Subscribe to RSS feed Upcoming Pricing Changes in 2019

Updated: 15 Nov 2018 By evankoh posted on 15 Nov 2018  -  1,910 views


Note: If you are already Friend of StocksCafe (when your subscription ends), price changes does not affect you. It will always be fixed at the rate (your personalized rate) when you first contributed :)

Last year, when I announced the price change and switch to contribution mode in mid December, several users feedbacked that the announcement was too last minute and they missed it because they were away for the December holidays and learnt about it too late. Thus this year, I decided to announce it earlier.

Reasons for Pricing Changes
Honestly, there are two main factors for this:
1) As StocksCafe continues to grow in terms of supported exchanges and features, spending on infrastructure and data licensing is also growing.

2) To encourage users to contribute now by having a time-limited offer :)

Contribute Now
From 1 Jan 2019, I intend to change the pricing of StocksCafe. Of course, I will not go crazy and increase it by a large amount but do contribute now to lock in the early bird prices!

To encourage users to contribute now, the cost of becoming a Friend of StocksCafe for a year for those who donate on or before 31 Dec 2018 will always stay at SGD39 yearly (or SGD3.9 monthly). Of course, for existing users, your price has already been locked in depending on when your first contribution was.

If StocksCafe has been useful to you in your investment journey, I hope you would consider contributing to StocksCafe so that it can continue to improve and provide more value to you.

Happy investing!

julietanpy - Hi Evan, is there a differential rate if we subscribe 7 years in advance now? My current plan is SGD 39 for a year, as I was testing out the platform, and I have just signed up about 1 month ago.

evankoh - @ceciltan Yes! Your rate will still be SGD30 in Feb 2019.

@julietanpy If you subscribe 7 years now, it will start after your current one ends on Nov 2019. Means it will be till Nov 2026.

A Quick Update
It has been a week since the survey. Thank you to all who responded to the survey. The survey results are quite open to interpretation. If we simply look at the absolute number of people willing to pay to keep SGXcafe going, the logical choice would be to close SGXcafe as it is far from sufficient. However, if we look at the percentage of people willing to pay, it is quite encouraging as 42% of the ...

How to retire?
Many people that I know invest not to be rich, but simply hoping to be able to retire one day. Likewise, my main goal of investment is to retire. Naturally, I am curious to know how I will be able to retire. More specifically, how much do I need to invest annually? What rate of return do I need? When I can retire? To answer these questions, I decided to build a simple simulator. Basically, it assumes ...
