Buffer Publish has a number of pricing plans available. The Free and Pro Plans are ideal for individual users who are looking to schedule content to their personal social channels. The Premium and Business Plans are better suited to teams who are looking to schedule content for their brand's social channels, as well as having access to extra features like Drafts, Approvals, and Instagram Shop Grid. When choosing which plan is right for you, the deciding factors tend to be:
- The number of channels you're looking to schedule content to
- The number of users who will need access to the tool
- The number of posts you're looking to schedule in advance
- Whether or not you require features limited to higher tier plans
|Free||Pro||Premium (1)||Premium (2)||Small Business||Medium Business||Large Business|
If you need space to connect more than 150 channels or invite more than 26 users, we can offer you an Enterprise plan with custom pricing. Feel free to get in touch!
- All prices are in USD.
- We do not add VAT to our prices.
- All plans can be paid on a monthly or yearly basis. We offer a 20% annual discount on the Pro plan, and a 15% annual discount on the Premium and Business plans.
- All plans are subscription based and automatically renewed at the end of each billing cycle. You can cancel at any time.
- We offer a 50% discount to nonprofit organizations. All we'd need is a copy of your 501(c)(3) (or equivalent documentation) to get that set up for you.
