Existing licenses will be grandfathered

SearchWP debuted in August 2013 and since then has grown quite a bit. Customer feedback has been terrific and contributed in a significant way to the refinements put in place and features added over the past year. The plugin itself has matured a ton and I’m quite happy with the progress as well. Now that SearchWP as (more-or-less) proven itself as something that will continue to undergo additional refinement, iteration, and improvement, it’s time to shift gears slightly.

SearchWP as a ‘platform’ has grown to a place I’m happy with. I will continue to make adjustments to the indexer and search algorithm but I also have had some feature requests that have piqued my interest but at the same time will require significant effort to make a reality. I want to continue putting effort into the code itself, but do not want that to adversely affect customer support. SearchWP is new enough that recruiting additional help for customer support would be a lengthy process with a steep learning curve. With the code only being available for about a year it’s tough to expect that someone other than me has the necessary knowledge to effectively provide support, so until that time comes I will continue with the existing level of customer support being an extremely high priority.

Pricing update as of October 1, 2014

Effective October 1, 2014 there will be a pricing update for SearchWP licenses. This update will not affect existing customer licenses, only licenses purchased October 1, 2014 forward. Renewal costs for licenses purchased before October 1, 2014 have been grandfathered to their original cost as outlined during purchase at that time. The new pricing structure is as follows:

Things to note:

  • Existing license costs will be grandfathered (e.g. renewal discounts based on the original price)
  • The Single Site license price will increase from $29 to $49
  • The Business license price will increase from $99 to $129
  • The Developer license price will remain the same at $249, but the 20 site limit has been lifted
  • License renewal discounts will increase to 40% off
  • All licenses will continue to be active for 1 calendar year from the purchase date
  • All extensions will continue to be available to all active license holders at no additional cost

I hope the details of this update have been made clear, but if anyone has any questions please feel free to contact me.

  • “SearchWP is hands down, the best Wordpress search plugin I have used. WP’s search, out of the box is rather limited. SearchWP turns the search feature into something intuitive and useful.”

  • “I like SearchWP because its intuitive to use. It has simple straight forward settings. Its fast and it works. The results are great, and I also recognize that other value-add plugins are integrating with SearchWP. I have received great support.”

  • “My developer recommended this plugin as I quickly found out that WooCommerce was not properly finding products when I would put in a search term! I took him up on his recommendation and haven’t looked back! This is a great plugin! Love it!!”
