What People Say About ConvertKit Pricing

“It’s far from the cheapest tool on the market, but for what you get, it’s certainly not the most expensive, either.” – Authority Hacker

“Is ConvertKit worth the cost? I’ve been using email automation tools since about 2006, and I’m a happy customer of ConvertKit.  I think the cost of an email marketing tool is a necessary expense for an online business, and ConvertKit is a great option at a fair price.” – Niche Pursuits

“ConvertKit’s uses the same tiered pricing model as most other email services do. So the price goes up the more subscribers you have. When compared to its competitors, ConvertKit’s pricing comes out in the middle of the pack at lower subscriber levels. But as you get past 10,000 subscribers and beyond, ConvertKit actually doesn’t jump up as much in price as some of the rest.” – SmartBusinessTrends

“It is important for you to note that ConvertKit reckons a subscriber on multiple courses as a single diverse subscriber. This avoids you getting double or triple billed for a single subscriber on multiple lists like it is the case in Aweber and Mailchimp.” – MyThemeShop

“The good thing about their pricing is that it is based on the number of subscribers that your blog has. They bill you either monthly or annually based on your preference. All their plans are priced pretty decently, and it doesn’t feel like a big blow to your budget. Also, for each plan (other than the one that is for a subscriber list of more than 5000) you get a 14-day free trial. Beyond 5000 subscribers you will need to opt for their ‘bigger list’ plan, the pricing of which depends on what their calculator estimates. You could also opt for a free demo before signing up for the ‘bigger list’ plan.” – Sprout24

“ConvertKit’s pricing is a bit higher as compared to services like MailChimp. Having said that, the ROI with ConvertKit as compared to these cheap email marketing service providers is quite high. If you’ve got the budget, consider investing in something that can take your audience to the next level.” – DigitalGYD
