Feedly offered lifetime Pro editions for a one-time payment of $99. A limited number of 5,000 memberships were put on sale. They sold out in a mere 8 hours.

On Monday, August 5th, the Feedly team introduced a new Pro version. For a bit of extra functionality, Feedly asks for $5 per month or $45 per year. And to mark the launch of Feedly Pro, a total of 5,000 lifetime memberships were put on sale. The news is that said memberships sold out in a mere 8 hours. It just goes to show you that Feedly customers are willing to part with a bit of money in exchange for some extra functionality.

Speaking about extra functionality, here are the first new features offered by Feedly Pro:
  • Search – you can search within your feeds.
  • HTTPS – you can browse on an encrypted connection.
  • Evernote – with a mouse click you can save to content to Evernote.
  • Premium support – Pro customers will get premium support from the Feedly team.

The Feedly team explained that more features will be added in the future. Pro customers will get to vote on what features they would like to get, and based on their feedback, the Feedly team will add new features to Feedly Pro.

But I digress. Let’s get back to the topic at hand. As I was saying, the 5,000 lifetime Feedly Pro memberships sold out in 8 hours. Feedly’s CEO Edwin Khodabakchian explained that all this money, a total of $495K will go towards hardware purchases – Feedly will purchase the hardware it need to make Feedly Pro generally available.

“Feedly Pro sends a clear message that you are the customer and not the product,” said Edwin Khodabakchian. “We are excited to have a business model centered around customer satisfaction and we are going to do everything we can to make sure that both standard and pro users are happy.”
