This is a heads-up that early bird discount for both Obsidian Sync and Obsidian Publish will end on September 30, 2021 .
We waited a bit to end the early bird discount in order to accommodate back-to-school season, so if Obsidian helps with your studies, right now would be a good time to grab either services. We’re a small team who depends on people like you to spread the word to grow, so please please recommend Obsidian to your classmates and peers if you find helpful, thank you so much!
Q: I live in another time zone. Which time zone is the deadline in?
A: We understand the end of September 30 is not the same time everywhere in the world. As long as you pay before the end of that day in your local time zone, you will be fine.
Q: I’m paying via PayPal and haven’t received my instructions, will I miss the early bird discount?
A: As long as you send an email to us before September 30 in your local time, you can get it! It might take some time to process all the requests but you will still qualify.
Q: I’m paying via Wechat and have not received my service before September, will I miss the early bird discount?
A: As long as you send the payment and email us before September 30 in your local time, you will get early bird discount for life.
Q : Can I switch from monthly to yearly or yearly to monthly after the discount ends?
A: Yes, you can switch without losing the discount.
Q: If I buy Sync now, will I have discount for Publish?
A: No, the discounts work separately. The Publish discount doesn’t work for Sync either.
Q: If I stop renewing my subscription after getting the early bird discount, will I still have it?
A: Yes, your account will always have the discount even after you stop renewing. But you need to pay at least once; if you refund all the payments, you will lose the early bird discount.
Q: Do I have to buy Sync and Publish? Are there free alternatives?
A: No, you don’t have to buy them to sync or publish your vault. Their selling points are convenience and easy setup.
To synchronize your vault between devices, you can use any sync solution that works on local folders, such as Dropbox, iCloud, and Google Drive. For mobile, you may need apps like DropSync to help with syncing, although iCloud can work for iOS.
To publish your vault is a more technical task. Fortunately Markdown is a developer favorite, and there are lots of popular tools to convert Markdown into static, ready-to-publish sites like Hugo, Jekyll, and Quartz.
Q: If i purchased an Obsdian publish for one site, will be the early bird price apply for additional sites after September 30th?
A: Yes, as long as you’ve purchased Publish by the end of September, your account will be grandfathered for early bird rates and the discount will apply for any additional sites you purchase under the same account.
