Availability and Upgrade Policy
Fundy Designer v7 will be available beginning May 3rd. It will be a FREE upgrade to anyone purchasing NOW or having purchased between July 15, 2015 and now. v6 owners not qualifying for a free upgrade will be offered special upgrade pricing in April. After April, Album Builder upgrade pricing will be $119 and if you are upgrading the entire Suite with Blog Collage and Image Brander, the price will be $139. (*all Gallery Designer owners will receive a free upgrade to v7 because it launched in November 2015).
Special Upgrade Sale Coming in April for Current v6 Users
VERY IMPORTANT – there seems to be some confusion with upgrade pricing.
1. Any module you purchased after July 15, 2015 will get a free upgrade to v7 of that same module.
2. Any module purchased before that date will be required to purchase at special upgrade pricing. $119 will be the upgrade for Album Builder. $20 to upgrade Blog Collage and Image Brander. All Gallery Designer owners will get a free upgrade because it was just released. So the very most anyone will be looking at to upgrade their entire Suite will be $139.
3. In April, we will run a very special upgrade only sale and you will all be looking at under $100 to upgrade all of your products. We believe this is a fair balance between taking care of our customers and our business needs.
