New Simpler Pricing

We’ve just rolled out a new pricing structure which we think is simpler and fairer than what we had before.  Instead of fixed tiers for certain amounts of members we now have one price based solely on the number of members in your groups.  It seemed unfair that previously if you went from 500 members to 501 members your costs would double from $80 to $160 per year!

$0.40 per member per year

So now you pay just $0.40 per member/per year whether you have 50 or 1000 members.  You can still pay per month at $0.04 per member/per month but paying annually you effectively get two months free for a saving of %15!  All features are always included whatever you’re paying so there’s no need to worry about Standard vs. Mega Deluxe Gold plans.

We do have a minimum paid group size of 25 members simply because with transaction fees it’s really not worth us charging less than $1 per month or $10 per year.  If you have any questions about billing or anything else then please get in touch.

Replying To Messages

After introducing the ability to compose new messages last month we’re pleased to announce that you can now reply to messages directly from within Gaggle Mail. We’ve rearranged the layout of the message popup to now show ‘Reply to Group’ and ‘Reply’ buttons.

 

Buttons showing replying to message

 

As you can imagine clicking ‘Reply to Group’ will open the message for editing and pre-select your group address as the recipient. Likewise the ‘Reply’ button will open a reply going to the original sender of the message.

The ability to reply to messages from within Gaggle Mail gives us the opportunity to fulfil a long term user request and that is the ability to reply to messages send in a daily digest. We now include a ‘Reply to Message’ button at the bottom of every message listed in digest emails. This now makes the Daily Digest feature a much more viable option when you want to remain part of the conversation but not get overwhelmed.

As with many features we build this came about from a user suggestion so if you have any ideas of how we can improve Gaggle Mail or make it work better for you then we’d love to hear them.
