Pricing Changes
by Steve Testone on December 11th, 2014

We've got some really big and exciting changes happening in 2015, but we wanted to let you know about one of them ahead of time so that it doesn't catch you off guard. Starting in January, we will be rolling out a new pricing structure and will no longer be offering a free version of our service. Before I go any further, I want to assure our existing users that these changes will only affect new upgrades. In other words, any existing accounts you have will remain on their current pricing structure. For example, if you are currently paying $8/month, this is the price that you will continue to pay as long as the account remains active.
 

Why are we doing this?

There are many factors that went into making this decision, but one of the biggest ones is that we desire to provide more attention and resources to not only help our customers build professional websites, but to also achieve all of their online goals. To be honest, there are many free website builders out there. However, over time, we have found that most of our customers need and desire more than what a simple free website builder can offer. We believe that this new pricing structure will help us provide that for our customers.
 

How will this affect me?

Again, if you are currently a paying customer, you will remain at your current rate. However, if you are a new customer and haven't upgraded yet, you will need to do so soon if you want to lock your account in at the current lower rate. Also, if you are planning on creating more sites with SnapPages, now would be a good time to go ahead and create accounts for these sites and upgrade them to lock in the current pricing.

Although I'm bummed, I completely understand. You guys have done a ton of improvements since I first started with SnapPages. Can you tell us how much the minimal plan would be for those that have very few simple pages? Thank you.

While we have a good idea of what the new pricing structure will be, we have not yet finalized anything. We will send out an update in the next few weeks to let everyone know more details prior to making the change. Thanks for your understanding and support!

I have been waiting for a price increase, you guys deserve it!

I am excited to know even more options, services, tools, etc. will be coming down the pipeline that I can offer my clients through my developer account with you ~ it makes perfect sense to me and, in fact I encourage if it increases service levels ~ rock on!

Your service and product is excellent. I find it intuitive and great to work with. I had a new website completed and working as I wanted within about 4 days. Fully support extra charges it if it brings new and exciting tools etc. thanks for the good work - keep it up!

So that I am clear. Those who are already existing customers will be not affected by this change. Thank you for offering a great product and service. We are happy to be customers with SnapPages!

That's correct. This will currently only effect new accounts. We have a lot of users that create multiple accounts with us so we wanted to be sure everyone was informed.

Your service is fantastic and very well priced. Thank you for listening to your clients requests and if a price restructure helps us achieve these requests, I'm sure all of you customers will be behind you.

Can you clarify what happens to your current free accounts? Will those websites disappear?
Gert - December 17th, 2014 at 8:17 AM
So those on the "free" accounts will remain free? What is the cost to go Pro NOW?
Steve - December 17th, 2014 at 11:25 AM
To clarify, we don't currently have plans to shut down current active free accounts but we will no longer be supporting them in the new year. If at some point we do shut down the free accounts, we will notify everyone and give them time to make other arrangements or upgrade. We are notifying everyone now so that they can take advantage of our current $8/month or $80/year Pro pricing.

If users continue to have "free" websites, will Snappages continue to make improvements in the current Apps/features for those websites? I understand that support (e.g., email or online troubleshooting) will no longer be provided. Just wondering if the Apps will be "frozen" in time when you make the switch...

I support Snappages' decision. Hopefully, we will have a blog service as good as before, even much better. Thank you

SnapPages is awesome and very reasonable. Are you saying that existing customers can expect to keep the current pricing indefinitely? I have been thinking about bringing additional websites over to SnapPages before the pricing change, but would like to know if and when the price may increase for existing customers. Thanks! And I seriously love SnapPages.... :)
Steve - December 28th, 2014 at 5:25 PM
Currently we don't have plans to raise the price for existing customers so if you are planning on moving more over now is the time to do it!

You guys deserve it! May increase...
