No. Payment for Adblock Plus (ABP) is 100% optional! We provide ad blocking for free. That is exactly what you read. Internet with no ads. For free. No catch.
We pride ourselves on voluntary contributions from happy users and believe that people who love Adblock Plus will pay a fair price for it. This is why we have an “honor system” in place. You get to choose how much and how often you’d like to contribute (if at all).
If you do want to support us, there are a few different ways to do so. You can make a one-time or a recurring contribution here: Help Adblock Plus make the internet a better place. Alternatively, you can upgrade to Adblock Plus Premium, where you’ll have access to additional features.
Regardless if you set up a recurring contribution or if you go for the Premium upgrade, you can cancel at any time. If you're unsatisfied, just request a refund within 120 days.
And if you're not in a position to pay, we understand! When you install ABP or when we update the extension, you can simply close our contribution page by clicking the "x" on the tab. That's all there is to it!
If you would still like to show your support for ABP there are plenty of other ways to support us at absolutely no cost. One way is simply by spreading the word. Giving us a good review in your browser’s extension store and telling your friends and family about us are two quick and efficient ways that really make a difference. You can also help us translate ABP to other languages, report bugs, or add and improve filters. Learn more here: Support the project.
