HoneyBook plans – which one is right for you?

HoneyBook pricing plans are designed to meet your needs at different stages of growth, so you’re only paying for what you need. Learn more about each plan to choose the one that fits your business.

Managing an independent business is all about freedom and flexibility, but that means investing in your work looks different from other types of businesses. You need the right tools that allow for customization, and you need them at the right price point. 

If you try to fit your business into systems with a “one size fits all” approach to pricing, you’ll risk money left on the table and tools you don’t fully use. 

That’s why HoneyBook’s plans are designed specifically for independents. To effectively manage your clientflow in the most efficient way, you can invest in HoneyBook as you scale and grow. Start with what you need and upgrade when you’re ready.
