The popularity and turnover of mql5.com paid services keeps growing,
which is undoubtedly a positive trend. Traders are willing to pay for
goods and services in the MQL5 Freelance, Market and Signals, and the
revenue of successful sellers, signal providers and application
developers is growing.
While supporting the operation of these
services, the MQL5.community payment system has been covering costs
associated with commissions on micro-transactions connected with
payments for the services. The current minimum price adjustment accounts
for the above costs.
From July 15th 2017,
the minimum price for a product offered through the Market, a Signal
subscription or a Freelance job will be raised to 30 USD.
will not affect current prices for existing Market products and Signal
subscriptions. The new minimum price will only be applied to newly
created or modified products and signals. The monthly rental fee
limitation in the Market and Virtual Hosting services remains at 10 USD. We still do not charge any fee for depositing funds to mql5.com accounts.
We hope that MQL5.community users are clear with the new pricing policy
and the reasons for price changes. Thank you for understanding.
This is a disaster, in my eyes. I'm absolutely against it.
You make it hard for the small man to start as subscriber. Newcomers want to try a signal with less money or don't have much. They might prefer to subscribe more than one signal to find the best that suits to them. You even forget that there even can be slippage problems, so the money is wasted, maybe.
Having this high price makes it hard for providers, too. They are forced to make even a better job, before getting something off their service. This will eliminate competition and scare off potential new signal providers.
Eventually, people will find other platforms to subscribe signals and this service will shrink in offers.
Great! The problems will be distributed. :)
I think it is a good decision, I never fancy the existing price.
