GetResponse includes a wide variety of email marketing tools such as marketing automation, a landing page editor, and a template builder.
Unlike other newsletter tools, GetResponse does not have a free plan, but you can try their services free for 30 days. Their lowest tier starts at $15 / month for up to 1,000 subscribers. If you have more subscribers, you can get 2,500 for $25 monthly, 10,000 for $65 per month or even 100,000 for $450 a month. All plans include unlimited emails.
Below you can see a breakdown of their four main pricing offers:

You can use our price calculator tool to compare GetResponse’s prices with its best alternatives.
If your user list exceeds the number in your price plan, you are automatically bumped to the next tier. So if you pay $15 a month for the EMAIL plan and you get 1001 users, you will be charged an additional $10 the next month. This brings it to a total of $25, the price for the 2500 user tier and ensures none of your future contacts are lost.
You can cancel your account at any time. This will delete all your saved data though, so make sure you export your contact lists! GetResponse does not offer refunds, even if you cancel a day after subscribing for a plan.
Many of you will be comparing the EMAIL and PRO plans. The most significant difference of PRO is the Web Event Tracking feature, which lets you build automations around visitor paths on your website. Also, you can use the Webinar feature and CRM. So once you’ve reached 5,000 subscribers, it’s pretty much a no-brainer to switch to PRO as it’s only $3 more per month ($45 vs. $49).
GetResponse’s pricing based on the size of your mailing list makes it easy to scale things as you go along. This means the EMAIL plan should be enough for small companies and individuals who need robust marketing features without spending too much. However, for ecommerce and online shops, the PRO plan has the huge advantage of offering Web Event Tracking and the Abandoned Cart feature. If you see a lot of bounces on your checkout page, it might be worth focusing your efforts there and spending a bit more on your monthly plan.
Finally, if you are a large organization, you should only consider upgrading from the PRO plan to the MAX plan on a per feature basis. For example, if you don’t use Salesforce and don’t need DKIM integration, there is very little reason to move to the next tier. Sure, you get more team users, but you can buy 5 of them for much $20, which is way cheaper than changing plans.
GetResponse charges for active subscribers only. That means you won’t be paying for unsubscribed, bounced or otherwise deleted contacts.
It’s not difficult at all. You simply go into your Profile and select Billing. There you find a link that says “Cancel subscription”.
The only downside (a major one) is that it will lock you out of the account right away! That’s why you may want to set a calendar reminder to cancel just before the next payment is due.
