Dropbox “Shared Folder” Makes Everyone Pay for the Same Space

leave a comment »

Dropbox is a service that gives you online space for synching files between services and sharing files with other dropbox users.  But, when sharing, it’s as if each of the users pays for the same space.

Let’s say you have a team of 8 people who want to share 10 GB of space.  Dropbox offers 50GB of storage for $9.99 /month.  But for each of those users to access that space, they ALL have to pay $9.99 every month.  So, that’s going to run $79.92 each month or $959 per year.

A thousand dollars a year for 8 people to share 10 GB?  I’d say Dropbox needs to work on their pricing for shared folders.
