Got an idea for Dropbox? We want to hear it. Our team will review the top voted ideas, so share them here!
Hi, I find limited in the choices of subscription plans. Basic/free and Pro/110$
I'd gladly pay something like 25$ a year for 50GB and a 2 users family plan.
Considering iCloud have a 12$ plan for 20 GB and 48$ for 200GB, that seems reasonable..
Please consider creating a Dropbox basic plan of 1TB as I do not need 2TB but need more than 5.75GB.
i have an Indvidual Plan - Professional, but storage is almost full, and my suggestion is that in Indivdual plan Dropbox should give more storage like one drive at the same cost.
It could be good to have cheaper plans, for example: 500Gb for 2 euros/month or 1Tb for 4 euros/month. Even 250Gb for 1 euro. I think you would have much more people interested on Dropbox.
I love dropbox and had 48GB when I purchased a Samsung product a few years ago, regrettably that capacity is now gone. I need a bit more space and have referred as many people as I can think of but people now either have it or have an alternative.
I am likely going to have to switch to Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive since the Plus plan is too expensive and excessive for my personal and family use. At £96 per year compared to Google who are offering 100GB for £16, Microsoft 100GB for £24 and Apple where 50GB costs £9.50.
I read that Dropbox has 500Million users but only 14M pay for the service. Perhaps an affordable middle ground option would work. Money is tight right now due to COVID and watching the pennies will make the pounds look after themselves !
I have a 2TB plan expiring soon and i only need up to 100 GB maybe 200 GB. Google has plans for this size - but I cant find a simular option on DB. So - should I move my account to Google or do you have a plan that can work for me and stay with Dropbox.
Wow... so here we are in 2020, and they have gone the opposite direction of this thread by now staring at 2TB (more than I have in any one system at home). Where are the 10, 20, 50, 100, 200G and so on plans? I can't imagine how much potential income DropBox is losing here by not offering an affordable, reasonable size plan for the bulk of people who just want to upload and share some photos and videos with family and friends, who don't (and will NEVER) need storage in the TB range. I've used dropbox free for years and a mere 5g would actually serve me just fine.
Dakiraun, do not expect so many price plans because that is not a reasonable way to do this. Too many choices will give Dropbox workers too much trouble. They already have a lot of work and will have more later with safety and reports and complaints and etc. That is a customer service, which is time and finance consuming service. A lot more people need to pay for the services they are using, which are mostly free and of a reasonably good or good or great quality. There are also loads of free and poor quality services, but what to do about them all I do not know.I created a new topic/thread about Dropbox price plan for the management to think about with reasonable calculations, but did not receive even a single comment there from anyone at all.... It is below and worth reading.
I am in complete agreement and as a big fan of the Dropbox platform I would like to see more flexibility in plan offerings.
As someone who doesn't require storage for video or photo, the TB level plans are too much, yet the 2 GB plan is too little. But mainly, the limit on connected devices is the major problem.
Apple offers 50GB for $0.99 / month and 200 GB for $2.99 / month.
Yet Drop Box offers 2 GB free and upgrade plan is 2 TB for $11.99 / month.
Seems there is room in the middle for the large number of users who would like something in-between.
Is it not advantageous to DropBox to offer something like a 50GB plan for 0.99 / month, or some other option for 1.99 to 4.99 / month that has some extra storage AND no limit on device connectivity?
I was recently banned for a month for calling dropbox marketing people and CEOs "Aliens" in a (funny, I think, albeit somewhat scathing) poem. I do not understand why they keep this string open. Unless its to see if people are really interested in smaller plans?
But one answer I got before being banned, and while I was still trying to see things in a reasonable way, similar to the previous 3 commenters: That the services are what people pay for, not the storage.
IF everybody was actually using the 2TB storage, I would wager the prices would be somewhat higher. DB is not meant for non-personal streaming - only for storage - and who keeps their movies and music in DB, well, who under the age of 35 even keeps anything but photos? The business model is likely targeted towards collaborators, production storage and people offering downloads of smaller files, like books and music files. DB has this policy of fair traffic use. They can cut you off, if your files cause too much traffic.
Really, there are so many unclear things about their business model, that I have given up. I will continue to balance on the edge of my 9.5GB free "plan", and solve the problem of cloud storage - should it ever arise!
