Price - Pay for what you use

At the SignUp Place, you only pay for what you use - starting off for free. That means the cost of our signups are almost always less than the monthly subscriptions on other signup sites annually.

For example, an agility club running 10 trials a season using the agility sample only pays $20 a year based on the Signup Place payment formula. The church in the church service sample runs a weekly signup (52 signups a year) for only $104 a year. Another agility club that uses The Signup Place software operates 3 giant trials a year with a signup sheet that involves 810 volunteer positions. They pay only $45 for the service each year.

How does it work?

You get three free signup sheets along with 20 free credits when you join. Credits are spent to activate (start) a signup template, the number of credits needed to activate depends on the size of the signup. The size of a signup sheet is determined by the number of sign up slots (takes) in the signup sheet.

A signup credit typically costs 25 cents USD, while activating a signup usually costs between four to nine credits. All product features are included on every signup, there are no functionality levels that cost more or less, no monthly or yearly subscription costs, only credits that are spent to activate/start each signup. You only pay for what you use. You never need to worry that your subscription will stop in the middle of a signup.

The number credits it costs to activate is displayed on the properties page of each signup template. Your current credit count is displayed on the top right in the administration interface, purchase additional credits by clicking the credit count. Each signup activation will cost the number of credits as indicated in the following table. A take is an available signup slot a member takes on a signup page.

Signup Take Count Credits Needed
1 to 9 takes 1 Credit  
10 to 14 takes 2 Credits
15 to 19 takes 3 Credits
20 to 29 takes 4 Credits
30 to 39 takes 5 Credits
40 to 49 takes 6 Credits
50 to 59 takes 7 Credits
60 to 74 takes 8 Credits
75 to 89 takes 9 Credits
90 to 104 takes 10 Credits
and so on for every 15 takes.

The formula for number of credits needed is (TruncateDecimal(takes / 15) + 4) over 60, or (TruncateDecimal(takes / 10) + 2) between 20 and 60, or TruncateDecimal(takes / 5) under 20.

Groups contain members that take up space in the database and generate more emails costing us more. The cost of each credit increases as the number of members in all your groups gets larger. The $0.25 credit cost applies when you have a total group population under five hundred members. At five hundred and over, each credit costs an additional 25 cents for each five hundred members. The credit cost is calculated when you purchase credits based on the population of your existing groups.

The following table shows some example costs for an organization with different numbers of members.

Total Member Count Cost of each Signup Credit
up to 499 $.25
from 500 to 999 $.50
from 1000 to 1499 $.75
from 1500 to 1999 $1.00
from 2000 to 2499 $1.25
from 5000 to 5499 $2.75
from 25000 to 25499 $12.75
from 50000 to 50499 $25.25

The cost formula for a credit is ((TruncateDecimal(memberCount / 500) + 1) * .25) USD
