$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....
