1. Big Money Savings for your Business.

Drip and Gist have different pricing models.

Drip’s pricing is simple and solely based on the number of subscribers in your email list.

Up to 2500 and it’s $49/mo Up to 5000 it’s $122/mo 5001+ subscribers and price varies (a calculator is available)

All features seem to be included at every price point.

Gist has three plans.

Free: This is more of a test drive and allows up to 500 subs and limit access to other features. Full live chat is included in the free plan. Standard at $29/mo: This level gives access to support ticketing, qualification bots, knowledge base and more. Pro at $79/mo: Everything is available at our Pro plan level.
