ConvertKit pricing is easy to understand: all the paid plans have (almost) the same features. Their prices increase depending on the number of subscribers. Prices start at $29 a month for a maximum of 1,000 contacts, $49 per month for up to 3,000 subscribers or $79 monthly for a list of 5,000 contacts. They also have a fairly generous freemium plan for those with less than 1,000 subscribers.
They offer higher plans too. For example, if you have 50,000 contacts, you’ll be paying $379 monthly.
For customers with more than 5,000 subscribers, ConvertKit will offer a bonus perk: they’ll migrate your email list into their system for you at no cost.
Let’s check now the different features that ConvertKit plans offer.

Sadly, their pricing is one of the areas they could improve, especially if you take into account that ConvertKit lacks some crucial features (e.g. email designs and templates) – read our full review for more information. They are more expensive than average as you can see in our pricing comparison tool.
ConvertKit is a bit of a different tool as they primarily target bloggers and digital marketers – they describe themselves as ‘Email marketing for creators’. If you ask me, this is more marketing hype.
So (I assume) they target solo-preneurs or really small teams, that’s why it shocks me to see that their prices are among the highest in the industry. In other words, tools like ActiveCampaign or GetResponse (to us ‘The Ivy League’ of email marketing) are cheaper than ConvertKit.
Now that they have a free plan (which they didn’t always have), you can at least test out and benefit from many of their features with no added cost to your business until you go over the 1K mark. I also recommend you check out these free alternatives – most of these will be cheaper even when you move onto a paid plan.
Any confirmed email address added to ConvertKit will count towards your subscriber limit. They don’t count bounced contacts towards your limit, so you won’t be paying for subscribers that don’t receive your emails.
Yes, though they only recently launched it. It allows for up to 1,000 subscribers, customizable domain setup and unlimited landing pages.
On the paid plan you’ll access features like reporting, visual automation funnels, automated email sequences and will be able to migrate for free from another tool.
