Okay, but how much does it really cost?
A Price Comparison of Membership Software
Figuring out the price of software can be a tricky business. Some companies charge extra for set-up, support, transactions, and more. At Wild Apricot we try to keep it simple, with a single fee (paid monthly or annually) -- but to give you a better idea of the real difference between us and the other guys, we've created an easy-to-read table and chart.
We've based this comparison on the needs of the average Wild Apricot customer -- an organization with 300 members, 3 users of the account, 500 transactions (that's donations or event registrations) with an average transaction amount of $20. Of course, your numbers will be different, but we hope this gives you an idea of the relative costs.
Here's the comparison -- Wild Apricot versus some of our competitors*:
