A simpler Podia alternative that's actually affordable
Next-generation design, simple setup, and a feature-rich platform for your business, for just a fraction of the price.
- Spin up your very own storefront in less than a minute, and start selling instantly. Unlike Podia, SellApp lets you create a storefront for free, without having to purchase an expensive store subscription.
Save Over $1790/yr
- That’s the amount that you'll be saving when switching from Podia’s top plan to SellApp. You'll get the features you're familiar with, plus some new ones, to help run and level up your business. All at a fraction of the cost.
- Time to switch from Podia's bloated interface to something that's better and simpler to navigate. No longer do you need to traverse a dashboard maze just to get something simple done.
Why creators are making the switch to SellApp from Podia.
Podia is good, really good, if you want to sell courses and need complex workflows that involve quizzes, students, and communities. For other use-cases, not so much.
The Podia dashboard interface is too bloated for almost every other digital creator. It's too complex to traverse and manage. Podia also has a steep pricing structure, starting at $39 to start and going up to $180, which means many creators are simply priced out from the start. There are also some other factors to consider when deciding between SellApp and Podia:
- If your business grows and you want to add store/support staff, Podia charges $20 per additional staff. SellApp on the other hand charges $0 and lets you add as many support staff as you like.
- Podia does not support website embeds natively like SellApp does, unless you upgrade your store to a more expensive plan.
- To remove branding from your Podia storefront, they require you to purchase an even more expensive plan that costs $179/mo. With SellApp, you can remove branding with our premium subscription that only costs $19.99/mo.
Podia started as a great platform, but they've focused too much on too many features. That has resulted in them being 'okay' at many different use-cases, but not 'excellent' at any of them.
Podia or SellApp?
Compared to SellApp, Podia is better for you to use if you were to want to sell courses, or if you need to create workflows that are complex. If, on the other hand, you simply want to sell digital downloadables, subscriptions, text/serial based items, or services, SellApp is the clear winner.
SellApp: The next-generation platform for selling digital goods
Like many, we are unhappy with the way digital goods are sold online, especially given complex platforms that are bloated with unnecessary features like Podia. SellApp is our definitive answer to them. We're the next-generation platform for selling digital goods that is 10x faster, better, and cheaper than anything else on the market.
Sure, both platforms allow you to sell digital downloads and have similar features like subscriptions, unlimited resources, and fast support. But we also already offer so much more. From cryptocurrency payments, to free store staff and more.
