Thanks for the overwhelming support and love for Xmarks sync services. If you can seriously commit to paying an annual fee to keep the service running, we'd like to have your pledge. If we can reach a critical mass of users, we'll see if we can't find the people and resources to honor your requests.

  • Also me is seen in the long row of all the other ones having missed the pledge deadline - and of course, it's absolutely no question, that this brilliant service is worth at least a small $10 charge a year! and no question, I'm willing to pay for that, apparently even more!! Keep going, folks - the good things must live!

  • Missed the pledge. I will more than gladly pay $10-20 a year for the service.

    I think the pledge did not reach many people. I was very sad that the service was ending and did not check the site. Xmarks team should have mailed about the pledge

  • It would be $10-20 well spent. I hope it works out.
    Mark W, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • Has anyone been adding up all these responses by those of us who'd be willing to pay but missed the deadline to be counted on the initial round of the pledge? Would there be enough of us to make a difference? Is there any news on a search to find some way to save XMarks? Or have the developers given up?

  • You can now buy the subscription service http://buy.xmarks.com/premium.php
    Thorsten Biegner, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • The last I saw, the developers were planning to sell their company to another company which plans to continue the Xmarks services. News on any progress on their negotiations with this other company has been slow in appearing, though.

    I think I'll wait until they fix the problems with the page about subscriptions (at least when viewed with IE) before I buy any subscription, though.

  • Good news!
    XMarks to survive after all. See

    http://blog.xmarks.com

    which says:

    "Today we’re excited to announce that Xmarks has been acquired by LastPass, makers of a leading cross-platform password manager. It’s a great opportunity that ensures the survival of Xmarks as the same service that you know and love...We’re also committed to keeping Xmarks free while implementing a viable long-term plan."
  • I'm so glad LastPass bought Xmark. LastPass features are just as awesome as Xmarks. They are like my 2 most favorite companies. It's awesome they are getting married!!! For their wedding gift, I think I will spend $10 to $20. Hopefully another 100,000 people will also.
    stan, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • I missed the pledge, would def. pay a reasonable fee or xmarks. Glad to see so many supporters.
    michael albitz, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • Also late, but would totally pay $10/yr for your awesome service.
    Alex Johnson, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • @last couple who posted that they "would" pay but missed the pledge, this is a non-issue now. Scroll back a few posts. LastPass bought XMarks. You can now buy the subscription service here: http://buy.xmarks.com/premium.php
  • I have already signed up for the Xmarks + LastPass premium account! I had been using LastPass for a while too and I think they're the best company to have acquired Xmarks. The two go great together!
    Bryan Garvin, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • I'm so happy that Xmarks will keep going. I signed up for the premium service yesterday.
    Dianne Pope, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • I missed the pledge but I just purchased one year's subscription.
    mpezar, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • Just signed up for one year. The first time I tried, though, it looked like Google Checkout was trying to outdo Xmarks for Firefox in low quality error messages, by offering no error message at all when it kept the final button grayed out after I had spent about 2 hours filling out the forms for the earlier steps.

    Xmarks is so important to me,
    this is the best bookmark sync add-on on earth ever!!!!!
    i'm SO excited it's going to live on :DDD
    i'm willing to pay too!!! why not???
    JOY Liu, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • I missed the pledge and would gladly pay for Xmarks.
    kobapan, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • Missed the pledge - would definitely pay 10 bucks per year for Xmarks.
    Nick Sterg, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • There should not still be messages coming in here from people regretting missing the deadline for pledging to subscribe. LastPass.com has been offering annual subscrptions to XMarks (which they bought awhile back) for some time now. Isn't there something on the XMarks website yet that directs people how to subscribe?
  • It's a very useful service to have, especially if you work with two different browsers on three different OS'es on three different computers. I would definitely pay 15$/year!
    C.M., 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • I will pay 20$/year.
    Please please don't go out of business.
    Emailias.com is already gone without even asking for more money and it hurts, please don't do the same.
    Please start charging money, I'd love to pay for a good service.
  • ******** XMARKS IS SAVED!! ********

    For those of you who have not heard:
    http://blog.xmarks.com/?p=2033
  • They've set the price for Xmarks Premium at $12 a year, and probably twice that to buy it with LastPass Premium as well.

    See here for purchase instructions:

    http://buy.xmarks.com/upgrade.php

    I expect the password synchronization feature to eventually require LastPass Premium as well, and therefore plan to buy it also AFTER instructions for using Xmarks Premium and LastPass Premium together are available.

    If your purchase method requires creating a Google Checkout account, don't expect all steps to work correctly the first time you try; you're likely to have to try again a few days later.

  • xmarks is great! i would pay 10$ - 20$ because its worth it!
    freddy milz, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • it's not just xmarks, but the people , who are so kind and helpful, that i wish well, yes, i would subscribe and have offered to and suggested it often. it is SO useful.
    PETER CODNER, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • Utilizo Xmarks desde hace tiempo atrás, realmente es una excelente utilidad y estaría dispuesto a pagar USD 20,00 anuales por el mismo.

  • Yes I would be prepared to pay $10 a year for this service
    Elizabeth McGuire Cleary, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • i'd pay too but you can't email them anymore to ask more detailed questions about how to go about it
    PETER CODNER, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • @Elizabeth -- please take a look at:
    http://buy.xmarks.com/premium.php

    @Peter -- we offer support.
  • @Pledebank team:
    1. search does not work
    2. users which subscribe pledge will not get e-mail for confirmation
    3. All Open Pledges does not work
    4. Pledgebank is useless
  • You should have a place for people to show they bought the premium package from LastPass. I paid for it and didn't recall the pledge.
    Jay Rice, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • I went to "My Pledges" and manually changed the status to fulfilled after purchasing both XMarks and LastPass. BTW, I had trouble with the shopping cart, so y'all might want to look at that.
    Keter Magick.com + NewEridu.net, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • I bought the premium package as soon as it was announced and changed status on this site, but I'm still getting nagged about fulfilling it!
    gildawie, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • I received an email reminder to pay. I thought Xmarks is okay now that LastPass has bought them. Can this be clarified? Also, the petition didn't reach the goal. I'd be happy to purchase premium though now that I got paid today.
    Jef, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • Just was waiting to have money in my paypal account - I just went and paid for the LastPass / Xmarks combo package!
  • When searching for xmarks on pledgebank.com I find three results.

    Which is the "correct" official one?
  • I did honor my pledge and signed up as soon as I knew it was available. Looking forward to better things and that xmarks can improve and continue to provide this helpful service
    Barton Young, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • I finally purchased xmarks premium in a bundle with lastpass. They make a great team.
    Bruno R., 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • I have no problem with the $10.00 per year. From what I see though I do not need the premium version though, I do not use any smart phones or such. Just a desktop and laptop. I just don't know where or how to do this.
    bigbri, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • @bigbri

    Where to do this? Simple, here: http://buy.xmarks.com/premium.php

    And I wouldn't see it as buying something but as giving a thank you for what you believe is a good free product and service. At least thats how I see it.
    Thorsten Biegner, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • @bigbri:

    I don't have a use for most of the premium-features also (yet), but I still registered and would agree with Thorsten. I bought it to support a great product (even registered both XMarks and LastPass, as both are well worth the small amount they're asking for).
    Stephan Huebner, 3 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • I just signed up for the LastPass + Xmarks premium subscription. I took a while to do it because I wasn't sure that I wanted to do LastPass as well. Now that I have been using LastPass for a while, I have to say it is every bit as useful as Xmarks, and I am happy to support both. Hopefully in the future, they will integrate the password functionality between the two, as it is currently a bit redundant.
