How Much Does PandaDoc Cost?
There are plenty of eSignature software solutions out on the market today — and one that’s been making a big splash recently is PandaDoc.
Like virtually every other eSignature solution out on the market today, PandaDoc offers a tiered service plan, broken down into four plans: Free, Essentials, Business, and Enterprise.
A lot of the information we’re going to present in this blog can be found on PandaDoc’s pricing page, but, is there any important information they don’t share on their website?
As it turns out, yes.

WHAT PANDADOC DOESN’T SHARE
First off, we need to clear the air — PandaDoc is a fantastic service that offers a great product, and will definitely provide you with the features you need to send proposals and collect signatures — but you might pay more for those features than you were expecting.
So, what are these issues that you can only find in PandaDoc’s fine print?
For context, most eSignature software solutions allow you to host a proposal in the cloud, on their domain. And for most of these services, once you’ve reached a certain level in their pricing structure, you can change the name of that domain.
For example, if a business was using DocuSign, their domain would read “yourbusiness . com / proposal.” (The spaces are placed there because it turns out that’s an actual website.)
For PandaDoc, however, this would read as “pandadoc . yourbusiness . com / proposal,” meaning everything looks like it’s coming from PandaDoc. This branding is also present in the proposals themselves — for every proposal you send out, PandaDoc’s logo will be present on the document.
The only way to avoid this is to pay for the Enterprise plan, which, as no surprise, is the most expensive option.
Now, these issues we’ve brought up are in no way a deal breaker — PandaDoc still allows you to quickly, easily, and securely send proposals to clients to collect eSignatures. But, be aware that your business will be sharing branding space with PandaDoc itself.
Now, let’s get to the good stuff. How much does each of PandaDoc’s pricing plans cost?
Out of all the free plans on the eSignature software market, PandaDoc’s Free plan is easily the most generous. This plan is free forever, and allows a single user to send an unlimited number of documents per month, and collect signatures and payments on those documents, with no limit.
Like virtually every eSignature software today, it also offers a mobile app, so you can send documents on the go.
For $19 a month (if bought on an annual basis), or $25 a month (if purchased monthly), PandaDoc’s Essentials plan offers all of the features of the free plan, plus access to pre-made templates, the ability to add rich media to your proposals, custom pricing tables, document analytics, and 24/7 support.
For $49 per month (if bought on an annual basis), or $59 per month (if purchased monthly), PandaDoc’s Business plan offers all of the features mentioned above, plus CRM integrations with HubSpot, Pipedrive, Microsoft Dynamics, and Zapier. Their Business plan also offers you to access previously-built proposals in a personalized content library, custom branding (on emails only), and simple workflow automation.
PandaDoc’s Business plan can also integrate with Salesforce, for an additional $10 per month. Also, through additional options, you can add forms to your proposals to collect information on your clients, and bulk send documents to clients. For both of these features, you’ll need to speak to a PandaDoc sales rep to find out how much it will cost you.
PandaDoc’s Enterprise plan offers all of the features listed above, plus Single-Sign-On (SSO) integration with Okta, OneLogin, Microsoft AD, Google Identity Program, and more. Through the Enterprise plan, you can also create unlimited workspaces to keep multiple team proposals organized, Salesforce CRM integration is included, upgraded analytics that allow you to look at individual usage activity, and the ability to integrate with third-party APIs (for an extra cost).
