I'm not sure about lifetime plan. Every time I see such option in a product I through they want to get a quick money. Lifetime plan doesn't guarantee anything... actually it can be an opposite.
Current subscription model guarantee that Raindrop will be alive as long as users use it every day.
I do not need quick money. I don't need quick growth.
So unfortunately lifetime plan is not be available anytime soon.
Rustem Mussabekov: all i want is neasted collection 32€ per year is a bit pricy just for this feature :(
Rustem Mussabekov: Yes you are probably correct. A very fair and logical attitude. You make prefect sense if the yearly fee is relatively low, and you can keep/have a wide user base.

Rustem Mussabekov: Sensical.
Rustem Mussabekov: In the long term it requires users to pay more. A slow leeching rather than a one-off payment. I also fail to see how a lifetime plan does not guarantee anything - at the least, it guarantees usage for the lifetime of the app.
Rustem Mussabekov: But we don't want money draining out our bank accounts every month
Virgile Arlaud: Nested collections are free now
You can have a separate premium life time license, which doesn’t include recurring cost such permanent library or 10gb of upload , but it only includes nested collections, duplicate finder , features which don’t have a recurring cost
Nishant Singh: permanent library is the reason I keep premium in the first place. Getting rid of the features is not the answer.
I'm completely against this. The development of the product would have to stop. I don't trust one time fee apps.
Developers need a constant revenue stream, that's a simple truth. And running the Raindrop backend and paying for storage also generates recurring costs. I hate subscriptions as much as anyone, but in this case, I think the 3 euro per month is more than justified.
I got a lifetime 1tb account with ice drive for 150 pounds. I think a lifetime for bookmarks should be somewhere between 100 to 150 pounds
A lifetime license for Raindrop should be something like $250-300 based on the yearly price. That works out to about $25-30 a year over 10 years. Users who purchase this license get a bit of a discount since they're basically investing in the developer. If the app goes on longer than 10 years, then they're also rewarded for their support.
Simple economic theory. The more packages available and ways to pay for it, the greater total revenue. I’m for the developer maximizing his personal interests. And I like choices.
Yes. Lifetime please!
