Market Study: Pricing vs. Functionality

From speaking with hundreds of membership managers over the years, we’ve discovered that price and functionality are the two most important factors when it comes to choosing a membership management system.

So, in our survey of the market, we simplified all the options down to their price vs how many features they offer. You can see where each option falls in the chart below.

Price Comparison

Figuring out the cost of a membership management platform can be complicated, because many providers charge setup fees and other miscellaneous one-time charges, which can cause your first-year costs to be high.

With Wild Apricot there are no setup fees. Your costs for the first year and every subsequent year thereafter will always remain the same.

If you’re wondering which providers charge setup fees and by how much, here is a comparison of Wild Apricot vs Competitors:
