Since respond.io was launched in 2017, we’ve upgraded our infrastructure and introduced features that have greatly expanded the scope and utility of our platform. These advancements have made respond.io the top choice for conversational sales and marketing. However, for a product to be great, it must also be sensibly priced. That's why we are now testing an experimental pricing model based on the value you receive from respond.io.

| Company | Contact | Country | |---------|---------|---------| | a

| b

| c

<p><table><tr><th>Company</th><th>Contact</th><th>Country</th></tr><tr><td>a</td><td>b</td><td>c</td></tr></table></p>

<p><table><tr><th>Company</th><th>Contact</th><th>Country</th></tr><tr><td>a</td><td>b</td><td>c</td></tr></table></p>

We'll clear up any questions you might have about this promising experiment, ensuring you have all the information you need to continue growing with us confidently.

Pricing that Scales with Your Business

Businesses often incur unnecessary expenses with their customer conversation management software due to limited customization and rigid upgrade paths. Consequently, they might pay for features they seldom use or let go of essential tools for their operations because the costs are prohibitive.

In a market saturated with all-or-nothing solutions, respond.io stands out with a value-based pricing model. What sets our pricing apart?

  • Adaptive to business growth: You only pay for what you need, aligning costs directly with your actual business requirements.
  • Scale at your own pace: Scale your growth sustainably without sudden cost spikes.
  • Clear costs: Transparency aids in planning and budget management, helping your business scale smartly.
  • Fair for all sizes: No matter your business size, you can get the best out of respond.io.

In addition to three subscription plans, we implement value-based pricing through two primary metrics: The number of Monthly Active Contacts and the number of Users. The sections below detail how this works.

Respond.io Pricing: Three Subscription Plans for All Business Needs

Increase or Decrease Monthly Active Contact Tiers as Needed

Monthly Active Contacts are a key-value metric for our pricing plans. Monthly Active Contacts are Contacts that have sent or received a message (excluding broadcasts) over the billing month. We believe our pricing should correspond to the value we provide. Each chat with a contact is a potential sales opportunity, and our Monthly Active Contact pricing model ensures you only pay for the contacts you engage with.

There are four reasons why this matters to your business.

  • You’re not restricted by the number of total Contacts you can have
  • You don’t have to pay for the Contacts you don’t speak to
  • Your pricing will scale with the number of Contacts you actually talk to in a month
  • You don’t have to delete Contacts and lose their conversation history

Growth and Advanced plans include 1,000 Monthly Active Contacts by default and allow businesses to increase or decrease Monthly Active Contact limits without switching plans, providing the flexibility to start strong and scale within their chosen plan as their business grows.

The reason behind this decision is simple: If you only need more Monthly Active Contacts, why should you upgrade your plan and pay for features you won’t use?

On the other hand, Starter plans offer unlimited Monthly Active Contacts, ensuring new Users can build their contact base without constraints.

Add or Remove User Seats as Needed

Users are the last key-value metric in our pricing plans. A respond.io User is someone granted access to an Organization’s Workspace. Recognizing that businesses of various sizes have different User requirements, we want to make it easy for you to scale them up at your own pace without incurring unnecessary costs.

Each plan includes five User seats by default. Similar to our Monthly Active Contact tiers, you can add and remove Users individually as your needs grow without changing your subscription plan.

<call-out> Manage your subscription plan directly from your respond.io Workspace. Simply navigate to Settings > Billing & Usage to add or remove Monthly Active Contacts/Users or change your subscription plan according to your needs. <call-out>
