ConvertKit pricing is easy to understand: all the plans have (almost) the same features. Their prices increase depending on the number of subscribers. It starts 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 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.
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 Active Campaign or GetResponse (to us ‘The Ivy League’ of email marketing) are cheaper than ConvertKit.
You have to consider that there’s no free plan, which means you have to start paying straight away – unlike with these free alternatives. However, if you really want to try it out, there’s a 14-day trial period and a 30-day money back policy – so you can make up your mind whether or not it’s worth the extra you’re paying for it.
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.
