Why We Have a 3 Month Minimum on Subscriptions

Some people have asked us why we have a 3 month minimum on subscriptions. Our intentions are not to lock you in, but to have fair pricing in our subscription model.

Here’s how it works:

  • Our regular image (single purchase) price is $8
  • Our price per image included in a subscription is $3.2

The reason why the price of an image included in a subscription price is less than half is because we can make up for the loss over a few months of your subscription, so it evens out. It’s the only way we can provide the subscription pricing as low as it is advertised.

Using the subscription as a bulk package is not correct. For those who just wanted to get a cheaper price by buying in bulk but don’t want to renew it, we have a separate option for bulk purchases that you can use. In it, you can build a download package that does not renew each month.

If everyone used the subscription for one month only and then canceled, we wouldn’t be able to sustain our pricing model. That’s why we also offer the bulk packages.

We hope you understand that this not some tactic to try to get you to do something that you don’t want. We really do believe that we have made available many different options to fit your needs. We hope you understand. If you have a unique case, please email us directly to resolve it.
