hi there basically this small fee you speak of if it is reasonable i would pay now to help the developmet along. you should do preorders. however i suggest you consider making the price Very low as you may loose a customer base that has long relied on the free services you supply.

i would say no more than $15

if you put a preorder button on your website i would pay and i think many more will also preorder and that would help speed the project up

just my two cents

    Also from a “get my friends involved" stand point, it makes sense to me as well. Especially when I try to get my somewhat technical friends involved, it is much more appealing to say, “and you can pay anonymously if you so wish!”

    But even from a simple perspective, if it was my first experience with the project, I would go “eh? I have to pay for mail integration with a credit card? How does that make any sense?”

    For me, when a project allows me to pay with bitcoin, I feel better about using it. That, and open source code and I feel like there is a seal of approval that it’s safe to use.

    Where have you lived until now? Paying with a credit card is all I do. I do not touch paper/metal money at all. :-) (and I am not alone)

    Bitcoin users are a smaller niche (I have +/- $100 worth of it). As a business, I would not accept bitcoin as payment though. What is worth $15 today might be worth $0.15 tomorrow, or $150! Hard to do business like that.

    But I digress. All the best to the GPGTools (the company? They really need an about, and/or Impressum, if in Germany). Looking forward to the Yosemite release!

    Yah :) No need to start a flame war about bitcoin and its merits. It’s just something I look for and wanted to make sure it is something they continue to support.

    So the question is when can we install it?

    I think no more than 10$ is reasonable. Paying something at this point is definitely accaptable ...

    How much time are you wasting implementing license checking instead of just fixing the damn code to work with Yosemite?

    How much time are you wasting with being rude instead of doing something useful? Memorizing the pattern of wood chip wallpaper would have been more useful than this comment.

    The team put effort, time and money into this project and gave it for free until that wasn't possible any more. It was a gift and nothing you can demand, have a right to be provided with or you have any other rightful claim for. You may kindly ask, and that's about it. Oh, and in case your breeding was as bad as your manners are: this is what people call an "adequate rebuke". Something to memorize and do something useful, at last.

    I’m also antsy to get my hands on a beta, but Markus has a point; we need to be patient. Besides, I’d wager they are just busy with their other commitments (i.e. paid jobs they agreed to finish in a timely manner) at the moment.

    I use GPGmail every day. I was happy to donate and would be happy to pay to continue the development work. $10 or $15 would be good, Thanks for your great work.

    Everybody: thank you all for this great feedback. We still need to work out the details. The price will be in an affordable range. We do not want to scare away new users.

    There will be a trial version. And until then there will be a free beta for all to use.

    By now we are at GPG Suite beta 3:

    If you do have feedback regarding that, we would be happy to hear that. Please do open a new discussion in the "Beta Feedback" category.

    Closing this discussion.

    Looking forward to hearing form you!
