If you haven't reviewed the article, What products does Fusebox offer?, we suggest checking that out now as it provides a quick look at what products Fusebox offers and the various scenarios you may want to use them. Otherwise, let's jump into the differences between a Free and Pro.
Pro Account vs. Pro Show
First, let's compare the difference between the meaning of the Pro status between Fusebox 1.0 and 2.0.
In Fusebox 1.0 users decided between a Free or Pro account. Pro accounts received a single license key and activation and paid for additional activations, as needed.
In Fusebox 2.0 every account is free. Users add shows to their accounts and decide whether that show requires a Free or Pro plan.
Here are some examples: In Fusebox 1.0, If I had 1 podcast and 3 websites, I would be charged for 3 site activations even though I only had 1 podcast. In Fusebox 2.0, If I have 1 podcast and 3 websites, I will only be charged for 1 show.
In short, Fusebox 1.0 offered Pro Accounts while Fusebox 2.0 offers Pro Shows.
