Leanpub used to offer a few things, which are not currently offered via our storefront:
- A $99 Flat Fee option for an individual book or course to have the Pro features.
- A $249 Lifetime Standard Plan
- A $349 Lifetime Pro Plan
We're still selling the $349 Lifetime Pro Plan via a secret process, documented only on this Help Center article! Here's how it works:
- Send $349 USD via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org (not @leanpub.com). (Ruboss is the company that created, owns and operates Leanpub.)
- Forward the PayPal receipt to email@example.com with a subject of Lifetime Pro Plan.
- We'll change your account to a Lifetime Pro Account, which is good for all the Pro features for 100 books or courses.
We do not sell the $99 flat fee option or the $249 Lifetime Standard Plan any more.
There are separate reasons for this:
- If you're going to be getting a Lifetime plan, we want you to have all the Pro features!
- If we sold Lifetime Standard Plans, we'd also have to have some upgrade process, and that would be a pain.
- We don't want to sell the $99 flat fee books and courses since we want to encourage authors to create lots of books and courses. The monthly plans and lifetime plans do this a lot better than a flat fee option does.
