Pay for multiple years in advance

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Can I prepay for several years of Dropbox Plus? My account expries in March 2018, but I'd like to pay for three years all at once.

 

Thanks,

Hi! As far as I know you cannot pre pay consecutive years (in case of a yearly plan) for Dropbox subscription. More info: https://www.dropbox.com/help/billing/cost

As noted, we currently don't have Dropbox set up for multiple payments, but you can watch for license keys, such as the yearly promo that Dell runs, and purchase and redeem multiple keys.  Once entered, they should chain off of each other until they are all consumed, so if you had 3 license keys, you could go 3 years on those alone.

I know this is a bit late - but a Dropbox agent just told me you *CAN* pay for several years at once. 

 

*EDIT* nevermind - the agent just backtracked and said 1 year is the max

Could you elaborate further about license keys? Is Dell the only brand that does it?
I purchased a Samsung phone and got some extra space until it expired. Is that still the policy with dropbox and promo offers?
It has to be the most horrible marketing idea ever.

Thanks in advance!

The promo offer expiry is based upon whatever the company setting up the promo wants (i.e. Samsung were only willing to pay for two years).

The Dell ones are full years one and are reduced slightly in price from $99pa but not dramatically.

Dropbox has relationships with several companies, and as such, the offers will vary.  In reference to the Dell license keys, Dell has offered a reduced price on a 1 year subscription of Dropbox Plus near the Xmas holiday season for a few years now, and we find that some customers will purchase multiple times, activating the licenses to ensure that they get multiple years of service in sequence.  

There may be other vendors that offer this as well, but I don't know of any active promotions at the moment.
