Pillowfort currently asks for this registration fee as a way for us to cover our hosting fees, employee compensation, etc. while we are still working on putting our long-term business plan in place. Registrations will be free in the future once we introduce our premium features service, though we do not have an exact time-line in place for when that will be. If you purchase a registration key you will be able to request to have the amount you paid applied as a credit for purchasing premium features in the future.
Note that you can currently only create one account under a particular email address. If you want to create multiple accounts they will have to be made under multiple email addresses. You can also purchase keys to give to others. Your keys will be emailed to you as soon as your payment is processed.
