ConvertKit Plans & Prices: Are They Worth It?

ConvertKit Pricing

ConvertKit Pricing Summary

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 price is one of the areas they could improve, especially if you take into account that ConvertKit lacks some crucial features (e.g. 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.

Additional ConvertKit Pricing Information

  • The free plan includes 30 premium landing page templates.
  • There’s a 30-day refund period, no questions asked.
  • When your friend creates an account, you both can grow your list by 100 more subscribers for free.
  • ConvertKit will let you purchase either monthly plans (you pay each month) or yearly plans (pay in advance for one year).
  • If you decide to go with a yearly contract, you’ll get a 16% discount. However, you won’t get your money back if you choose to cancel the account.
  • If you go over the limit of your subscription plan, you’ll be automatically bumped to a higher level.
  • No hidden fees, you won’t pay extra for storage, or other random services you don’t need.

Conclusion

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 solopreneurs 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.
