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Weebly Pro was the initial highest level premium plan offered which was subsequently superseded by Business plan.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.
