Managed Plugin Updates 2021 pricing change

Updated on June 2nd, 2021

As of May 17, 2021, Managed Plugin Updates will change to the new price of $8 per month, per site. That’s right — we’re removing the $25 first site fee and simplifying the pricing structure.

We will not be increasing prices for any existing Managed Plugin Updates customer subscriptions. If this new pricing will save you some hard-earned cash, we’re automatically updating your pricing and issuing a prorated refund for your latest billing cycle.

If you are billed annually for your subscription, you’ll receive a prorated refund for the difference in the remainder of your subscription by June 1st, 2021 and will see the new price reflected on your bill at your subscription renewal date.


How do I know if my price is changing?

Check your inbox for an email from Flywheel with “Managed Plugin Updates” in the subject line! We’ve sent you an email specifying if you’re receiving a prorated refund and lower price.

As a reminder, we will not be increasing prices for any existing Managed Plugin Updates customer subscriptions. Your price will either stay the same or you’ll see a price reduction soon.

We’re updating all current customer subscriptions this month to be reflected on your next billing cycle. If you have specific questions about your subscription or refund, you can contact [email protected].

Example 1
If your current price is lower than the new pricing, the good news is we’re honoring your legacy pricing for all your sites moving forward.

For example, if you’re paying $718/month for 100 sites ($25×1 site + $7×99 sites) with our legacy pricing, we’ll honor that price instead of increasing your price to $800/month ($8×100 sites). If you choose to purchase Managed Plugin Updates for additional sites, it will stay $7/mo/site.

Example 2
If your current price is higher than new pricing, you’ll have an updated price reflected within your next one to two billing cycles.

For example, if you’re currently paying $39/month for 3 sites ($25×1 site + $7×2 sites), we’ll update your price to $24/month ($8×3 sites). If you choose to purchase Managed Plugin Updates for additional sites, it will be billed at $8/mo/site.

Is there still a discount for annual subscriptions?

Yes! For existing Managed Plugin Updates customers, if you have an annual discount, that same discount will be reflected in your new price. For example, if you currently get one month free on your annual hosting plan, you’ll still get one month free on the annual Managed Plugin Updates subscription, too.

I have a specific question about my subscription. Who do I contact?

We’re happy to help! Just drop us a line at [email protected].
