Discord Nitro is Discord's way of saying a gigantic THANK YOU to all you guys who help us continue to do what we do. We'd give you all a super big hug if we could.
Like.. Snorlax-sized cuddle puddle.
We wanted to give our Discord family an easy way to show support for Discord, grab a couple of nifty perks, and help us continue what we love doing: pouring our heart & soul into making a super wonderful chat & voice experience for gamers and communities alike.
It's worth noting that Discord's core features will stay free! Group calls, making as many servers as you like, and all the fun stuff in between will never cost a dime. Nitro gives you a little bit of extra goodness, like a spicy pinch of icing on your corn cake. Is that a thing? I hope not.
So what's in the package? Nitro will bestow upon you the following power-ups:
|1. Upload a Gif Avatar: Nitro will let you add some animation-y goodness to your profile picture. You can turn your still life avatar into a cool moving GIF, and it'll show up and do its magic tricks in text channels and all of your friend's servers.|
|2. Use custom emotes everywhere: While normally, custom emotes can only be used in the server that they've been uploaded to (with a few exceptions), Nitro will unlock your Kappa arsenal to be unleashed in every server and DM at your every whim. Remember, with great power comes great responsibility!|
|3. Increase your file uploading cap from 8mb to 50mb: Normally, you can upload individual files up to 8mb at a time, but having Nitro will supercharge your upload cannon into a 50mb force to be reckoned with.|
|Bonus: You'll also get this sweet Nitro badge to show off to your buddies in your profile. Cool kid status.|
Signing up for Nitro is pretty simple as well. The second tab in your user settings page is a "Nitro" tab.
Once there, clicking the big PURCHASE button will open a new screen, allowing you to enter your payment info, and watch Wumpus zoom along on his trusty Wheelie.
On the next screen, enter your credit card information and other payment details and accept them. Upon successful completion of the payment, Wumpus & Co. will reach the destination, win the prize, and you'll be Nitro-charged and good to go.
Some more important details
We've made Nitro a subscription-based feature. What this means is that when you sign up, you'll have two options to sign up: pay $4.99 USD per month or $49.99 per year (whoa, two months free!) to keep your account all Nitro'd up. Put simply, when you pay the subscription fee, you'll get a month-long Nitro boost to your account. No more payment on your end, and you'll enjoy those features for 30 days.
If you choose to continue subscribing to Nitro, your credit card will be automatically charged another $4.99 one month after your purchase. The next charge date is listed at the top of your Nitro tab:
You can cancel your Nitro subscription at any time by pressing the Cancel button in your Nitro Payment information screen.
If you've paid for a month of Nitro, you'll continue to get Nitro features for that 30-day time period, even if you withdraw your subscription. Additionally, you can change your payment method details at any time using the "Change Card" button in the payment information section:
Finally, if you run into any troubles with improper charges or further questions about payment information, please email us at [email protected], and we'll help you there. Happy Nitro-ing!
