How do your various plans compare?

Our Basic plan gives you a powerful online storefront from which to offer genealogical research services to your clients. With the Transitional and Professional plans you get targeted advertising support for your profile, lower project fees, and additional tools to make your client interactions simpler and more convenient. The Small Business plan is aimed at research firms who want multi-user capabilities and business-class analytics.

What's the Project Fee?

Whenever a client pays you for research services, Genlighten keeps a portion of the payment you receive as a commission or "Project Fee". For the Basic plan, the fee is 20% of the project invoice amount. As you upgrade to the Transitional or Professional plans, the fee drops to 15% and 5%, respectively. Basically, the subscription plans get you more clients and they let you keep more of what you make from those clients.

How's the free trial work?

When you sign up for the Transitional or Professional plans, you get 30 days to try out the plan's full features with no monthly charges. A few days before your trial period expires, we'll e-mail you to let you know. If you want to stick with the plan you've trialed, you can use a credit or debit card to begin your paid subscription. If you decide to change to the Basic plan, you won't need to pay any subscription fees. All projects clients start with you during your trial period will be charged the project fee associated with the plan you're trialing.
