Weebly Pro Review
Weebly Pro - What Not?
Unfortunately Weebly Pro package does not offer any additional options like premium themes and professional stock images. Also there are no additional ecommerce features and unlimited membership applicable to Pro users. Most importantly pro features like multiple column footer, header slideshow, site statistics, search, video and audio embedding can be added in a free weebly site without upgrading to pro either modifying HTML/CSS or using alternate options. Features like audio player and site statistics are not of core use to the webmasters to pay $12 per month. If you need more than one site with Pro features then you need to pay $12 multiplied by number of sites as Weebly Pro pricing is applicable on per site basis.
Weebly pro plan has the following restrictions:
- Header slideshow option was removed from all responsive themes.
- Up to 100 memberships without registration option.
- Up to 25 product elements and checkout on Weebly domain with 3% transaction fee.
- No option to sell digital goods and offer coupons.
Here are some important points for webmasters before considering upgrade to Weebly Pro account.
- Google’s Custom Search is free, powerful and you also have an option to monitize
- Google Analytics tool is free and incomparable with the Site Statistics options provided by Weebly
- Free footer can be removed and customized by modifying HTML/CSS for free
- Custom Header Slideshows can be created for free by modifying HTML/CSS
- Adding Favicon is easy by modifying HTML/CSS
- Video and Forums can be embedded using Custom HTML (Embed Code) element for free
- Free Weebly users can also have 10 sites per account
- Pricing is applicable on per site basis
- $8 for complete Pro features is too high where as the users can obtain many features for free with free account.
