FeedWind Plans FAQ

Feedwind subscription plans allow you to display your widget(s) without our “Powered by FeedWind” branding underneath the widget, allowing you to customize and brand your widgets to match your site design. You can also store more widgets than the free version and aggregate more feed URLs.

Here are some answers to questions you may have:

Q. What plans are available?

There are Four plans available: Free, Lite, Pro and Plus. See below for more details about each plan. To just choose a plan, please visit our Plans page.

Q. I have a FeedWind Pro V1 account. How do I upgrade to a V2 Pro account?

If you already have a V1 FeedWind Pro subscription, you must first register for an account in order for us to upgrade your subscription to a FeedWind Pro V2 account. To do this, please use the  Sign up  button at the top of the setup screen. Once you have an account registered, please use the contact form on the same screen to request a Pro upgrade and we will activate your new signup as a pro account. The account will expire on the same date as your existing V1 account expiry date.

Q. Can I still use FeedWind V1?

Existing FeedWind V1 widgets are still functional but we have removed the setup screen so new V1 widgets can no longer be created. FeedWind V2 has all the features of V1 and more! If you are using FeedWind V1, we recommend you upgrade to V2 as we will be deprecating V1 completely at some point in the future.

Q. How do I subscribe to FeedWind Lite, Pro or Plus plans?

To subscribe and remove the branding link below your widget(s), simply click on the button for the plan you wish to subscribe to at the plans page.

Q. I subscribed to FeedWind Lite/Pro/Plus – what happens next?

You should receive a confirmation email to acknowledge your payment and the expiration date of your subscription. The “Powered by FeedWind” branding below your widget can be removed using the ON/OFF option on the setup screen.

Q. How does the 14-day trial work?

When you select the 14-day trial plan you will be given full access to the plan you selected for 14 days. No payment details are required for the trial period. At the end of the 14 days you can make payment for an annual subscription (Lite, Pro or Plus) plan or you can revert back to the Free plan.

Q. What happens to the widgets I created in my 14-day trial plan if I revert back to the Free plan?

The Free plan only allows for up to 5 widgets to be saved. If you take out a 14-day trial, you will be able to store 5, 20 or 100 widgets (depending on the plan you chose). If you do not take out a paid subscription at the end of the trial period, you will only have access to the first 5 widgets you created and our branding cannot be removed from below your widgets. However, although not accessible under the Free plan, any remaining widgets will still be present in your dashboard. If you take out a paid plan at a future date, those widgets will become available again.

Q. How do I remove the Powered by FeedWind branding below my widgets?

First, you will need to be subscribed to one of our paid plans Lite/Pro/Plus. Then when you visit the setup screen where you create and edit your widgets, You will find a toggle switch to turn off the Powered by FeedWind branding in the “General” section of the setup screen.

Q. Can I add more RSS URLs or make other changes to my widgets after I have created/saved them?

Yes. You can replace, add to, or remove RSS URLs as required up to the 5/20 URL limit allowed in your plan. You can also change any other setting on your widget as you please. Do remember to save after you make changes. Also you don’t need to copy the code again; any updates you make in the settings page will be automatically reflected on the sites where you installed your widget. A page refresh is all that’s required to see changes made to a widget at the site where it is installed.
