Re: Allow players to purchase premium for shorter than a yea

Postby KingRat on Sat Mar 10, 2012 8:33 am

Wow - you guys need to get some perspective!
$25 a year is already incredible value.
Very few websites could continue to operate offering such a inexpensive yearly membership.
Based on the number of players who play love it and then drop off after playing for a few months I can only assume offering smaller increments will have a very negative impact on their cash flow as 1) most people don't blink at spending $25 2) new players will always default to the smallest increment. That combination is terrible!
To be honest with you if it's difficult to scrape together $25 I would recommend getting a part time job rather than playing on your computer. YOU NEED IT!
The one idea I did see that may have merit is 5 years for $100.
I would even recommend a lifetime membership for $250.
Offer that up and you would have many people including myself jump at it!
my 2 cents.......

One other thing - I would gladly pay $50 per year for a platinum membership.
If there were enough perks you could prob get up to 25% of you active players to sign up for it.
Assuming 2000 active players = $12,500 a year.
Not sure if it's worth the investment but that's your call.
I also contribute by giving 2 years premium away in my tournaments.
Costs me $25 bucks a tourney but well worth it after all the usage I get out of this great site

Premium membership

Postby 445mrdavid on Tue Jul 16, 2013 10:51 am

Hello all,

I just have a small suggestion regarding premium membership. Instead of offering just a 12-month membership, why not offer smaller packages such as 1 month and 6 month memberships? I just feel that 12 months is too lengthy and that your net income will increase through the addition of smaller packages.

Ah, I didn't see that a similar topic was already created. My bad.

Edit: Anyways, here's how I think it should be done:
The cost is $25 for 12 months. Of course, you want people to purchase this package, so you make this the best deal. In that case, perhaps make a 6 month package worth $15, 3 month package worth $8, and 1 month package worth $3. In that case, people might buy the smaller packages, but those who are truly committed will buy the package with the best deal- the 12 month package.

I don't want to sound like I'm taking over the website ;) , but I just think this will be very beneficial towards the users and the administrator

Monthly or quarterly membership option

Postby smithallan on Mon Jan 13, 2014 11:07 pm

Specifics/Details:
  • Not sure if this has been mentioned previously, but I couldnt find it anywhere in the form, even after searching. I think it would be awesome if CC offered monthly and/or quarterly membership, for say, $5 a month or $10 a quarter, a quarter being either 90 days or 3 months.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • This would benefit the site by generating more revenue for the site, and allowing customers the full benefit of membership for a shorter period of time. This would be a great option for someone who has enjoyed freemium, but is still "on the fence" about signing up for a full year. Or it would be a great option for someone in my situation. My membership has ended, and I am in the middle of some premium only tourneys. I want to continue my membership, but cannot afford to until I get my tax return in a month or two. I don't want to lose my spot in the tourney, I'm doing fairly well. I would love the option of buying a month or 2 to get me through until I can afford to buy a full year's membership.
  • I realize some may try to abuse this, buy a month, and at the end of the month join a lot of games so that they have a month's worth of games to play, and buy another month when those games end, thereby only having to pay for every other month. That is why I suggest the price at $5 a month, those trying to beat the system would still end up paying a total of $30 a year, still a gain for the site. And I doubt the every other month trick would work well anyway, most games dont last that long.

The current payment options work fine. Yearly membership is cheaper than a night out. Cheaper than going to the cinema if you can't afford that then your simply being a cheapskate or just simply not interested which is fine. You get 4 games at a time and if you can't decide after that if you want to spend 25 dollars for a year then your not someone who will likely stay anyway. Working more on making it fun than payment options is they way forward. Or so I think

Indeed. This is precisely what would happen.

Some people, mostly newcommers don t want this type of commitment with a site they are not sure to like on the long term. For 1 or 3 month package you could limit the amount of games, like 20 simultaneously...
