Before You Begin
You may find it helpful to get a general sense for the various plans Weebly offers before getting started. Here’s a quick peek at Weebly’s pricing and plan tiers:
We’d rarely recommend the Weebly Free or Personal plans for businesses because sites built with them must include Weebly branding. But, small start-ups on a really tight budget could potentially make the cheaper plans work while they establish their businesses.
Best Features in Each Weebly Plan
Here’s a summary of the best features included in each Weebly plan:

The Weebly Personal Plan
The Weebly Personal plan is the least expensive paid plan Weebly offers. It costs just $72 per year when you pay on an annual basis. While this plan provides a custom domain instead of a Weebly subdomain, your website will still have Weebly branding.
Here’s what you get with the Weebly Personal plan:
- A Custom Domain: Weebly’s Free plan forces you to use a Weebly subdomain like “mybusiness.Weebly.com.” But, you get your own custom domain like “mybusiness.com” with the Weebly Personal plan. Need help choosing a domain name? Use our domain name generator.
- Website Security With a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificate: Have you noticed when you visit some websites that you see the phrase “Not secure” in the address bar? That’s because the website lacks an additional layer of security that protects data sent through it, such as when someone makes a purchase or completes a form. All Weebly websites come with a free SSL certificate — a huge plus!
- Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Tools: For search engines to find your website, you must complete some SEO fields for each of its pages and images. Weebly provides all of those necessary SEO fields. Check out our SEO 101 article for more details.
- Basic Website Features: All of Weebly’s plans allow you to create a blog, add YouTube videos, photo galleries, and slideshows, as well as collect information via contact forms and opt-in newsletters. You’ll also find hundreds of free and paid apps in the Weebly App Center you can add to your site to increase its functionality.
- The Ability To Add Third-Party Embed Code: If you plan to use a third-party app to collect email addresses, book appointments, or perform other services on your website, Weebly allows you to embed that app on your site. You simply need to obtain and insert a piece of embed code from the third party app.
- Ecommerce Solutions: You can sell physical items on your website with any Weebly plan, but, with the Weebly Personal plan and other paid plans, you also can sell digital items like courses, ebooks, and other files. Unless you purchase the Performance plan, you must use the Square payment processing platform (Square purchased Weebly in 2018). You can sell as many items as you like plus Weebly will automatically calculate sales tax for you and help you manage your inventory.
- Customer Support: With the Weebly Personal plan, you can access help via email, chat, and the community forum. But, you don’t get phone support.
The Weebly Personal plan costs $9 per month. For an even better deal, sign up for the annual plan. Paying annually comes with a 33 percent discount, which reduces the total cost to $72 per year.
Ideal Users of This Plan
The Weebly Personal plan works best for individuals or non-professional businesses, such as a babysitting or dog-walking service. Anyone who wants to appear professional needs a site that displays their business’s branding, not Weebly’s. Yet, this plan does provide a lot of great features and allows you to have your own domain. That makes it a good option for some.

The Weebly Professional Plan
The Weebly Professional plan, at only $144 per year, is the plan we recommend for most small businesses. It gives you what you need to have a professional presence online.
The Weebly Professional plan includes all of the same features as the Weebly Personal plan plus:
- Unlimited Storage: While the Weebly Free and Personal plans only give you 500 megabytes (MB) of storage, the Weebly Professional plan includes unlimited storage.
- Advanced Site Insights: While the Weebly Personal plan will tell you how many people visited your site, the Weebly Professional plan shows you where they came from and what pages they viewed. This plan also provides several key sales analytics.
- Your Own Branding: The biggest benefit of the Weebly Professional plan is that it removes Weebly branding from your website. You can have your own favicon (a small icon in the browser tab) with no annoying Weebly pop-up section.
- A Free Domain: If you decide to purchase your domain through Weebly, you’ll get it free for the first year.
- A Custom Footer: With the Weebly Free and Personal plans, you don’t get a customized footer. Instead, your visitors will see “Powered by Weebly” in your footer. With the Weebly Professional plan, you can create a custom footer. Another benefit of using Weebly, in general, is that there’s no footer template so you can include whatever information you want.
- Phone Support: Weebly offers phone-based customer support with its Professional and Performance plans.
- Enhanced Website Features: In addition to the basic website features included in the Weebly Free and Personal plans, the Weebly Professional plan also enables you to add high-definition (HD) video and audio files, a search box, and use a video in the background.
- Membership Support: If you want to limit access to certain pages of your website to only specific members of a group, you can designate some pages as “Members Only.”
At just $144 per year when you pay annually, the Weebly Professional plan is a great deal.
Ideal Users of this Plan
We recommend this plan for most small businesses because it provides all of the functionality you need — unless you run a large ecommerce store. (Shopify offers the best option for large ecommerce stores.) With your own business branding, SEO tools, and a whole lot more, this plan is where you should start.
Check out the Weebly Professional plan for as little as $12 per month.
The Weebly Performance Plan
The Weebly Performance plan ideally suits larger online stores. In addition to the advanced site insights offered by the Weebly Professional plan, the Weebly Performance plan provides advanced ecommerce insights.
The Weebly Performance plan includes all the features of the Weebly Professional plan plus:
- A PayPal Payment Option: Because Square owns Weebly, it prefers that websites built with Weebly use the Square payment processing platform. But, you’ll have the option to use PayPal instead if you have the Weebly Performance plan.
- Product Reviews: People love to read reviews about products before making a purchase. The Weebly Performance plan allows your customers to leave reviews for items in your online store.
- Advanced Ecommerce Insights: In addition to the website traffic-related statistics that come with the Weebly Professional plan, the Weebly Performance plan provides ecommerce insights focused on store and product performance, email engagement, referral traffic, and more.
The Weebly Performance plan costs $29 per month. For an even better deal, sign up for the annual plan. Paying annually comes with a 10 percent discount, which reduces the yearly total to $312.
