This is probably just a bug caused by everything being a Bit Much in the wake of Google Reader ending. But I thought I should flag it anyway, especially in case anyone’s having the same problem.
I’m a long-standing free subscriber to Newsblur, came online today to find that I can no longer access most of my feeds without paying. Fair enough - you’re overloaded, it’s understandable. I’m not earning at the moment, but I can still afford $1 a month, so attempted to pay for the 1-burger option using Paypal.
Paypal said it went through, but then it took me straight back to Newsblur, with me showing as a free subscriber. Tried again - so I’m now down for paying $2 a month. This time there was a “Thank you!” screen, before Newsblur again loaded with me as a free subscriber, so still only the 12 accounts showing.
If this is just a hiccup caused by the influx of new people and will be sorted out in the next couple of days, no problem! (Although if anyone can point the way to my cancelling half of my double-subscription, I’d be grateful… it’s messy, and while I’d have willingly gone for the 2-burger option if I could afford it, at present I can’t.)
But an idea as to how long I’ll be stuck using the free version when I’ve paid for the subscribed version would be very, very pleasing. I really don’t want to have to pay a third time…
