Frequently Asked Questions

What's the pricing?

The startup program is $39 per month (billed annually) for up to 5,000 contacts and 10 support seats, so that means you pay once and then you get the power of Gist All-in-One Premium for a full year.

How do I find out if I’ve been accepted to the Startup Program?

If you’ve been accepted to the program, you’ll receive an email with a welcome message and next steps.

How many users/seats do I get?

Your plan comes with 5,000 contacts (no limits there!) and 10 seats, with the option to add up to ten more seats at an additional cost for a total of 20.

What if I’m already a paying customer, can I still get this offer?

This is an offer that’s only available to brand new customers of Gist.

Can I pay monthly instead of annually?

At the moment, the Startup Program is only billed on an annual basis but that means you get the power of Gist for a full year no matter what! 

Can I try a version of Gist before signing up?

Yes, you can absolutely try the Free version (which comes with live chat only) by clicking here. We do recommend applying either way though since you pay after applying so you can have a couple days to think about it if you need.
