💰 There are currently 40 active Polygloss Unlimited subscribers, getting us about £78 monthly after google play and app store take their cut. With the addition of lifetime Polygloss Unlimited purchases, the revenue for the last 30 days was £226. Basic maintenance of the app costs about £80-100 monthly (hosting, newsletters, software licenses etc) not counting extraordinary expenses such as paying part-time staff (£275), marketing campaigns (£50-500), or paying myself (£0). This means we are currently operating at loss. If you would like to support us, consider subscribing for Polygloss Unlimited 💖 You can read more info about Polygloss’ finances in our Notion Workspace.
