ActiveCampaign is a wonderful email marketing platform. It has enough features and tools to go head-to-head with the likes of Klaviyo and MailChimp. But, ActiveCampaign pricing structure can leave you scratching your head. It offers multiple plans with various subscriber tiers. So, which is the best plan to get you the highest return on investment? Here is an in-depth breakdown of all the plans and the features they offer to help you choose the best one for your brand. 

ActiveCampaign Prices

ActiveCampaign prices offer four plans to its prospects, and each of them has a different pricing structure. Now, the four different pricing plans are-

  • Lite 
  • Plus
  • Professional 
  • Enterprises 

The Lite plan starts at a deceptively low price of $29 per month. Since ActiveCampaign has a very limited and restricted free plan, it needs to keep the prices for the starter plan low to lure in customers.

The next pricing tier is known as the Plus plan. It offers additional features and is probably the most popular plan for customers. Most prospects will try out the Plus plan as it offers a valuable CRM feature. This plan starts at $49. The starting price of a plan is kept close to the Lite plan to entice the user into getting the better plan.

The Professional plan comes next and is priced at around $149 per month. ActiveCampaign claims that this plan is their best seller and is preferred by all.

Email marketers get to enjoy a host of different features and functionalities that help them streamline their marketing strategies. And, lastly, you get the Enterprise plan that is only reserved for companies wanting to scale their marketing efforts in a short period. To get an accurate estimate for your enterprise plan, you need to contact the customer helpline.

Understand this, the prices mentioned above are only the starting prices and will increase as the number of contacts increases. Here is a table that shows different monthly prices for different subscriber levels.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. Can I clean my subscriber list with ActiveCampaign?

Yes, ActiveCampaign offers an Engagement Management tool that aids in cleaning your subscriber list. This tool helps identify and eliminate subscribers who have not opened your emails in a specified period or those who have never engaged with your emails at all. This ensures a more responsive and engaged audience for your campaigns.

2. Does ActiveCampaign have a free trial?

Yes, ActiveCampaign offers a 14-day free trial. However, this trial does come with certain limitations. Specifically, users are restricted to a maximum of 100 contacts during the trial period and can only send up to 100 emails. This allows prospective customers to evaluate the platform’s functionalities and determine whether it aligns with their marketing needs before fully committing.

If you are looking for a Free Plan, ActiveCampaign does not have one.

3. What is the email sending limit of ActiveCampaign?

The email sending limit with ActiveCampaign is quite generous. You have the liberty to send an unlimited number of emails to up to 250,000 contacts. But note that as your contact list grows beyond 250,000, the number of allowed emails is 10 times the number of contacts. For example, if you have 500,000 contacts, the sending limit is 5 million monthly emails.

4. What is the setup or onboarding cost of ActiveCampaign?

ActiveCampaign does not charge any setup or onboarding costs. You can start your email marketing campaigns by subscribing to a paid plan. Any plan would give you free online training and support, digital onboarding, templates, and guides to set up various email campaigns and automation.

5. Can I create landing pages with ActiveCampaign?

Yes, you can. ActiveCampaign includes access to many landing page templates that you can use to kickstart your campaign in minutes. You can also create custom designs with the easy-to-use drag-and-drop editor. However, please note that landing pages are not included in the Lite Plan. You would need at least the Plus Plan to access it.

Can You Get a Discount On Any ActiveCampaign Plans?

Of course, if you are opting for an annual payment, you can enjoy a discount of up to 30% on the original plan price. Non-profit organizations get another 20% on top of the previous discounts. 

Add-Ons For Your ActiveCampaign Plans

Add-ons for your ActiveCampaign Plans

ActiveCampaign does offer a few add-ons for which you have to fork out extra cash. For some users, these hidden charges might push them overboard their allocated marketing budget. But, some of these add-ons are worth every penny. 

For example, ActiveCampaign offers an add-on called Conversations that helps you establish a website chat feature in your online stores. Irrespective of the number of contacts in your ActiveCampaigns, this add-on feature only takes an extra $19 per user per month. 

Which Is The Best ActiveCampaign Plan For Your Business?

ActiveCampaign actively promotes its Professional plan as the most popular plan. But, on closer inspection, you will notice that most of the advanced features offered in the plan will not be used by the majority of the users. Therefore, a Professional plan is recommended for seasoned brand email marketers who know their way around these tools. 

Now, the Lite plan is the best for entry-level marketers who just want to experience what ActiveCampaign has to offer. It is also the best option for brands looking to manage a limited number of contacts. 

By the process of elimination, you can see that the Plus plan offers the best features compared to its pricing structure.

For example, with this plan, you get access to CRM and automation features that enable you to handle and effectively communicate with a larger audience. 

Comparison of ActiveCampaigns Prices With Other Email Marketing Automation Platforms

ActiveCampaingn’s pricing is very similar to that of Klaviyo. But, Klaviyo is slightly more technical and feature-rich compared to ActiveCampaign.

On the other hand, ActiveCampaign is easier to use and best suited for beginner email marketers. In the same vein, if you do not require any automation, you are better off using Mailchimp or Mailerlite as they offer more cost-effective plans for smaller businesses. For more  information check our detailed comparison between ActiveCampaign vs Klaviyo.


Choosing the right  ActiveCampaign Pricing plan can be quite complicated because of the various combinations of subscriber count and different features. Hopefully, this guide can help you choose the right plan for your email marketing efforts. You can also consult InboxArmy, one of the best email marketing agencies to assist you during the plan selection process. 


Q1. Does ActiveCampaign Have Any Free Version?

No, there is no free version of ActiveCampaign. However, it does offer a 14-day free trial to all its paid subscribers. 

Q2. Is The Cheapest Plan of ActiveCampaign Worth It?

The cheapest plan, the lite plan, enables you to connect with 500 email contacts for just $29 per month. This plan is completely worth it for solopreneurs looking to increase communications with their customers. 

Q3. What Is The Average Monthly Cost of Using ActiveCampaign?

According to ActiveCampaign, the Professional Plan is their most popular plan. So, it is safe to assume that the average monthly cost of using ActiveCampaign is around the $140 mark.
