On January 15th, 2023, permanent plugin licenses are going to cease to be available from my plugin store. Any existing permanent license will be perfectly valid, and will remain unchanged, but I will no longer be offering permanent licenses for sale.
This is something that’s been coming for a long time. I could probably afford to sell permanent licenses if I quadrupled the price – but that also makes any kind of budgeting almost impossible. Selling permanent licenses is not really sustainable.
I’ll be revamping pricing of licenses moving forward to be based on the more common metric of number of sites it’ll be installed on.
