How can we improve Xamarin?

Monthly subscription for Business account

I really wish that you provided a monthly subscription option for Business accounts. I have no problem paying the amount you have listed for a business account, but it's a bit painful for my very small business to have to pay for the full amount up-front. A monthly subscription would certainly help us! Thanks!

        Jefferson, please spamming this post. You're asking for a price reduction. I'm asking for a monthly option for paying for the business license. You should open a new thread asking for that.

        Hi! TODAY (09/16/2015) in Brazil:

        Regular value: $ 999.00/platform
        Total cost: $ 999.00/platform
        Conversion (US $ 1.00 = R$ 3,860 [today - 09/16/2015]): R$ 3.856,14/platform
        +/- 30% financial taxes + governamental rates: R$ 1.156,842/platform
        End Total cost, in Brazil: R$ 5.012,982/platform.

        Today Android and iOS platform, total local cost, R$ 10.025,964...

        Think Xamarin, think...

        Hi guys! TODAY (09/01/2015) in Brazil, the scenario is:

        Regular value: $ 999.00/platform
        Total cost: $ 999.00/platform
        Conversion (US $ 1.00 = R$ 3,63 [today - 09/01/2015]): R$ 3.626,37/platform
        +/- 30% financial taxes + governamental rates: R$ 1.087,92/platform
        End Total cost, in Brazil: R$ 4.714,29/platform.

        Today Android and iOS platform, total local cost, R$ 9.428,58...

        Please Xamarin, Brazilian devs REALLY need your help, just monthly payment for business subscription is awesome for us...

        I agree with Jefferson, conversion R$ to U$ is impossible to pay with a small business or freelancer. The Xamarin need to look better from us here in Brazil.

        This suggestions is justified because, in Brazil, the scenario is:

        Regular value: $ 999.00/platform
        Total cost: $ 999.00/platform
        Conversion (US $ 1.00 = R$ 3,57 [today - 08/27/2015]): R$ 3.566,43/platform
        +/- 30% financial taxes + governamental rates: R$ 1.069,93/platform
        End Total cost, in Brazil: R$ 4.636,36/platform.

        Imagine that cost for a small business company... Android and iOS platform, total local cost, R$ 9.272,72...
