What will I actually be paying per year?

Annual billing is often tempting because it offers a per user price that is slightly lower than monthly billing. However, annual billing requires you to pay for a full year either in advance, or by the end of the service year. As such, the true cost of annual billing should factor in the entire year.

The prices bolded below are the total upfront cost for a full year, for the minimum number of users for that tier.

Pipeliner Starter

  • $25 per user per month
  • Because you are billed annually, your minimum upfront cost is 25 x 12 = $300 (for a single user)

Pipeliner Business

  • $85 per user per month
  • Because you are billed annually, your minimum upfront cost is 85 x 12 = $1,020 (for a single user)

Pipeliner Enterprise

  • $115 per user per month
  • Because you are billed annually, your minimum upfront cost is 115 x 12 = $1,380 (for a single user)

When should I pay monthly instead of annually?

While there are many reasons why you would opt to pay monthly instead of annually (for example, the ability to switch CRMs whenever you want), one of the more straightforward reasons would be the duration of time you plan on using a CRM.
