business catalyst yearly plans to be discontinued

- Friday, April 22, 2016

In an effort to streamline their offering and allow more flexibility for their customer base, Adobe has announced that the yearly offering of Business Catalyst will be discontinued as of May 15th, 2016. With this move, the yearly pricing schedule will no longer be available for new sites, or as an upgrade from an existing monthly plan.

What does this change for existing plans?

Existing yearly and biyearly plans will carry on until the renewal date. Upon renewal, they will be switched to a monthly plan, while still carrying their discount (10% on yearly, 15% discount for existing bi-yearly plans). For example, if a customer is on a yearly plan with renewal due in October 2016, there will be no change until October 2016, and from October 2016 onward it will be billed monthly with the monthly price discounted with 10% (i.e., discounted with the yearly plan discount). In this way, our current customers get the price discount of the yearly plan while benefiting from the flexibility a monthly plan.

If you have any questions about this change please let us know.
