$20 is quite reasonable for software at the scale of WHMCS. If you can't afford that, then you shouldn't be in business.
I'm more than happy with the price (that I can afford), new tiered pricing structure and my own business model thanks.

That's a little harsh.

XTM does not have to re-examine anything, he doesn't object to paying, and clearly in his post he mentioned that he is happy with the tier pay system. Also I don't think he meant to say that $20 is too much for his business, rather than if one company decided to drastically up their pricing, then he'd probably just look for an alternative solution, which there are a few.

Such increases are more painful to smaller operators on a smaller budget than large companies that have comfortable financials. Even a $20/month increase ($240 for the year) is the money they'd rather spend advertising than handing over to the same software that hasn't delivered 20-dollars a month worth of additional benefits.

Thanks, thats pretty much spot on. If WHMCS increased their prices just $20 we would definitely feel it as would many other new/small web hosts.

The price increase seems reasonable and i would be more than happy to pay as long as their support is up to par, which I have never had any issues with.

I uses a branded version ( now starter) and as being in the UK have to pay 20% VAT, so it works out just under $20 a month direct through WHMCS.

I have an un-managed 100GB VPS with a WHMCS licence that costs me $25.

so for me it is cheaper to get the licence from a reseller. i do however have a dev. licence with WHMCS

Well I used WHMCS and didn't liked...in fact it was mess in that time...every day patch..patch..bug.. ,I left 2 years ago...I really don't see reason for new pricing but I respect their choice...they probably made calculations and have own rerasons,but also they could easy finish like Host Bill..not likely but could
...I think they are aware that there is significant gap between them and their closest competition when it comes to addons..plugins...gateways..
I must admit I had hard time to find billing solution for myself and even when I find it..We have to make few plugins and two gateways by ourself ....
But now I'm sleeping well,I never could this with WHMCS....well it was two years ago ..maybe now WHMCS is more stable..probably it is.
If they are even close to Blesta when it comes stability than I would pay 20$ any time..would go probably with owned licence....

How would one be able to prove this?

Only way would be to de-ioncube their source.
Maybe packet sniff?

Could one elaborate on how?

i would not need to prove it, as they admit their system now operates by how many clients you have then it must be picking up some info to carry out these checks and that is all you would need to report such action to the authorities.
The authorities wold then have the powers to get them to disclose what info they collect

According to my View.
They made such Slab according to the Strength of WebHost.For new Web hosting providers , its Quite good & Affordable 15.95 USD monthly.

By the way , I am currently Using Old Owned license. They didnt changed my billing /Tenure.I just pay for the Upgrades.

The new billing is worked out on how many clients you have.

it is only $15.95 if you have under 250 clients, but like me in the UK i have to add 20% VAT to the $15.95, so it just comes to under $20.

I managed to get a 100GB unmanaged VPS with a WHMCS licence for $25 a month using a recurring discount code i found in WHT.

We have noticed the pricing increase for WHMCS over the past 6 years. It may be too late but we recommended to our customers to purchase owned licenses as it will pay off, as you are a grandfathered in service.

Until there is a good software that can replace WHMCS there nothing much we can do.

I believe that they do not have resellers providing WHMCS licenses anymore. This was removed 2 years ago, I believe.

I so wish that a more viable alternative to WHMCS would exist. But until then, we are stuck with it and they can increase prices as they wish.
