Subscription Pricing

I would dearly love to be able to subscribe monthly.  But since I live on less than $500 a month, paying for a subscription a year in advance is just not possible for me to do.  I'm sure there are a lot of other people that would love to be able to access this site but the cost of billing only at one year intervals is just to prohibitive.

I realize that companies such as this don't want to deal with those of us that can't afford to pay such high prices but it's a shame because there is more money to be made if people can purchase what they can afford when they can afford it. 

But we're just considered to be beneath; to be at one's lowest status; worthless; less than, the very definition of a "pion".

Hi! The best way to get around this program is to go to Genealogy Libraries that have MyHeritage and Ancestry for FREE. Check out the LDS Mormon Family Centers on familysearch.org. Also do a search on Google for Genealogy library [your city] and that will give you a couple options. Most of the centers are free or cheap. For example, a day pass is $7 and the yearly membership is $60

Hi Jeannette,

Take a look on the following help document: Is it possible to pay for the upgrade in monthly payments?

http://www.myheritage.com/help-center#/path/951698251

By the way, not everything unlogical happens in bad faith.

Best regards

Thank you Remo but that doesn't address the issue of paying for just a regular monthly subscribtion.  That only offers a possible monthly payment for the Upgraded subscribtion.  You still have to pay in bulk for the basic one which a lot of us that are living on a severly fixed income can not do.

 

Thanks anyway,

Jeannette

Thank you Remo for at least acknowledging my concern but realistically speaking, I don't expect much, if anything, to come of it.

I'm right there with you. I'd subscribe in a heartbeat if there was a monthly option. As long as it's only an annual charge, I'll pass.

Thank you for lending your voice to this issue.  If only more people with the same concern would speak up maybe it would change.  But I doubt it, I'm sorry to say.   :(

A 12 month long subscription is the only option?

Come on...

Why not a month long subscription option?

$6 per month is $72 

Why not offer a monthly option for say 10 or 15 bucks

I might even pay 18 for 1 month

Sure you don't make $72 ... But how many people pay you $0 simply because they are only given the option of committing to 12 month long subscription and 12 monthly payments?

 

...If I were to put that $72 in a fund with an average rate of return of 10% , if it  compounds monthly I could have an added $10,000 later in life...

  ...$72 or a year subscription to this site..?  Hm... It just feels too expensive...

Yep, I agree.  

 I can't afford to pay annual prices but a monthly price that I could pay or not pay each month would be ideal for me and lots of others that live on a fixed income.  

We just don't count.

Jeannie

This is exactly my reason for not subscribing. I cannot afford such a large bill in one go. I am currently subscribing to Ancestry.com, who do support monthly billing. They are more expensive, but because of the monthly bill, affordable for me. I would like to try MyHeritage as I was gifted a DNA test with them and I feel a change of site might create new search options.
