I don’t even need database space, I’m just talking a custom domain, no watermark and a few other small stuff. Nothing special, just something I can afford
A few months ago, Bubble was doing some A/B pricing tests on new accounts, not sure if they got any good information from it. Nothing came after the testing was (seemingly) completed. Not sure if they just didn’t get the information they needed (since us Bubbler’s were quick to notice the pricing ambiguity and brought it up on the forums), or what ended up happening with it.
At one point, here was a pricing model:
In my mind, a lower price plan would be great for those wanting to use Bubble as a single-person startup or as a blog platform. That’s what drew me to a custom Wordpress solution - able to get a site online for a low price and scale as needed.
Anyone else have use cases in mind that an affordable plan would help meet?
Bubble is cheap emo, they can easily ask $60/ month for the services provided.
Just to give you an idea, the database with a restful api bubble offers is worth more than $100/month somewhere else, and you won’t be having more than 50,000 workflows available.
Bubble doesn’t limit the workflows, which is priceless.

@nocodeventure, I totally agree with you in terms of the more technical requirements for web apps using API calls and other such functionality. Bubble is an incredibly strong contender price-wise and gives a LOT of power for a great price.
Unfortunately, for those needing a no-code approach to a self-marketing/public profile site or blog site that needs SEO, custom branding/domains, and also low-level custom web app functionality, the $300/year plan is a bit “much” compared to cheaper options, especially because content marketing takes time to drum up business. That’s sad for those of us who really want to use (and support) the Bubble platform but aren’t established enough to afford it.
Someone wanting to start a “get to me know me” site that can then scale into a fully-fledged solution offering has to gamble a bit on the Personal plan, which is easier said than done if you are on a tight budget.
Reach out to support, if you’re a student they should be able to offer a discount? For a get to know me website, I’d recommend going for Wordpress, with typeform.
Yep! They offer 30% off for students and nonprofits I believe.
I’ve been looking into alternatives and so far I think Bubble is a top price/quality correlation. Though if they offer lower cost I think they just become more popular
