When does SurveyMonkey recognize revenue from
its Platinum annual subscription plans?
SurveyMonkey is an online survey company that allows its subscribers to customize and administer
surveys. It recently made the news for raising another $250 million in equity funding
(“SurveyMonkey is worth $2 billion after new $250 million fundraising round, Fortune, December 15,
2014.) (Note: SurveyMonkey is privately held. The founder says the company will not go public
because the related costs of being a publicly-held organization are too high.)
SurveyMonkey’s basic services are free and include the ability to customize a survey containing a
maximum 10 questions for up to 100 responses.
Premium plans are also available through SurveyMonkey. Features of the Platinum SurveyMonkey
plan include unlimited questions, unlimited number of responses, custom logos, and phone
support. The Platinum plan costs $65 per month and is billed annually on the starting date of the
plan for a total cost of $780.
