ThriveCart is a major actor in the online product industry as a checkout platform helping you sell any kind of product.

We’ll answer any questions you may have about its pricing and compare it to other competitors in the industry.

ThriveCart Pricing Overview

First off, understand that ThriveCart doesn’t have a free trial or free account.

What you do get is a 14 days refund policy.

ThriveCart offers 2 plan, the first one being the standard lifetime account

Then you can also upgrade to Pro for the following features:

  • Affiliate Feature
  • Subscription Saver Functionality (Dunning)
  • Sales Tax Feature
  • JV Contracts
  • Advanced User Management
  • Client Usage Rights
  • Custom domain name

The pricing of these plans is:

  • Standard Lifetime - One Time Payment of $495
  • Pro Lifetime - One Time Payment of $690

There is no recurring subscription fee to pay, it’s just a one off payment and you’ll get access to any upgrades of the platform.

How Does ThriveCart Pricing Compare with Competitors?

Let’s put these pricing plans in context now and look at 3 major ThriveCart competitors and how they price their platforms.

How does ThriveCart pricing compare to SamCart?

SamCart is probably the most direct competitor of ThriveCart and has a very different pricing strategy.

SamCart offers a 30 days money back guarantee and 3 plans:

The first thing to note is that this is a recurring payment (monthly or yearly).

  • Launch – $59/month billed annually (or $79/mo billed monthly)
  • Grow – $119/month billed annually (or $159/mo billed monthly)
  • Scale – $239/month billed annually (or $319/mo billed monthly)

Overall if you try to compare with ThriveCart directly, the monthly payment would be
$58 per month for the Pro plan but only for 1 year. Meanwhile SamCart payments recur every month.

How does ThriveCart pricing compare to SendOwl?

Another major competitor to ThriveCart is SendOwl and here again we have a very different way to price things.

You can start free for 7 days and then pay $1 for the next 2 months before joining one of the 3 plans:

You’ll notice that the main fee will be a subscription as well as a sales fee for each order.

These go as follow:

  • Starter – $18/month + 5% order fee
  • Growth – $37/month + $0.47 order fee
  • Starter – $89/month + $0.28 order fee

SendOwl might be relatively inexpensive depending on the volume of sales you make.

Overall if you only sell low ticket products, the order fee will start stacking up quickly…

How does ThriveCart pricing compare to Kajabi?

Kajabi is not technically a direct competitor to ThriveCart since it does a lot more than providing a checkout.

However since this is such a popular platform it’s worth talking about it here to compare.

Kajabi offers a 14 days free trial (30 days through the partner’s offer) and has 4 plans:

These are:

  • Kickstarter Plan: $69/month ($55/month paid annually)
  • Basic Plan – $149/month ($119/mo paid annually)
  • Growth Plan – $199/month ($159/mo paid annually)
  • Pro Plan – $399/month ($319/mo paid annually)

The main reason to upgrade plans would be for the additional features you might need.

Again Kajabi is a very different platform as its main appeal is being an all-in-one including checkout of course but also website and funnel building, course hosting and email marketing.

ThriveCart Pricing FAQ

Do I need a credit card to get started?

Yes, since there is no free trial or free plan on ThriveCart you will need a credit card and to pay in full.

Will I still get access to the platform's update and support after the 1 time payment?

Even though the platform charges a one time payment, you will still get upcoming updates at no extra charge.

You’ll also be able to access support, although it’s fairly bare overall…

Can I build a website or funnel on ThriveCart?

ThriveCart isn’t suited to build a full website. Or even to build a sales page or optin.

What you can build is a well designed checkout page as well as upsells and downsells.

What other cost should I be aware of?

As mentioned above, ThriveCart is not a substitute for a real website platform.

It’s also limited in its capacity to deliver an online program, see our ThriveCart Learn review.

So those would be things to consider in your budgeting.
