Is there 20USD PLAN?

My current plan is 50USD per year with 25GB storage. For my personal usage it's too expensive.
Is there 20USD plan for just 1GB or more storage? I didn't mean the 30USD plan which doesn't support personal domain yet.

Unfortunately I think the plan you are on is the cheapest and it is discounted when you come to pay it...

There are only three Fastmail plans. You can add users (or quota, which is priced in increments of one additional users), but you can't reduce the quota below the plan amount. See the plans here:
https://www.fastmail.com/pricing/

As Terry said, you can get a discount if you purchase a plan for a longer interval. For example, here is the $US pricing for the Standard plan (which is the lowest cost plan which allows use of your own domain):

1 month ($5/month) $5
1 year ($4.17/month) $50
2 years ($3.75/month) $90
3 years ($3.61/month) $130

The discount schedule for the Basic plan (which does not allow use of a personal domain) is:
1 month ($3/month) $3
1 year ($2.50/month) $30
2 years ($2.29/month) $55
3 years ($2.22/month) $80

If there was a US$ 20/year plan it would cost $1.67/month. As you can see above, there is no plan that inexpensive. The minimum discounted plan which offers use of your own domain would be a Standard 3 year term for $3.61/month. That would cost $1.94/month over your limit. I'm not sure about your finances, but email is so important to me that I gladly pay US$0.12 per day ($3.61/month) for a Standard account.

There's the Pobox (a FastMail service) Basic at USD 20 per year.

That’s only forwarding (and a little more). No mail storage.

If you are on an old fastmail plan, when you click pay it will give you a discount, you can chose how many years with 5 max I think.

I'm paying about $15/year for a legacy "full" plan due to renewing for several years at a time. Its limited to 1GB and CardDav (no CalDAV or personal domains). Meets my needs. But you can't sign up for it, all you can do is renew the plan if you're already subscribed.
