Subscription FAQ

  • Subscription Changes

    We have decided to delay the switch to a subscription system. This will give us some time to polish the site and improve the SRS. The subscription system will begin May 10th. To allow users to test the full version of the site, we will offer all new and existing users a free one month trial. This means Bunpro will continue to be free to you for the next two months.
    We will offer a "lite" version of Bunpro that will allow access to each grammar point's meaning and structure, a limited number of example sentences and all of the reference links and textbook page numbers. This version will be free.
    The full version of the site will be available to subscribers and includes:
    • All of our example sentences.
    • Our SRS system to review those sentences.
    • The ability to add your own notes and study questions.
    • Upcoming features such as statistics about your progress and more.
    A monthly subscription will be available for $5 and a yearly subscription for $50. At the request of many users, we will also offer a $150 lifetime membership. We understand that the site is still being developed and as a way of saying thank you for supporting us as we continue to develop the site, we will offer a discount to make the subscription price match the progress of the site. Since only 60% of the site (three JLPT levels out of five) is done, the monthly and yearly subscriptions will be available for 60% of the full price. This means that a monthly subscription will be $3 and a yearly subscription will be $30. As we add more content we will adjust the price accordingly.
    The lifetime membership is currently discounted to $90 as a special thank you to everyone who commits to joining Bunpro for life from the outset.
    For those that have already supported us, any amount that you have donated will be available as a credit toward your subscription and will be deducted from whichever plan you choose should you choose to subscribe.
    As always, we are open to any and all feedback so please don't hesitate to let us know your thoughts!
