BVSTools is announcing a small pricing increase on most software subscription licenses for 2020.
The price will increase from .82 a day to .99 a day for most titles. This will put the yearly price of each title to just a touch above $360 a year.
We will also be charging for the base products for GreenTools for Google Apps (G4G) and GreenTools for Microsoft Apps (G4MS) because of the added security, features, requirements from the API providers to provide thorough proof of security as well as the new availability to use the base products to create your own applications around them. Any customer using these will receive free keys for the base products through their licenses of 2020 and be charged after that time runs out.
This price increase is because of many factors, including the increased cost of doing business, but one of the main reasons is the latest Wayfair Supreme Court case relating to state sales tax and out of state vendors.
This change has added an unprecedented amount of stress on most small businesses, including BVSTools. The time and cost involved in researching the states is proving to be very exhaustive and resource intensive (even for the accountants we have hired) as the laws are confusing, and constantly changing state to state.
While this price increase is small, it will help with the new expenditures we, as well as other small businesses, are incurring. We hope that in the future it will be easier to figure out what states, counties and areas we will have nexus but until then we are forced to hire that out.
We are committed to keeping costs as low as possible and satisfaction as high as possible. We appreciate the support from our customers over the past 20+ years which has helped BVSTools grow from a small shop to one providing software and services to thousands of customers all over the world.
As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
