    The monthly option still commits you to 12 months

    It doesn't. You can cancel at any time by emailing support.

    You have to read the fine-print:
    Not saying that they won't honor you canceling after 14 days but, they don't have to.

    The commitment is still 12 months regardless of how you pay.

    Well I haven't had any problem when I cancelled and started again. Maybe @Andy can add some clarity.

    So you have to pay the $1,188 up front?

    No, The Total Committed price shows what you pay for 1 year. The link above clearly shows monthly membership and yearly.
    This gets confusing if you analyze too much because it's written in slight lawyer speak.
    If you cancel with 14 days of a monthly $99 dollar charge then your membership is canceled. That's why there's a monthly option.

    I'm currently on the monthly option and have thought about canceling for a few months when I didn't have a computer and chatted with support, so that's my experience.

    Hmm, I may wait until the event to decide what I want to do. I mean I have been developing games for over three years now with Unity. This just seems like I can make simpler games faster, which could also be helpful for a game design portfolio as well. Idk just thinking aloud right now trying to weigh my options with a limited budget lol.

    Thanks for the reply @Xoctrebla

    What happens when you exceed 12 months? Do you continue paying monthly? Or own the latest version released during the last month you paid?

    I didn't know that you can cancel whenever you want. That makes more sense though for the monthly subscription. I hope we get a new pricing scheme tomorrow as well. Some more competitive pricing would be very nice.

    I really think BB should do something similar to what Game Maker Studio does.
    You get the software for free and then you buy the exporting modules.
    For example a person that is only interested in publishing apps on the App Store only purchases the export module for that store, and it is a one time payment only. Monthly fees get expensive in the long run.. but this is just an idea.. let's wait until the event to see what other payment options the BB team has come up with.
    Cheers,

    I think the price will be cut down to half of it at least :) You'd better wait a few days.

    better is much lower price for example between $35 to $50 dollar month and much peoples purchased and compete with other platform for example unity $35 month all modules for export. I ´m master in marketing and this tips working (bestiality), 1 month free and next $35 a month 1 year suscription , sure ...sure that the bank accounts would exploit them

    If someone gets the monthly plan and decides to cancel his subscription in the first 14 days, can that person still use buildbox for the remaining of the month he payed for?
