# Subscription Question?

Why does the 12 months Omega subscription say 12 months but the transaction receipt show 360 days?

Is there not 365 days in 12 months?

A 1 month subscription period is 30 days, not 30/31/28/29 days in actual months.

Then shouldnâ€™t the Omega time subscriptions say 30 days, 90 days, 180 days and then 360 days?

As it is now the Omega time is advertised as 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year. CCP should be more clear on what you are buying before the transaction is started, as it only shows the days bought on the receipt of purchase.

But it has been like this from time immemorial.

Well I am a new player and from fresh eyes on it, it is an issue that should be address.

@Ash_Beldrulf If you go to any convenient store and look at mostly any item price itâ€™s usually listed xx.95 (almost never xx.00), why do you think that is? and I donâ€™t claim to know the exact reason but I do believe that it has something to do with people only seeing the â€śxâ€ť's. So when they go to buy, may think itâ€™s maybe only \$7 when it is more appropriate to say itâ€™s \$8 instead.

If you have to be astronomically correct, there are 365.25 days in a year. The .25 is to account for the 1 extra day each 4 years. Excuse me for the math : 365.25 / 12 = 30.4375.

• assuming that you round up the average to 31, it will be off by 1,85%
• if you instead round down to 30 (like CCP), it will be off by 1,44%.

So mathematically averaging 30 days per month is a better representation of 1 year.

Most subscription-based services use 30 days to represent a month. Itâ€™s just a lot easier billing-wise

@ISD_Sakimura Itâ€™s a psychological thing. \$7.95 is perceived as significantly less than \$8.00 - even though thereâ€™s a \$0.05 difference. This is especially true when you get to multiple digits, ie: \$9.95 is perceived as less than \$10.00 and \$99.95 is less than \$100.00.

Sounds like an excuse from the marketing department.

â€śWere not really ripping you off, its just a more accurate representation for you to pay extra for less!â€ť

Itâ€™s 4 days (5 in a leap year). Get over itâ€¦

Actuallyâ€¦ if you truly want to be astronomically correct, there are 365.242 days in a year. Itâ€™s why 1900 wasnâ€™t a leap year. (The rule is: every four years is a leap year, unless the year is divisible by 100 but not by 400.)

If you want to be even more astronomically correct, youâ€™re going to have to specifiy how you define a year.

all banks work like this too
its always 30 days in calculation
so if you have 100\$ on the bank and you get 2% per month its 2% for 30 days but its called â€śper monthâ€ť " per year"
so ccp didnt find something new â€¦ they just used a common system

people are most likely spending money on things for 99.95\$ then 100\$ that has psychological reason â€¦ the number looks smaller â€¦ it is not but â€¦ well

^ and now you know why CCP defines a year in a quite simple way. Because other ways every Febuary we had the same discussion. But well, 5 extra days for a year subscription would be nice, of course, but it would be extra coding and probably they want to keep the sources for exploits as few as possible.

CCP stop stealing those five days from your loyal customers!
