FileBot Pricing Explained

  • $6 for a 1 year universal license that works for all platforms (including Mac / Windows / Linux / BSD / Solaris / etc)
  • $60 for a life-time universal license that works for all platforms (including Mac / Windows / Linux / BSD / Solaris / etc)
  • $40 on the Mac App Store for Mac only (due to Mac App Store limitations does not support certain features)
  • $40 on the Microsoft Store for Windows 10 only (not including Windows 7 / Windows Server / Windows 10 LTSB / etc)

:idea: Microsoft Store and Mac App Store purchases are always life-time purchases, and because these purchases are limited to one platform, the price is set to half of the universal life-time license ($30 plus 30% to account for the Microsoft Store / Mac App Store fee).

:idea: Microsoft Store and Mac App Store purchases are not interchangeable and cannot be converted to a universal life-time license.

Under the yearly license does Filebot keep working completely featured? Then its your option to pay to upgrade only?

The yearly license allows you to keep using FileBot for 1 year and you will have to purchase a new 1 year license if you want to keep using FileBot afterwards. Your license is not bound to any specific version of FileBot, hence "upgrade pricing" is not applicable here.

Is this discount available by direct purchase through Paddle? I'd like to avoid the Microsoft Store if I can. Thanks!

The life-time license is currently 20% OFF, at 48 USD instead of 60 USD.

The 1 year license is already as low as it gets to keep Paddle fees to a reasonable minimum. The screenshot in the OP doesn't show a discount, but the full price with taxes and fees deducted.

Has this discount ended or will it go through the end of the year?

I recommend the $6 for a 1 year option.

You guys are so full of shit. I bought FileBot on the Windows store some time ago for $20. Yesterday it just stops working. I open the store to find that I now need to REPURCHASE IT for a whole $40!! So those of us that bought it before your new (more aggressive) pricing plan, are just fucked?

I'm a professional software dev, I understand needing to be paid for your work, I REALLY do. But this is the SECOND bait-and-switch. It's just not honest. The app isn't even changing! You aren't bothering to develop any other software! You're just racking up the prices any time you can and then pretend like nothing has happened and that users are just whining.

What you "recommend" changes nothing. You were still dishonest. You still stole, only through legal means. You're still lazy and still refuse to bother expanding your business, instead milking customers for what they already paid.

Microsoft Store purchases are life-time purchases regardless at what price point you have purchased the product, and everybody who has purchased FileBot via the Microsoft Store / Apple App Store will get updates via the Microsoft Store / Apple App Store for now and the foreseeable future.

You DO NOT ever need to repurchase the same product on Windows Store / Apple App Store/ Google Store / etc (in fact, you can't purchase the same product twice, the Store doesn't let you) and you will always be able to re-install through the Store, as long as you log in with the same Microsoft / Apple / Google Account under which you have purchased the product.

The most likely explanation for your dismay is that you have purchased FileBot with one Microsoft Account, and then purchased it again with another Microsoft Account. If this is indeed the case, or in the very unlikely event that the Microsoft Store has indeed "forgotten" your purchase, then please contact Microsoft Support immediately so they can help you get things sorted out.
