Setapp applies a monthly subscription plan to all its users by default. It costs $9.99 (+ taxes, depending on your country) and is charged every month, at the beginning of a new billing period.
You may prefer to subscribe annually and pay for Setapp services once a year. In this case, one month in Setapp will cost you only $8.99 ($107.88 per year + taxes), which is 10% less than the regular monthly payment.
If you choose this option in your online Setapp account, the entire amount of money for a yearly service ($107.88 + taxes) will be charged at the beginning of the next billing period.
Setapp provides a special 50% discount to students, researchers, and educators. So, if you are involved in the sphere of education, you can expect to get access to top-quality Setapp apps at $59.88 per year (+ taxes).
All you need to do is use your working educational institution email with Setapp. You can either register with it or change your current email to the educational one on the "Account settings" page of your online Setapp account. If your domain is listed on our Educational Discount page (scroll to the bottom), you will be able to change your subscription plan to Educational by simply following instructions from this article.
Note that the Educational plan assumes that you purchase Setapp's yearly subscription at 50% discount. In other words, you'll have to pay the entire yearly subscription fee at once. The EDU plan doesn't offer discounts for extra device subscriptions; they always come at $2.49 per device.
If you can't find your educational domain in Setapp's list or if you don't have an appropriate email but still can prove your relation to the field of education, please contact our support team, and we'll help you get your discount.
If you have a family or a bunch of friends, you may enjoy Setapp's Family plan. It allows you to use Setapp along with up to 3 people at $19.99 per month. All you need to do is visit the "Family plan" page of your Setapp account and click "Switch to Family plan." Depending on your current subscription plan, you will be switched either to the monthly Family plan ($19.99 is charged every month) or yearly Family plan ($239.88 is charged once a year).
As an owner of the Family, you pay for the subscription immediately after the confirmation of the upgrade. The price is fixed and doesn't depend on the number of Family members.
You can invite up to 3 Family members via email and remove them if you need to. Please note that all invitees must be new to Setapp.
Limitations. This plan allows every Family member to use Setapp on one Mac only; extra devices are only available for the Family owner, not for members. The Friends program is also not applicable here: Family members don’t need free months with Setapp since they already have the subscription paid by the Family owner.
Extra device subscription
If you want to use Setapp’s iOS apps or enjoy Setapp on another Mac, you’ll need an unoccupied device slot in your account for every single device (an iPhone, an iPad, or a Mac). Every device comes at $2.49 (+ taxes) for any subscription plan. See our article about managing devices for more details.
