Can we have plans that are smaller than 1 TB?

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..

Dropbox started with a good product. They still have a good product but they have lots of competition. In most businesses, that mean a drop in prices all around. Eventually Dropbox will have to come up with a better plan. Otherwise, it risks lost business, little new busines, and a bad reputation.

I have just started switching the whole family to Amazon drive for backups and Google drive for daily Cloud usage. I was really hoping there would be a promotion from Dropbox or new package of sorts. I am willing to pay 100 - 150 EUR per year but with option to share that 1TB over a whole family of users - no one really needs 1TB and I guess this was Dropboxes plan all along - to be able to say that they are cheapest in the terms of ratio of GB per $ and count on users not using that 1TB but lets say 100 - 200GB. 

So, in my case (we are now on the free plans with all sorts of promotion stuff) they will not be loosing because of us switching from 1TB plan to 100GB plan but loosing us alltogether. I would say thats not good for business. Not to mention how many people pay for filling up the referals.

I would happily pay for the space i need rather than overpay for what i dont need.

I can't believe we are so few, the ones that are still using the free plan but wouldn't have problem with paying $40 or $50 a year for a 100 GB plan, because we really don't need the 1tb and are right now paying for plans in another company.

So I guess we can only keep posting comments about it in the forum.

I would gladly pay half the price of the 1TB plan to get 1/10th of the size.

Hi Team at DB,

 

I have been using drobox for a decade now and introduced 100's of my clients to enroll for DB account.

In past 2 years DB has made a lot of changes to their account and framework which is a good sign beating their competitors.

I am finding a difficulty here like i dont need 1TB space then why should i pay that much price, if you can customize a better and lower plan along with decreasing the Price accordingly with space, you can be at a win-win solution.

Such as may start plan at for individuals at 250GB/500GB/750GB...and you already have 1000GB

Kindly discuss with your management and see if you can help and introduce such potential plans to help small individuals to enroll for paid dropbox account.

That way people smiliar to my situation will definitely opt for paid plan and you can beat your competitors.

Look forward to your response.

Thanks
Saquib

This has been discussed to death on these forums. Dropbox has tried smaller plans in the past, many times, without success. Dropbox has settled on the 1TB plans and you simply use what you need.

For more information and further discussion, I'd suggest you search the forums (the Share an Idea section would be best) and join the already existing conversations.
