Postini does smaller non-profit online orders now! (Mostly)

Thanks to Rob Shaw from Greenwood Christian Church [1] for commenting [2] on my last post about Postini [3] and letting me know that Google has released Postini at non-profit pricing for their two lower-tier (Message Filtering, $3/year/user before 66% discount, and Message Security, $12/year/user before 66% discount) messaging solutions! Their highest tier, Message Discovery, adds message archiving and is normally $25/user/year with one year of message retention. Message Discovery can still be purchased by non-profits with the discount for orders over $1500, with web-based ordering coming soon still, but web-based ordering for smaller shops has been released [4] for those two lower tiers!

That’s great news Rob, thanks for the heads-up!

Maybe I’m missing something, but I still don’t see where you can select non-profit status online for ordering. :(

I haven’t ordered yet. But I assume you click the Order Now buttons in blue at the top of the screen and go through the steps. It’s on the “education” pricing page; the “retail” page is different and allows online ordering for all three types of account. Google Apps and Co. have always grouped “non-profit” in with “education” accounts, because education came first and they decided to open it up to non-profits as well, later. I assume they verify status later on in the signup process…let me know if you find anything more solid! I will, if/when I get the time to sign up, hopefully soon.
