Announcing New Pricing Model at Plumrocket

At Plumrocket, we’re constantly evolving to provide better services and higher-quality products to our clients. Today, we’re excited to share a significant update that will enhance your experience with our Magento extensions and packages.

Starting January 10, 2024, we are introducing changes to our pricing model. Our Magento 2 extensions will now include free 1-year Update & Support services. This adds more value and creates ongoing opportunities for continuous improvements in developing and maintaining our products. With these enhanced opportunities, our clients will get a higher quality of the Magento 2 extensions, regular updates, and even better technical support.

Evolution in Response to Industry Trends

The eCommerce world is changing every day, bringing new opportunities and challenges. More and more companies are switching to the subscription model to enhance their abilities as well as customer experience with their products.

At Plumrocket, this change was an essential step in our evolution. It enables us to expand and deliver increased value to our clients. Simply put, this initiative grants us sustainable resources to consistently support and enhance our products.

New Pricing Model Overview

All clients purchasing extensions after January 10, 2024, receive a complimentary 1-year Support & Updates period from the date of purchase. This period will cover:

  • Access to the latest extension versions
  • New features, updates, and fixes
  • Dedicated technical support

After the support & updates period ends, you can continue using the extensions for free. Yet, access to new updates, fixes, and comprehensive support services will require the support & updates period renewal. However, you can extend or renew your support and updates period at any time.

No Subscriptions

We understand that automatic subscription charges may be burdensome, so we’ve listened to your feedback and made adjustments to ensure a smoother and more flexible approach.

We keep the one-time payment for our Magento extensions to avoid commitments and unexpected costs for our clients. This approach allows them the freedom to manually extend or renew the Updates & Support period at any time, offering greater flexibility and control over their purchases.

Support & Updates Period Costs

The Support & Updates period is a vital aspect of our commitment to providing continuous value and assistance to our clients. The costs for extending or renewing Support & Updates are calculated based on the product price. This approach allows us to maintain a fair system that reflects the value of the product. Let’s break down the support and updates period costs:

Extend Support
(while active)
Renew Support
(after expiration)
Initial Period (12 months) Included with the product purchase at no extra cost
12 months 50% of the product price 70% of the product price
24 months 90% of the product price
(save 10% on second year)
110% of the product price
(save 10% on second year)

Our Support & Updates period is designed to provide flexibility and cost-efficiency to our clients. Choosing a longer period or extending active support brings significant cost advantages, leading to greater long-term savings. Moreover, it ensures you always have up-to-date extensions and continuous support available.

Before & After: A Detailed Comparison

For even higher transparency, we introduce a comparison table that outlines the changes to help you understand the alterations in our support and updates offerings.

F.A.Q.

I have multiple extension licenses. How does the pricing model apply?

All our clients that have multiple licenses for one extension continue to pay only for one. You only need to renew or extend the support & updates period for one license, and access to updates will automatically extend to all additional licenses for the same product.

Does the new pricing model impact the prices of Magento extensions?

No, our pricing model adjustments only relate to the support and updates period included with the extensions, not the actual prices of the extensions.

Do I need to subscribe to automatically renew my support and updates?

Rest assured, there are no commitments or automatic annual subscription fees. You have the complete freedom to choose when to renew your support and updates period. Your satisfaction and convenience are our priorities.

How does extending or renewing the support and updates period work?

When the support and updates period ends, you can renew it at any time, whenever you need to download the latest extension version or access the dedicated support. However, you will enjoy an additional discount if you extend the support and updates before they expire.
