Think Ministry, Inc has designated select security roles as "Discounted." If your Users are granted one, two, or three of these roles, they will cost less each month in user support. But note: If they have four or more such roles OR if they have any other security roles, they will be normal secured users.
As of April 1, 2020, churches will be automatically enrolled in the Discounted User Program at their next renewal, provided they are paying the current retail rate for their edition of MinistryPlatform. Currently, over 2/3 of our churches are already enrolled.
Users who have 3 or fewer of these security roles will qualify for a discount. The price for a discounted user will be different depending on your edition:

Think Ministry, Inc will evaluate additional security roles we may include as discounted roles in the future.
If you are working with one of our partners to build an application for your church that leverages security roles in MinistryPlatform, contact Support to inquire about making those security roles discounted roles. Please note that the scope of discounted roles will need to be small in terms of the data they can read and update. Also, it will need to be used exclusively outside of MinistryPlatform.
Your church will still be eligible for volume discounts secured users. Bulk secured users discounts are achieved as we lower the price per user the more secured users you have. However, discounted users will NOT count towards your volume discount and the rate we charge for Discounted Users will not change based on volume.
