    This is not a promotion for Agenda, just a promotion of their pricing model.
    I strongly encourage Affinity to consider adopting the Agenda pricing model:
    Buying (Premium) includes:
    12 months of all new features Keep all of that “Forever" Includes all basic upgrades forever (ie it also keeps working through OS changes) After that year, pay again whenever Premium features are worth it to you. Or just stick with what you already have if you don't want new features. No lock-in to use what you already paid for. Thus, no subscription, but the incentives are perfect. Developers can just keep adding improvements and features without waiting for the next big version to ask again. They are incentivized to improve significantly continuously, or folks won't pay again. Modest pricing (like Affinity's) so low barrier to entry and same level to buy new updates. But you can wait 18 months, or two years (if you aren't enticed by new features) or never upgrade past where you bought in.    More details here: A ‘Cash Cow’ is on the Agenda   Again, this is really just me promoting the pricing model. Like Affinity Designer, it is also an Apple Design winner, so they don't need promoting.

    I'd love to see the books available as digital. This would allow for easy updates as features are changed/added, lower pricing, and near instant delivery.

    A sale for no reason is poor marketing, and probably justifies crankiness from loyal fans.
    In this case, a perfectly valid and strongly altruistic reason for the sale is given, making it sound perfectly reasonable. In this case, setting the price is easy: do what you like because it's motivated by generosity caused by world circumstances. So, good marketing, that.

    I also own all the Affinity apps since they came out, and I'm glad Affinity is making a gesture of help again, lowering prices. This is a great opportunity to recommend software and encourage you to try it out. Collaboration and work sharing is easier when there are more users of the same software

    I can understand all these perspectives, as we all might. Grumpy day? OK. Grumpy life? Even more OK. I'm appy to not be that way and sorry you are (I can have days like that too).
    For those who paid full price, thank you for being early adopters and full supporters. I agree, the price is a bargain; there are much lesser apps that want to rent software at higher prices for just a year.
    For those who benefit from the discount, or maybe wouldn't have bought it without the discount, good for you.
    Software is tricky; sell 1,000 or 10,000 much of the cost is the same.
    Selling anything is tricky, especially software. What's the right price?? You can never offer a discount or increase prices without many folks being ticked off.
    I just hope Serif folks do good with their riches, if they earn that much (surely they did well, or maybe even alive because of the App of the Year award).
    Regardless, no good reason to complain regardless what you paid; as I said, great price even at full price.
    Thanks Serif and bleeding edge beta testers too.

    Hi, quick question regard to the 50% and the 90 day trial.
    If I take out the 90 day trial on all three Mac apps today, will it still be 50% if I decide purchase during or at the end of my trial 90 days from now?
    Still currently with Adobe but keen to look at alternatives for best price.
    Thanks

    If you are tempted to reply to any negativity in this thread, please just post your own positive thoughts instead, or just step away. (It is directed at us and we do not need defending, thank you)
    This offer goes out to everyone who has not unsubscribed from our marketing offers, and is here to do 2 things:
    Encourage you to try the software that you have not yet bought, or encourage those around you to do so for 90 days. Without letting you know it was available you would not know to tell your friends. Encourage the purchase at a discount of something that you have not yet bought, for example the iPad versions (Serif cannot tell if you have purchased Affinity software from the Mac App Store or iPad store by looking at your Serif Account, as that sale is Apple's data and we cannot see it)

    So will all loyal customers -  been with Serif since PagePlus Release 1 in 1990 - be getting a refund? I await Affinity's generosity!

    In the email you received you have the option to opt-out of future emails (at the bottom)
    Just don't come back and complain when you miss out on something you wanted, like Version 2.0 at 50% off

    WOW! Who could have thought this this generous offer would meet with negativity? Affinity continues to set standards.

    Having paid full price for the apps as an early adopter I find late-comers getting it half price galling! No incentive to pay the full price in future just wait and you can have it discounted! Not really a good way to support existing long term loyal customers is it!
    So advertising to loyal customers that late-comers get it at a knock down price is hardly good promotion!

    Someone in your marketing department needs a promotion
     
    Please keep sending me emails like this. 50% off everything in the Affinity store is a great way to reward your customers. Especially so, during the pandemic.

    I don't know what the price was before, so either the price isn't accurate on the Mac AppStore, or the "** Special Offer.. **" needs to be removed?
