I have a few clients who are wanting an Ecommerce website designed and built which is something I’m really looking forward to, these are the projects I’ve spent months learning webflow for. The problem however is that when I tell them the pricing for hosting an Ecommerce site on webflow, none of them are even remotely interested, especially when they already know the prices of a Wix or Squarespace Ecommerce site.
Webflow: $42 per month - 500 item limit - 2% transaction fee - 3 staff accounts - $50k limit annual sales.
Squarespace: $24 per month - unlimited items - 0% transaction fee - unlimited staff accounts - unlimited sales.
- Squarespace also offers giftcards, customer accounts, products on instagram, $100 google adwords credit, promotional banners etc. all included in this price… There’s a clear winner!
So my question is this, has anyone else found this to be a problem and how did you work around it? I can’t even bring myself to try and persuade them to host with webflow. As soon as they hit the $50k annual sales mark they’re going to have to upgrade to the $84 per month account ($1008 a year!) - this just seems ridiculous to me. Is there anything I can tell them other than it will be a custom bespoke account? Because I can’t see any other benefits. Thanks!
