Premium features and not enough choices for paying Answered

Why not also offer one-time payments for downloads? I would've spent the money for one; maybe others would too. And then you'd make more money, I'd have my download, and happiness would abound.

AFAIK Instructables is all about making things.
That is why people get rewarded for good Instructables or winning a contest.
I guess it is supposed to work like this:
People find something they want to make themself.
Once happy with the outcome they are "hooked" and try more.
Then they publish their own Instructable and if lucky get a fre pro account in return.

For a single project it is not too hard to copy the contents of the Ible and to print it out if you need paper.
I have a pro account now for quite some time and only downloaded one PDF if I count correctly....

Hi, thank you for your quick reply. I don't necessarily print whatever it is that I'm downloading; I save it to an online drive and doc cloud for easy access from whatever device I'm using. If the need arises I can go ahead and print a copy. But it's really just about the accessibility. I can appreciate what you're saying, though, so I'll just continue to enjoy the website--I'm hooked! ?
