Why isn’t Planner 5D’s full catalog free?
Many of you have no doubt noticed by now that most of Planner 5D’s full catalog must be paid for to be unlocked, and although there are more than 150 items in the free catalog, another 3000+ can be discovered after paying for the full version.
Now, I know what you're saying.. “Why do I have to pay to get access to the full catalog?” “Why not make it free?” We actually hear these questions a lot, and believe me.. We know how you feel. If we could have it our way, we would provide our entire catalog to all of you free of charge! Unfortunately, in order for us to provide you with the best interior design experience that we can, a premium catalog is necessary, and i’ll tell you exactly why that is..
Here at Planner 5D we hold ourselves to a high standard of excellence, and as such we have a great team of professional designers and programmers that work hard every day to ensure that our interior design tool is of the highest quality. That being said, good programmers and designers need to be paid, and if we wanted to pay our team and provide a free catalog, we would only have a couple of options:
One option would be to reduce our team of experienced programmers and designers by more than half, but we would have to compensate by adding commercials and Ads to our service, which doesn’t yield much profit in the first place, and let’s be honest… Nobody likes ads! (That’s exactly why we go rid of them!)
The other option would be to replace our catalog with a much smaller one made from a single manufacturer’s products, but part of what makes Planner 5D so unique is the variety and choice that you have with our unique catalog made from a blend of various manufacturer’s items and original designs.
With our premium catalog, we’re able to keep our professional team of designers and programmers, thus ensuring a quality interior design experience, while also staying completely ad free! And while we wish we could offer you the full experience free of charge, we know you value quality, just as much as we do!
So there it is.. In order for us to offer you the best experience that we can, a premium catalog is the best option.. But fear not! Our free version of Planner 5D comes with plenty of interior items for you to personalize your projects with, plus the option to make as many projects as you’d like! And if that’s not enough, there are plenty of affordable payment plans to unlock the full 3000+ item catalog. Our 3 main plans are: $9.99 for 1 month ($2.50 a week), $19.99 for a year (less than $1.70 a month), and $29.99 for life! (That’s a long time!)
