ConvertKit vs. Bento

ConvertKit is a fantastic piece of software that we're proud to call a competitor — but you're looking for options which is why you've landed here.

Bento is the definitive alternative to ConvertKit

Why? Well, for starters, Bento has been carefully designed for small, nimble marketing focused teams who work in online business like eCommerce and SaaS — those who need to move fast without their tooling getting in their way.

ConvertKit, on the otherhand, was originally designed for creators who run online publishing businesses.

ConvertKit is designed for creators who run email newsletters, not eCommerce stores or SaaS apps. This has lead to product decisions of theirs being focused on what happens AFTER you get the email address. Whilst ConvertKit offers a compelling suite of email marketing tools, so does Bento. Additionally, Bento is an all-in-one platform meaning you don't have to connect us to any other integrations to get your job done.

We find most brands switch from ConvertKit because they want more power, for the same cost.

Below is a short breakdown of the features in both products. We ask you to compare yourself.
