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.

Changes 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.

I am keen to know what kind of extra benefits MQ offers to the buyers/subscribers to justify the price hike?

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.

Re the freelance, that is excellent news. At $30 I can actually bid on some of the simpler freelance jobs now.
