Changes to Buffer Publish legacy Business plans in June 2019

We're so grateful to have had customers with us through several iterations of the Buffer Publish product and pricing structure. On June 25, 2019, we retired our legacy Business plans and moved all of our legacy customers over to our current Business plans so they could take full advantage of all the new features being built there.

What changed

On June 25, 2019, if you were on a legacy Business plan, you would have been moved over to our current Business plan, with access to our updated interface and newest features.

You will keep your current price until your first billing date after October 1, 2019. On your first billing date after October 1, 2019, your price will increase to:

  • $99/month for the Small Business plan (or $1,010 if billed annually)
  • $199/month for the Medium Business plan (or $2,030 if billed annually)
  • $399/month for the Large Business plan (or $4,070 if billed annually)

Why we made the change

Our Business plans were first introduced in 2013. One of our more significant pricing changes occurred in the spring of 2016, when we increased the price of our Business plans in accordance with a number of new enhancements we'd added to the product in recent years. The prices changed as follows:

  • The Small Business plan changed from $50/month to $99/month
  • The Medium Business plan changed from $100/month to $199/month
  • The Large Business plan changed from $250/month to $399/month

This change only affected new-to-Buffer customers. All existing customers remained on their existing pricing plan. The updated prices became the new standard prices for the Business plans. As such, anyone on a lower-priced plan has been referred to as being on a legacy plan.

As we continue to evolve the product, we feel that we’re adding more and more value to the social media marketers we aim to serve. We hope you see it this way, too! As a result, many of the newest enhancements have only been available on current Business plans. Because of the value we’ve added over the last six years we believe that the current price of our Business plans more accurately reflects the value that the plan provides.
