You have upgraded your subscription to Essentials. In this case you receive an automatic discount proportional to the time you have left in your active subscriptions. Upon successful payments the existing subscriptions are deactivated (expired) and your new subscription starts counting for a year.
We cannot give you a discount and extend your subscription time. If you think about it, what would happen if you bought an AKEEBABACKUP subscription today and immediately updated to ESSENTIALS? You'd have paid 60 Euros for two years of service for both of our major Joomla components instead of one year (Essentials costs 60 Euros for one year). So, it has to be one or the other but not both.
We chose to give a discount as this is what makes most sense. Again, think about having bought AKEEBABACKUP today and trying to upgrade to Essentials. We’d be charging you 60 Euros and you'd still not have access to Admin Tools for another year, making it pointless to actually pay us for the upgrade.
I hope this information helps.
