Hey, jumping in here about this. I know there has been a few threads about this so it’s a good time to explain a what is happening behind the scenes. We are indeed running a few experiments. As I explained in the free plan announcement, we’re still looking at ways to grow the company in a way that ensures we can become a standard for the web, and figuring out which pricing works best is very valuable. In the past, we used to do this without testing, and it’s definitely not a great way to do it… That’s why we decided to start running these tests. Most companies do this, but being as community-driven as we are, it can be noticed more frequently.
Effectively, we do show different plans/prices to some new users (when the price is different, the plans also are, even though they have the same name). Sometimes we also add a new plan; for instance, people have mentioned lately the idea of a cheap plan that would give access to some paid features, we’re testing this as well. The system is set up in a way that only new users, who have not visited our site before, may be seeing different things. That said, when people refer their clients, it can happen that the difference is noticed, and in such cases, please reach out to our team and we’ll move people out of the experiment.
Thank you for your support and understanding as we do this. I know this can be stressful but 1) we don’t run these with existing users 2) getting real data from our users is the best way to grow Bubble and make it successful.
