So now even people who have all PA plug-ins do subscription. Looks like PA is a new Apple :) Why not simply give your own credit card to PA? If you love a company and you want to give them money, go full throttle! :)
If you have all plugins you got a $149.99 per year offer for the subscription. If you resell the plugins at only 15$ per plugin on average, your existing plugins pay for the subscription for the next decade. This is not that unattractive.
I wonder if I’ll be able to finish a song within a decade.

That makes sense but from posts on FB Group it doesnt seem like it's the reason to do it but to support the best plugins developer in the universe :)
don't use plugin/s in this topic! It has aliasing at -196dB and 60fps

If you have enough plugins, PA is around long enough and you sell every plugin at all, this could work.

Caveat: maybe only a few plugins still hold a $15 value.

And if the price goes up for next year's subscription?

Maybe her/her meant he/she can help with taking Subsynth for 15$, just like you were willing to take those you listed for that amount. That's at least how I interpreted it the first time I read it.

If you want to sell PA plugins you need to wait until the market has cooled down again. At the moment it is oversaturated with relatively low offers from people who either want to take the first mover advantage or who are trying to prove the point that they hate PA. Give it a couple of months. There are a few plugins that will continue to hold value and there always have been those who you cannot get rid of even if you give them away for free. But on average, the 15$ per plugin should be fairly accurate. It will also depend a but on PA's pricing policy from now on. If PA stops sending out monthly vouchers, which seems to be the way this is developing, resale values might even go up a bit.
