Supporting Yahoo Finance
Hey I love Yahoo Finance and have been using it for 23+ years. However, I just don't have $500 a year to purchase the "premium" service. How about a monthly subscription model with a tshirt mailed out at the end of the year or some other small, annual gift, to show that we support the website? It could be at a lower level, maybe $10/mo?
You guys are great and I want to help keep the business alive.

I send a onetime payment of $20 to rtings.com every time I buy a TV. I was the one who invented their payment / crowdfunding feature. Why don't you offer something like that on Yahoo Finance? Or some level of membership that lets me have skins or some sort of gold chain on my user-id which shows that I am a website supporter, like LoL or reddit? There are many websites (such as news sites) that I would gladly support for ~$50 a year, but everybody wants $100 a year for one single website which is a ripoff since I read from 50 news sources and I feel like 3-5c an article is fair. ... Alternately how about letting me choose ONE feature for $50/year ??
Agreed. There are only 3 services which interest me: portfolio analytics, fair value analysis, and enhanced charting. I would try Premium for a year at half the current discounted annual price, or $175. If it seemed useful I might continue at the full price. Or I would consider paying a lower fee for the subset of services which interest me. A more flexible fee schedule would be attractive in any case.

Great feed back. We are taking this into consideration and will be in touch.

How about a lower tier just for Ad Free and 15yr Financials?
Those are the only two features I want. I would pay for them, just not $400/yr since they can be accessed for free elsewhere.

Kind of like a Patreon subscription ??
