Premier Subscription Explanation
October 5, 2015 at 11:51:07 AM
We've had a few questions regarding how the subscriptions work for the Premier features.  When we set things up we kept in mind how we would like to be treated.  So here's how it all works.

First, the majority of the freePatternWizard is and will always be totally free.  And I'll continue to add new free features, enhance those already in place, and support them.  We have a list of free features coming but don't publicize them in advance.

Regarding the subscriptions, we have begin charging a nominal amount for some more enhanced features.  These features are generally those that cost us in the way of added CPU time and additional memory requirements.  To offset this we have created the Premium area.

We tried to come up with a crazy-low amount (in our opinion) to charge.  We call them introductory prices because they might go up in the future but there are no plans right now.  Again we spent a long time thinking about the best way we would like to be treated.

For now, we charge by the year.  Only $4.99 per feature for a whole year access.  We realize that some features will not be of interest.  If you're a knitter, you might not be interested in beading enhanced features.  And vice versa.  So we just went the à la carte way so you can pick those Premium features and pay $4.99 each.  BUT, we put in a cap, so at this time you'll never pay more than $19.95.  If you want every feature that's available today, next week, next month, for the entire year, you can pay $19.95 and automatically be subscribed to everything for the whole year.

On top of that, but just to be fair, if you subscribe to one or more $4.99 features today, and want to change to a subscription of all features, and do it within a month, you'll get credit for what you've already spent.

Again, the charges are not because we want to nickel and dime people, but more to cover added server expenses for adding more advanced features.

For those interested, the subscription page is here, has information about each feature, and will process your payments through PayPal.  Once payment is made, the system automatically sets you up so you immediately have access to the new feature(s) with no waiting.  You'll also get approved to post comments, questions and suggestions in the Community Premier area.

If you have questions, feel free to ask here.  Thanks, and have fun!
