Groups.io Raising Prices?


Christopher Stone
 

Hey Folks,

Does anyone know the straight scoop on Groups.io raising prices?



For groups upgraded after Monday, January 18th, 2021 at 9am Pacific Time, the pricing plans will be based on the number of members in the group. The base costs of the different existing plans are not changing. The change is that above a certain number of members, the per member pricing kicks in. Here is the run down:



Free
Up to 100 members
1GB storage
Single mailing list only




Premium

Starting at $20/month or $220/year
Up to 400 members, then $0.05/member/month or $0.55/member/year for each member above that
30GB storage
Subgroups
Collaboration Suite
Donations
Direct Add




I was going to move a group I manage here, but we can't afford their new pricing scheme.

I have to wonder what this means for Groups.io's future as well...

Best Regards,

Wow. I guess they're planning on making money on Yahoo's demise...

Sharks.

If you read the message, this does not start till 21 January. Move it now!

It means it will be operating on a good financial basis which bodes well for the future.

And the proper place to ask this question is groups.io managers forum, not here.

Hey Chris, not sure what you mean by "the straight scoop" since you seem to have the prices, but here is the post by the Groups.io site owner: https://beta.groups.io/g/main/topic/79024735

In the beginning I was very excited by both the AppleScript and JXA sub-groups, but have long since lost interest, since there is very little participation. I also don't really like the groups.io posting syntax.

I was going to move a group I manage here, but we can't afford their new pricing scheme.

If it were me I'd setup a Discourse.org site with an inexpensive host like bluehost.com.

Good luck.
