On various websites (such as music plugin site kvraudio.com) there are often people getting together to organise a group purchase of an expensive product to give a) the makers a lot of purchases at once and b) to give it slightly cheaper to the consumer.
Would Fxhome consider doing something like this after the introductory offer?

They already do.
We offer massive discounts to educational buyers for bulk purchases over 9 units.

That's only for educational purchases (ie schools wanting to put it in the classroom). Our products are already heavily discounted and affordable for individuals. We think that everyone should have access to these sorts of programs so we already operate at our lowest possible price.

I don't think a group purchase would benefit either side very much, unless we are talking about a large number of people. We will always listen to specific offers though, so if you think you can convince us otherwise then come and talk to us on the chat (or send us an email to team@fxhome.com)

smile fair enough. I do agree that the prices are extremely affordable. But I have big pockets and short arms sometimes. I was just planning to maybe arrange a group purchase with a group of filmmakers I know and I was going to see if anyone here were interested in joining us. Thinking about this now, its probably not going to be a big enough purchase to be significant to you guys. Full price is still a fair price though! dont get me wrong guys!
