What are the differences between Annual and Monthly subscription?
The big difference comes from commitment period - with the Annual you have to make an upfront payment for 12 months. The Monthly requires payment for the upcoming month.
Since, the Annual Subscribers are making a bigger commitment, they receive additional benefits:
- With Annual Subscription you will have unused quota rollover. The maximum number of rollover is equal to the quotas for three months. For example, with the Business plan you can transfer up to 108 downloads and use 36 of them for Signature collection.
- You receive additional partner discount for on-demand purchases on www.designconnected.com and www.cgconnected.com. The percentage depends on the specific plan.
- The price per month is a little bit lower than the Monthly Subscriptions. For the highest plan, Business, the difference is 10 EUR.
