Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Its price is quite cheap. It is quite competitive. You just need to pay for the license. There are no additional costs."
  • "You pay as you go, which is a good thing. There is a monthly fee, and you can also pay annually. This flexibility makes the subscription easier and affordable for some of us. I prefer yearly pricing, which is also slightly cheaper than monthly pricing."
  • "It has some free features, but for some of the features, you need to pay. If you need more storage, then you need to pay. Its licensing probably is on a monthly basis."
  • "I am on a monthly subscription for the solution and I am somewhat satisfied with the pricing. However, the price could a bit better."
  • "There is a subscription-based pricing model and I pay monthly."
  • "We pay a monthly subscription fee."
  • "The solution is purchased on a subscription basis, and there are purchasing options. If you purchase annually there is a discount."
  • "A basic version of Dropbox is available for free with a paid subscription from Microsoft."
