Jira subscription methods

Jira software

As you may know, Atlassian Corporation is an Australian software company that develops products for software developers, project managers and other software development teams.  They also provide a toolset for planning, tracking, collaborating, offering support, coding, building and shipping

There are two types of subscription, one is annual based while the other one is monthly based. It shall be some kind of common sense that customers would always thought that annual payment is more cost-effective than the monthly subscription. However, it might not be the optimal choice for everyone.        

Firstly, monthly-based plan can offer you more flexibility. As some corporates may expand their Jira team incrementally, monthly subscription allows you to add more seats month by month.  Secondly, if the users of your company do not reach the upper limit of each user tier for annual subscription plan, then the cost per head for monthly subscription is even more cost-saving.        

When you are considering about which subscription plan you should go for, here are some tips for you: 

  1. Is your team members tend to more more stable or dynamic?        
    2. Is your team members count reaching the upper limit of annual plan user tier?        
    3. Are you planning to have any feature enhancements or add-one integration?        

    If your team is tend to be more dynamic and planning to have some add-ons, monthly payments might be a better choice for you. But if your team is tend to be more stable, just go for annual plan for the potential cost-saving benefits.
