Support » Plugin: ShortPixel Image Optimizer » Subscription Required For Real-World Usability

  • Their “Free” terminology implies that the free tier is a usable service. It only includes 150 images which were gobbled up in my home page alone.

    Hi @gegan249 ,
    thanks for taking the time to review our plugin!

    I understand that you were surprised that there were only 150 free image credits/month by default? I’m asking because we tried to make it clear on our plugin page, so our users know it beforehand, but maybe there is room for improvement.

    We offer a freemium service and for the big majority of our lovely users (roughly 90%), 150 images/month seem to be enough.

    Those who have bigger needs, help us pay for the server farm that is needed to optimize millions of images every day but also the hundreds hours of development, energy and customer support we put into creating and maintaining a business that major media outlets consider to be one of the best image optimization and compression plugins out there.

    @gegan249 Their model is clearly stated, nothing shady here. Oh, and they offer very affordable one-time payments…

    I have paid a on-time fee for some 10,000 images! Worth every penny… I always believe with the saying “spend money to make money”… I guess nothing is free in this world anymore. Long live ShortPixel 🙂
