What happened to import.io will always be Free for Life?


#1

Before the import.io pricing was Free for Life, it is now free but with limitation of 10,000 to 50,000 queries, which is NOT FREE thing ultimately.
I was thinking that Import.io manages Corporate stuff seperate, but now putting a limit for free users is not good, when you change your Policy like this. I know you will say company holds the right to change the policy anytime without notifying and I have agreed to it.

I love your services and will always be grateful for it, but it was a disappointment for me.

I hope you will not block my account or services after my feedback.

Hi @itsWrongGuy,

No of course you wont be blocked for voicing your opinion - it is a valid one! I can understand where you’re coming from of course, but unfortunately business decisions are sometimes made that don’t please everyone.

There is still of course a free version, and we are working really hard to make it an even better service that will provide value for everyone.

I hope you will you will enjoy the new features that we have coming soon!

Alex

Well not anymore. Free versions totally removed, “Magic” on homepage now locked down to a handful of website and a minimum commitment of $$$$hundreds per month for a measly 50k URLS.

Really poor offering now, I think alot of people will be shifting to cheaper comparable services, certainly all academics.

Things change, its sad, bye bye to your business model…
