Livestorm vs ON24: pricing

Livestorm's free plan never expires and allows users to test the full list of features that are accessible in the paid plans. On24 does not have a free version of their platform, meaning it is not possible to test-drive the solution before you commit to a plan. Livestorm's [pricing](https://livestorm.co/pricing) keeps it simple with its Pro plan at $89 a month. All integrations, features, and functionalities like on-demand webinars are included in this price. Attendees can be added on for extra fees as well as hosts. On24's pricing model is not transparent at first glance. On 24's pricing depends on the products you choose, the add-ons, and the features you wish to have in your plan. There is no self-serve option. Livestorm's Pro plan is perfect for businesses of any size with unlimited moderators, events, and registrants. Livestorm [Enterprise plan](https://livestorm.co/enterprise) includes 3,000 live attendees access, SAML SSO, and premium support. Since pricing is not public for On24, you have to contact sales to upgrade your plan.
