When comparing Bento with Customer.io people typically ask the following questions before they make the switch to Bento
- I am on a grandfathered plan. Can you match it?
- Yes, we can match your plan with a competitor but it depends a tiny bit as we want to ensure we're profitable with every deal we do (i.e we don't match AppSumo deals). Just send us an invoice so we can confirm that we can do it.
- Can I bring all my data to Bento?
- It depends on how you've set things up but generally yes. During migration we can help you port all your setup over to Bento but may have to do it in a more 'Bento-way' as every platform is different.
- Can I try before I buy?
- Yes, we can try your plan for free for a month. If you don't like what you see, just 1-click close your account.
- How long does a migration take?
- 90% of migrations are done within a day. The remaining 10% depends on the complexity of your automations, mostly.
- Do you offer startup or charity plans?
- We do offer charity discounts and we offer discounts to bootstrapped startups.
- Do you charge based on emails?
- Nope! Just identified visitors (unique count of visitors with emails). We try not to micro-manage your pricing.
- Are there any hidden fees?
- Nope! You pay for identified visitors and that's it.
