Maybe because few days passed, so it means while you wait price keeps growing and you are penalized for not buying wup.
Checked again, and Supertap wup price continues growing to 10.20. But other few plugin wup prices stay the same. How it is calculated and why SuperTap is so exceptional among them is a mystery.
The cost to renew WUP for plugins with an expired plan will be higher, compared to plugins of equal MSRP with active coverage. The WUP coverage of your Supertap license already expired last year, that's why it's WUP cost is higher than you estimated. And the longer you wait, the more you'll pay.
Looking at the numbers from whyterabbyt
though, it won't probably hurt that much:
IR-1, WUP expired May 12, 2018 $7.80 quoted
Lo-Air Native, expired June 28, 2014 $12.50 quoted
Kramer Master Tape Native, expired June 28, 2014$ 30.70 quoted
Q-Clone native, expired June 28, 2014 $18.20 quoted
SoundShifter, expired June 13, 2015 $14.80 quoted
In his example the coverage for Lo-Air, which has the same MSRP as Supertap, expired 4 years ago. However the cost has only risen to 12,50$ during all that time.
My current guess is, that the "WUP-Penalty" shows the most growth within the first year, after a plan expires. It will continue to grow after that, but much slower. And the longer you wait after that, the slower it will grow.
