Running any website isn't cheap. Especially resource websites like image hosting with heavy traffic and high bandwidth.
Because of this donations are much appreciated but aren't required to use any of our services. We are transparent about our fees an service costs.
No. However, we hope to offer paid perks and plans in the future see our Will you offer different membership plans? article. Remember we will always offer a free unlimited (no limits) subscription.
We do place advertisements around our website to lower the costs. However with enough donations we can remove adverts. In a previous update we reduced the number of adverts shown.
We try and show adverts that are more relevant to the image you're viewing - not yourself we do no track your browsing history.
For example if you’re browsing an image which shows a screen capture of Windows 10 or Windows 10 logo we will try and show relevant adverts such as ads for Windows, Windows 10 or Microsoft related ads.
Absolutely! In fact many people do use Adblock when browsing the internet.
However, we would really appreciate if you could whitelist our free service as it will help us fund UploadMe and allow us to provide the free plan an add new features.
You can show your appreciation for UploadMe and support future development by donating, We strongly feel that our site and downloads and everything should remain free of charge as our gift to the online community. Of course we appreciate any amount. You can find out more about making a donation via PayPal.
Our running costs are around £180 GBP (roughly $225 USD / $327 AUD / $296 CAD) a month.
Based on our current growth we're expecting a 27% increase by Q2 2022.
