We changed our subscription plans to make it much easier for new Network Creators to choose a plan and to align our pricing with Network Creator success. Previously, subscription plans were differentiated by features, storage and bandwidth, and support level. We frequently heard from prospective customers that they had a difficult time determining which plan was best for them. They were confused by the feature differences, had no way of estimating their future storage and bandwidth consumption, and were dissatisfied with feature limitations.
All of our new subscription plans (Ning Basic, Performance and Business) include the same core Ning feature set, so all Network Creators have the tools they need to succeed. The new plans are differentiated by community size (members and administrators) and service level. With the new subscription plans, Network Creators will only need to upgrade as their community grows.

Pierre, I just responded here.
So we will go up from 600 for pro to 1200 dollars for business! Thats kind of crazy right?
Will people, like me, who were grandfathered in to unlimited members on Pro when you last implemented new pricing plans still benefit from this?
We are still working out details about what happens when you upgrade - e.g. when you have a large number of members. We plan to provide you with advanced tools to decide which members you'd like to retain in your network when you upgrade Ning 3.0 (starting this summer). The simplest option is to retain all members, all content and all activity. We would also like to give you the ability to only retain subsets of your members - for example, only active members, or only members who've visited your network in the last 90 days.
What is exactly responsible for the 100% price increase?
have to remember who started NING Biachini and her partner. Biachini is brain child of Goldman sachs..should I say more?
I fall just over the basic at 2000 members, this sets up into the next level which is financially too much. A sliding scale would be nice.
Your limit of 2 moderators on the gateway plan is overly restrictive.
The one place in my work that I see left for using Ning networks is for professional association organizations. I won't be doing those anymore unless I know I can have a small team work with me to take it over when I transition out. In volunteer associations that is not likely to be a single person.
Paying 100% just to be able add a reasonable number of moderators isn't going to happen.
This would be a deal-breaker for whether to use Ning in those situations. I'd like to see 5 moderators in the basic plan.
The pricing is not in line with the $ / £ exchange rate.
$50 in today's money is £34 not £40.
Can you explain the disparity?
Hi SP, We determine our non-USD pricing by using the current foreign currency exchange rate on the date the pricing is published, in addition to a nominal amount to cover bank charges on currency exchange. We will regularly examine our non-USD pricing to adjust it as needed based on currency exchange rates (and that bank fee).
