting the plugin - a lot of this is done for free. However, I personally don't want an HTML version because I believe that email was never intended to take HTML code - it's not standards complaint, it's all to common in spam and junk mail and can be used to deliver viruses in ways beyond what plaintext could do.

    So, for those reasons I make a charge for the HTML code. It's that same charge I've made for the last 4 years so changing it now would be disrespectful to all those who have already paid.
