Weebly offers five different types of plans in order to fulfill various categories of users. Each plan has a set of features and targeted for particular segment of users. Before upgrading to any plan it is necessary to check how much it will cost for you and what are the features you can get more compared to a free plan. In this article, we will compare all Weebly pricing plans and the list of features you will get under each plan. We also listed down the free alternate options available for the pro features so that you can think before you purchase premium plan.
All Weebly Pricing Plans
Earlier Weebly was focusing on content websites with free, starter and pro plans. After Square acquired Weebly, the primary focus is changed to offer integrated ecommerce features and combine the Square payment with all Weebly premium plans. Unfortunately, Weebly consistently changes their pricing plans without prior notification to users. At this moment below are the plans offered by Weebly. The performance plan is renamed as business plan in some regional locations and offered with modified features.
- Free Plan
- Personal Plan (earlier known as Starter plan)
- Professional Plan (earlier known as Pro plan)
- Performance Plan (offered as a Business Plan in some regions)
Below is the picture showing earlier pricing plans in USA.
However, the latest pricing plan includes four plans with changed names / pricing as below.
Let us explore each plan in detail to understand the features.

The personal plan will cost you $6 per month per site for the annual plan. Though starter plan is one of the preferred options for building a site with Weebly due to cost vs feature comparison it has the following limitations:

Weebly Performance Plan
Weebly had an additional performance plan but now it is not available in US region anymore. Therefore, we assume this will be discontinued and combined with business plan.

Pro Features Rating and Alternate Options for Free Users
Weebly Pro was the initial highest level premium plan offered which was subsequently superseded by Business plan. Pro plan is the most suitable plan for most of the users who do not have a need to run an online store. The major problems in the Weebly Pro pack is that many of the features can be achieved either by modifying HTML/CSS or by using alternate free options. The other problem is that even with the Pro upgrade, you will miss important eCommerce and membership features and upgrading to Business plan needs 3 times more money than a Pro plan.
Here is the rating of the Pro features and alternate options available for free users. Learn complete list of Pro feature here.
|Weebly Pro Features||Rating||Alternate Options for Free Weebly Users|
|Audio Player||Poor||Audios from SoundCloud can be embedded with playlist option|
