Buying Memberships (paid subscriptions)


What are memberships (paid subscriptions)?

Sellers can offer a monthly membership (paid subscription). They then can include items for their paying members for free. This means when you become a member (paid subscription) to a seller you can download the items that are marked with a green member badge for free.

Let's say you start a paid subscription to a seller for $7/month and the seller adds two items per month which he normally offers for a regular price of $10. When the seller includes those two items into his membership subscription then you can download both items with your monthly membership subscription and pay much less. image Sellers who offer a membership subscription are showing this badge on their profile.

This is a win-win situation, because when you support a seller it helps him/her to have more security and allows him to create more new products. A membership subscription offers you a lot more content for much less money. If you would need to buy each item seperately it would cost much more in almost all cases.
