The great pricing saga of Snipt.net continues. Now just $29 (one-time fee).

Hey there, I'll keep this short and sweet :)

Two months ago, we made Snipt.net accounts paid-only (after a 7-day free trial). What did we learn? Well, it didn't turn out so well, and we only converted a dozen accounts or so.

We've come to the realization that we're not providing enough value to warrant a subscription fee. So, starting today, we're ditching all subscription plans and replacing them with a single fee: $29. The same 7-day free trial still applies to new users, after which you'll need to pay the one-time $29 fee to continue using the app. You'll never be charged again after that.

We've made a bunch of pricing changes over the past year or so. Are we insane? Probably, but that's beside the point. We're trying to see if there's a profitable road forward, and our previous experiments have largely failed. Maybe this one will too, who knows.

tl;dr

Starting immediately, Snipt accounts will cost a one-time fee of $29. If you were on any paid plan previously, you owe us nothing and will never be charged again.

FAQ

I'm already a paid user, how does this affect me?

You are in. Paid in full. You will never be charged again. Even if you've only been a paid member for a month, you're all set.

I've paid much more than $29 over the years. Halp?

You are amazing, thanks for supporting us for so long. You obviously will never have to pay us another dime, and we'll happily refund you the difference, if you'd like. Just email [email protected] and we'll get those cash money dollars out to you.

Moving away from free accounts, and planning for the future.

Howdy, all. I have some news to share about the future of https://snipt.net/, and what that means for you.

I have decided to move away from free accounts on Snipt. I've tried a handful of revenue strategies with Snipt over the years, including running traditional ads, exclusive partnerships, and offering paid Pro accounts. None of them have generated enough revenue to sustain Snipt as a side-project, much less as a business proper. Running Snipt costs me time, money, and cognitive overhead.

In order for me to justify continuing to work on this project, I need to focus on core users - those who use Snipt professionally, and those who are most likely to find enough value in Snipt to pay for it.

Recently, I closed a handful of feature requests, many of which would be welcome additions to the core product, on the grounds that I am simply one person and cannot dedicate the time to work on Snipt when I have other profitable projects I should be focusing on (freelance or otherwise). I'd like to change that by making Snipt a profitable business so that I can dedicate the time necessary to make major improvements and upgrades to the product.

tl;dr

Starting May 1st, 2014, we will no longer offer free accounts on Snipt. New users will have a 7-day free-trial period, at which point you must upgrade to a paid account in order to continue using Snipt. Existing users will be asked to upgrade in order to create new Snipts on that date.

Snipt accounts will cost $5/month or $49/year.

FAQ

How much will Snipt accounts cost?

  • $5/month or $49/year.

I'm an existing user. What happens to my data?

  • Nothing. As an existing user, your snipts will remain intact and usable even if you decide not to upgrade. You can edit your existing snipts, delete, embed, etc. If you would like to create new Snipts, you'll need to upgrade to the paid plan.

I'm an existing Pro user. What happens to my subscription?

  • You'll remain on the existing $3/month Pro plan unless you request to be moved to the new plan.

Snipt is not worth $49/year.

  • Snipt is indeed not worth $49/year to every existing user. But it is worth $49/year to some users, and those are the folks who we'd like to partner with in the future to make this service better.

How can I delete my account?

  • You can use the chat system on Snipt to request that your account be deleted. Remember, though, you don't need to delete your account to avoid paying - your existing snipts will be forever editable; we'll only ask that you upgrade in order to create new snipts.

Can you suggest an alternative to Snipt?

Custom CSS in blog themes for Pro users.

If you're a Snipt Pro, you can now embed custom CSS styles for your blog themes. To enable this, create a Snipt with the title "CSS", set the Type to CSS, and mark it as Blog post.

The custom CSS will then be loaded into your blog theme, immediately.
