    What are some examples out there? And if you were to design the ideal pricing page, what would it look like? Could you share it with us?

      Do you charge annually? Then show the annual price. Do you charge monthly? Then show the monthly price. Do you charge daily? Then show the daily price. Do you charge per user? Then show the charge per user...

      Apologies for being crass, but his point is obvious and valid.

        No worries—I hear you. I've personally never designed a pricing page, and I'd definitely want to make it as clear and non-shady as possible, but I think it helps people to see a good example in the wild to draw inspiration from, especially when designers have a tendency to reference the most notable apps and services for inspiration, who might also be perpetuating this trend.

      Agreeing with @paavo on this one. Keep it simple, don't be tricky. Here's an example of one I worked on recently.
