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 association with 350 members
  • 3 admin 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.
