In addition to the plans above, Strikingly offers a free plan with unlimited free sites. However, these sites and the customization capabilities of these sites are very limited. For example, if you open a store on a free site, you can only offer one product at a time. You are also limited to 5 GB of bandwidth and 500 MB of storage per free site.
The most popular plan, according to Strikingly, is the Pro plan because of its balance between features and cost. You have access to unlimited bandwidth, which is very important if you have more than a few thousand users on your site each month, and you will start unlocking customization options. Most business types will find this plan to work well, but e-commerce businesses with a lot of products may still find the VIP plan a better option.
Surprisingly limited plan
Strikingly’s limited plan is aptly named – it’s extremely limited. If you just need to publish a personal or temporary site, this can be a great option, but businesses won’t find the tools or features they’re likely to need with this plan. For example, you are limited to five products to sell on the site and you will be charged a 5% transaction fee for everything you sell.
Additionally, the bandwidth and storage space of the limited plan leaves a lot to be desired. You only have access to two sites and you are entitled to 1 GB of storage space and 50 GB of data per site. If you plan to drive a decent amount of traffic to your site, it will bog down and even exceed those limits fairly quickly.
Amazingly Pro Package
The Pro plan is the best value of all Strikingly plans. You’ll have access to just about everything you’ll need to launch a business site, except for some premium features like the live chat widget and the ability to send newsletters directly. Site subscriptions are unlocked at the Pro level, including paid subscriptions.
This is the best plan if you have a strong technical background and want to create custom code, as you gain this ability through the Pro plan and can upgrade the site a bit. Plus, you’ll only be charged 2% transaction fees on eCommerce items sold, but you’ll get access to all the great features that help close sales like pop-ups and product reviews.
Remarkable VIP package
The VIP plan unlocks everything Strikingly has to offer and should be considered for business sites looking to really make a big marketing push. You get access to five VIP sites through one plan, which means each site gets all the VIP features. This means you get 100 GB of storage and unlimited bandwidth for all five sites.
You will also unlock unlimited membership levels and advanced e-commerce features such as unlimited products, the ability to send newsletters, the live chat widget and 0% transaction fees. Plus, you’ll always get priority with Strikingly’s customer service team if you have any issues with your site.
