Coming Soon... update… It won’t be Free Forever!

I talked to Aaron Sperling, CEO/President of today and as I suspected getting all the great features of for free is too good to be true. Aaron said they plan to "introduce a pricing structure" in the next 2 to 3 weeks. He said he would send me a press release as soon as they decide on what the pricing is going to be. So as they say in Kansas, "make hay while the sun shines" because you may have to pay for some aspects of this service in the near future.

I pointed a slight bug in the photo formatting to Aaron... if the number of photos is not an even multiple of 5 there's a formatting problem. He said that that would be fixed in the next few days. He also invited me to give him input on So if you run in to problems or have any suggestions for Aaron leave a comment to this post and I'll pass your feedback on to Aaron.

  1. I think it's wild that after only three months of service vFlyer would shift to a pay service. You would think that they would stay free for a while so that it would become popular as each free flyer is seen by classified junkies everywhere prompting them to check out vflyer for themselves. Get them hooked, then offer a premium service to heavy users (a la skype).

    Now that the vflyer honeymoon is over... There is also an older and similar service called that may stay free longer than vflyer. The layouts are not as beautiful and the expanding thumbnails are not there but it accomplishes basically the same thing.

  2. They may continue to have some kind of free service. I'd be supprised if they didn't continue to have some free service with reduced fucntionality.

  3. Hey Larry,

    I can't remember if I registered with you as a photographer.. I had thought so, but I don't see myself listed.

    I am primarily a virtual tour provider but do provide photography services to clients, 12 stills for $50, if they don't want to do their own.

    Would you like for me to send you some of my work?

    Thank you,


  4. Thanks for posting the info about vFlyer. Pretty useful stuff - even if it's not free.

    I emailed a suggestion to the company that it would be nice to be able to start a project, then send a link and password to the homeowner/realtor so that they can complete filling it out, creating prints, etc...
