ConvertKit vs. Substack

Looking for a new home for your newsletter? ConvertKit is the go-to email marketing platform for creators that can host, grow, and monetize your newsletter—and help you grow your business.

Switch from Substack to ConvertKit

Why professional newsletter creators love ConvertKit

With a fast growing and established newsletter, it’s time to graduate from Substack. ConvertKit is the platform that helps you take your newsletter to new heights with powerful features that are easy to use.

1Keep more of your earnings

ConvertKit has a transaction fee of 3.5% + $0.30 (including credit card fees), much lower than Substack—even if you’re on one of our paid plans. Better yet, selling a paid newsletter is not the only product offering you can have. From digital downloads to sponsorships, you can sell directly on ConvertKit.

2In-depth subscriber management

With a fast growing newsletter, you need to have better insights on where your subscribers are coming from, how engaged they are, and what else they might be interested in. ConvertKit’s tagging and segmentation allows you to slice and dice your list for perfectly organized content sending.

3Automate your relationship with subscribers

Introduce yourself to your new subscribers with automated welcome emails. Celebrate their subscription anniversary with you. Reactivate old subscribers or clean your list. Have it all working for you in the background while you work on your next newsletter edition.

4Amazing writing and design experience

As a newsletter creator, you spend most of your time writing. ConvertKit’s email editor gives you the most seamless writing experience without sacrificing design elements. Whether you send plain-text or designed newsletters—the choice is yours.
