In the last 12 months, GeneratePress has undergone a lot of changes. Not only in code development but in investments made within the business. For example, we have:
- Made more code commits than in the entire lifetime of GeneratePress.
- Invested in additional customer support to sustain our best in class support.
- Contracted the exceptional design talents of Mike Oliver.
- Last but not least, released the awesome GenerateBlocks plugin.
And this is just the beginning. We have great plans to continue evolving GeneratePress and GenerateBlocks together as WordPress continues to change the way we build websites.
New Annual Pricing
We hear all the time that we should increase our pricing, and we feel now is the best time to do that.
- Our yearly GP Premium option is now $59/year.
- We’ve removed the renewal discount for new purchases.
- Affiliate commissions are now 30%.
- License keys are now capped at 500 activations for new purchases.
As a thank you for your continued support, our users who already owned a license prior to this price increase will not see any change to their license key renewals or activations. They will continue to receive the $49.95 price with the 40% renewal discount. The $59/year license with no renewal discounts only applies to new purchases.
Annual subscription vs lifetime licensing is a subject that splits many users’ opinions. Some users prefer annual renewals, as a recurring sales model implies developer sustainability. Whereas for some users, lifetime licenses mean a single investment that helps with their budgeting and their own businesses’ sustainability.
Our opinion, after much deliberation, is that such a license can offer benefits to the developers and their users if done correctly. Thanks to the new annual pricing we mentioned above, we’re now able to offer a lifetime license to those who want it while maintaining our long-term stability as a business. We believe that this move will strengthen GeneratePress moving forward, and it will allow us to reach more users who prefer a lifetime model.
- Our lifetime license is $249.
Upgrading to Lifetime
Any user who already owns an active license can upgrade to a lifetime license and we will automatically discount your original purchase price. If for example, you purchased an annual license for $49.95, you would receive a $49.95 discount on the lifetime license price. This can be done automatically directly inside your account at any time. Expired license keys need to be renewed before being eligible for an upgrade.
We believe that these changes will strengthen GeneratePress as we continue to grow our team, build new features/products, and offer the best WordPress support in the industry. Our roadmap is set and we couldn’t be more excited to continue improving the theme with you.
