Refunds, cancellations, and subscriptions

A guide to buyer and seller pricing plans and cancellation instructions

Last updated: April 6th, 2024

Buyer plans

You can choose from three buyer plans depending on what you want to do.

  • Basic is our free plan where you can view all public listing information. You can't view private details or chat with founders. Basic gives you a feel for the marketplace.
  • Premium is $390 per year and gives you access to startups of up to $250k TTM revenue. You can chat with founders and request access to their private details. Premium is ideal for first-time acquirers or if you expect to acquire smaller businesses.
  • Platinum is $780 per year and gives you access to startups of all sizes, including those we manage for a fast, easy sale. You also get priority support and startup recommendations. Platinum is for pros who want the biggest and best deals. 

To learn more about what each plan offers, compare buyer plans on our pricing page.

Cancellations and refunds

When you subscribe to Premium or Platinum, you accept that your subscription fee is charged automatically and on a recurring basis until you cancel your subscription. 

We’re confident you’ll love either subscription plan, but if you ever want to cancel, please let us know on or before the payment due date

Contact us with your cancelation request at support@acquire.com, and we’ll get it done for you. You’re welcome to upgrade again anytime. 

Please note, we don't give refunds if you’ve been a subscriber for longer than seven days, nor do we issue prorated refunds for canceled subscriptions.

Do you offer free trials?

At the moment, we don’t offer a free trial of our paid plans. The Basic plan allows you to see the quality of startups on offer, including financials, and we're confident you'll think the upgrade worth it. Your buyer subscriptions help us build better tools and resources, and we’re reinvesting everything into creating the best marketplace for you.

Seller plans

From April 17th, 2024, you pay a monthly listing fee to list on Acquire.com plus a closing fee when (and if) you sell. The listing and closing fees vary depending on your asking price.

Here's the breakdown:

Asking price Monthly listing fee Closing fee 
Up to $250,000 $25 6%
$250k - $1M $50 5%
$1M+ $100 4%

To learn more about seller pricing, please visit our seller pricing page (please note the above pricing won't appear on this page until April 17th, 2024).

Cancellations and refunds

We'll automatically cancel your monthly listing fee when you get Acquire'd. Or, you can cancel your monthly listing fee at any time by permanently unlisting your business. 

Unfortunately, we're unable to give refunds of the listing fee under other circumstances due to the time and effort spent in preparing listings for the marketplace.
