Monthly option to purchase Professional license

3/5/18 EDIT: There is now the option to purchase a monthly subscription on the final page, after entering credit card information.  For monthly subscribers, pricing is currently 40% higher than the advertised monthly rates on the front page when a monthly basis is selected, though it is phrased as a 30% discount for annual purchasers. 

I thank the developers for rolling out this feature.  My original comment below is now moot.

***************

I would really like an opportunity to try the professional license but only see an option to purchase a license on an annual basis and not a monthly basis.  Can this be fixed?  

As it is, I am a single user on a large team but cannot use 5 seat licenses because I cannot drive adoption without a track record of success.   I am willing to pay for five licenses given that *that* is the only option, but there is no way that a short 2-week trial can in any way demonstrate the value in this product so as to justify an annual license purchase without testing it for a few months.  My deadlines work on 3-month intervals so the trial didn't even cover a single motion sequence or series of court appearances.   

That said, I see promise in improving my productivity and the goal is to get my company to adopt Wrike on my quickly growing team of 20+ attorneys as well as support staff.  This a perfect time to demonstrate that Wrike has value to the team because they have already begun discussions about rolling out Slack and other workplace technology.  But before forcing staff to adopt to new technology and to populate Wrike with deadlines and other information, I need to see it work for me over a few month period.  

Can anyone reach out to me about setting up a monthly payment option?  Thanks.

I am in a similar position and I'm keen to know that a month-to-month option is available for us initially.

 

Looking forward to seeing an answer to this question, and ultimately signing up for a Professional licence. Thanks.

I had a call with sales, and the contact described their sweet spot as basically a 3-6k annual spend. Given that, I was shocked - absolutely shocked -that they refused to offer anything other than a professional demo to my practice group... There appears to be absolutely no interest in earning revenue except on an enterprise basis. I said very clearly that I needed a proof of concept for a small userbase to establish that the product works so as to help me get buy in. There's no way my colleagues are getting support staff trained on a new technology system for a trial. I have a hard enough time getting staff to work with existing technology. The sales contact was unfazed. Not sure what the business case is for this but it is their company. I have to imagine there are tons more small creatives that would like to use this as opposed to Trello, workfront, Zoho, or even Microsoft project software. They just apparently have no interest.

Best regards.

Absolutely remarkable business strategy

@David Wrike is geared towards team collaboration and we do work with teams of all sizes. I think there may have been a miscommunication, we're happy to give you a demo of the different subscription types.  Please let me know if you would like to have a call with someone on the team and we can further discuss different account options. 

@Mark Our Professional subscription is available month-to-month. Happy to have someone from the team reach out to talk about this with you, just let me know if that's what you want. We also have pricing information available online if you would rather check there.

Unfortunately, there is no flexibility for single users.  I decided that it was worth paying for 5 seats just so that I could use the program for myself.  I then discovered that I would be forced to signup for the annual subscription.  So for a single user the minimum cost is $600 up front.  Sad that you make it so prohibitive for someone who really wants to give you money to use a decent product.  A real lack of vision.  What happens when a single user grows a company?  They will have moved on to another product to get their needs met and carry resentment towards your product.

There is a monthly option on the final page of placing your order. You are still committed to a 5 user minimum...but you can pay monthly. You do pay more per month for monthly than annually.

Totally lack of vision. I also want to pay per month for my team of 5 people, and there is no option. I really can't understand. Swithing to Asana instead. So sorry.
