Salesforce pricing plans: What you need to know

In today’s competitive landscape, most companies can’t survive without some sort of sales automation technology — particularly customer relationship management (CRM) software. The past few decades have seen an evolution in tech-supported sales, and Salesforce has emerged as the leading platform for small businesses and major enterprises alike. In fact, Salesforce is practically synonymous with CRM.

Salesforce began as a basic CRM platform but has since grown into a cloud-based, comprehensive suite of solutions that streamlines everything from advanced sales processes to customer service to marketing and every aspect of generating revenue. Together, these solutions provide a centralized platform for tracking customer interactions, analyzing data, automating tasks, fostering collaboration among teams, enhancing customer engagement, and ultimately helping drive business growth. 

Salesforce updated its pricing plans in 2023, but the platform still offers incredible value. Read on for a breakdown of the different options available.

Salesforce pricing overview

Over the years, Salesforce has evolved from a single solution into a robust suite of products. Now, with so many offerings, the company sells each product separately. As of 2023, there are more than 12 individual Salesforce products. Within each of these products, there are a variety of Salesforce pricing options, including

  • Tiered pricing: This is based on the features and functionality needed. Each listed price is often per user or a range of users.
  • Custom pricing: This pricing is for larger enterprises with a high number of users and unique needs. Salesforce can customize the combination of features, user licenses, and support options to generate prices accordingly.
  • Annual discounts: The cost per month decreases when customers pay for one year of use up front.
