The Truth:
PandaDoc Pricing

Big system, lots of features, but one major flaw

PandaDoc Pricing

PandaDoc's pricing looks fair and reasonable on the outside. Lots of features for not a lot of money until you realize you get no integrations until you 5x your original spend. That's just the tip of the iceberg.

They won't allow you to whitelist your domain until you're on their Enterprise plan which runs into the thousands. This means every proposal you send essentially comes from PandaDoc instead of you.

There are no custom domain options on PandaDoc which means you're just an advert for their service. This kind of "growth hacking" worked nicely for Hotmail in 1999 but it's not appropriate for professional business software. Every proposal you send will have "PandaDoc" plastered all over it.

Here's the trick

Assuming you start on their seemingly generous 'Individual' plan at $9/mo, you can't simply upgrade to their $29/mo plan when you need to. You'll have to skip that one and jump right to the $49/mo plan as there are a whole host of basic features that aren't available on the $29/mo plan. This means if you aren't prepared to 5x your payment to them you'll be stuck. It gets worse: You got 2 users then you'll be $18 to $100.

Ultimately though, to get the really good stuff you need speak to a salesperson and be sold a custom plan.

PandaDoc doesn't produce the most exciting looking documents

Of course, design is subjective but from a visual perspective, which do you think is going to do you more good when sending to your client?

...or Better Proposals

When sending a proposal to a potential client, you want to build trust and the quickest way to do that (all things being equal) is by sending through an amazing looking proposal. If you send something that looks like a legal document with an attempt to win the business, it’s always going to be an uphill struggle.

Speed of sending

There’s always going to be a compromise. If you had unlimited time, you could make something look good in PandaDoc but what you really want are fast, efficient, quality proposals sent in minutes. That’s exactly what Better Proposals will give you.

You set all your branding up in one place and simply alter the content for your client each time. We have an unofficial tagline here which is ‘Just Write’. That’s all you’ll need to do - just focus on your client and their problems and explaining how you’ll solve them. Let us worry about the rest.

Zero learning, automatically designed, lightning fast.

Price

PandaDoc is not aimed at the freelancer / small business. That is evident and they brutally punish you in their pricing. They limit you to 5 templates and having over 70% of their features not available until you pay $39/month/user. If you want their mid-range plan with 5 users, it's going to cost you $195/month compared to $49 with Better Proposals.
