Rather than pay subscriptions month after month, with ArDrive you only pay once to store your data forever. Most files such as photos, PDFs and Word Docs may only cost a tenth or hundredth of a cent.
Generally, you will end up paying around one cent for 4-6 MB of permaweb data.
For instance, this would workout to be about one tenth to one hundredth of a cent for smaller documents (50 to 250 kb), or about 2 cents for a larger audio file (10 MB).
And, remember, this is pay-once forever.
There are a few factors that cause fluctuations in the price, such as the price movement of the AR token but the network adjusts storage costs dynamically to keep costs predictable.
