Visual Composer offers a free plan for users to immediately access a select set of Visual Composer’s creative hub. The free plan gives its users one website with limited customization options compared to premium sites. Visual Composer offers limited templates and element options for its free users, with only the premium plan allowing unlimited downloads of any element from Visual Composer’s library. Premium is required to access the library of stock images from Unsplash that you can use within Visual Composer’s creative hub.
The visual components for free users are heavily restricted, with 30 elements and ten templates instead of the hundreds provided for premium users. Features like the theme builder, header/footer/sidebar customization, and dynamic content are notably omitted from the free plan.
Ultimately, Visual Composer’s free plan is very restrictive when compared to the paid options. Many of the plugin’s most touted features are absent from the free program and what the free plan offers is a limited window into what Visual Composer is capable of. The plan may be usable for a smaller business not looking for a fully customizable experience, but companies looking for a unique site will need to look at one of Visual Composer’s premium packages.
When you upgrade to the premium version, Visual Composer unlocks the full creative library of over 300 elements and over 100 templates. Along with previously mentioned features, the premium version also adds Visual Composer’s popup builder and provides WooCommerce support for companies that want to conduct business through their site. You can find the complete comparison of offered features between Visual Composer’s payment plans on their website.
Visual Composer offers three separate pricing plans alongside the plugin’s free version. For $49 a year, users gain access to Visual Composer’s complete website builder, allowed for use with a single website. The second tier of Visual Composer’s premium plans upgrades the contents to three websites while increasing the price to $99 per year. Visual Composer’s highest price point is intended for Developers and provides up to 1000 sites with the plugin’s complete offerings at a rate of $349 per year. Visual Composer also promises a 15-day money-back guarantee, allowing you to receive a full refund if it doesn’t work for your intended purpose.
Visual Composer offers WordPress users a broad suite of creative options to fully customize their business’s website. The plugin features a wide variety of elements and templates to start the design process and an entire library of stock images to use within a company’s site. The plugin has multiple tiers of payment plans, including a limited free-to-use plan, for companies of many different sizes and needs.
