Thousands of freelance designers and agencies use Webflow to accelerate their design process and deliver better responsive websites faster. But managing client billing has never been easy. Until now.
Because today, we’re giving everyone who uses Webflow access to Client Billing.
To date, if you built and hosted a Webflow website for someone else, you’ve had to collect payments from them yourself. Or even worse, had to transfer the site to your client and lost the ability to collaborate, update the design, or charge ongoing fees to maintain their site.
But with Webflow Client Billing, you can now automate hosting payment management, keep control of the site, and — best of all — add on extra costs to cover maintenance fees or any other recurring payments you’ve set up with clients.
With our redesigned Starter plan — which now allows you to have unlimited Webflow-hosted sites without paying a monthly subscription to use Webflow — Client Billing enables freelancers and agencies that build sites for others to use Webflow at no cost.
Client Billing gives you the ability to:
Pass on all hosting costs to clients (SSL, collaborators, etc.)
Add on maintenance fees or any recurring costs you’ve set up with clients
Set up automatic dunning emails so your clients can keep their credit card up to date
Set up automated monthly billing (annual billing coming soon)
Today, Client Billing is available in seventeen countries, with more coming soon.
And this number will grow as Stripe adds coverage. (If your country doesn’t appear on this list, and you want to use Client Billing, check out Stripe Atlas, which enables you to easily incorporate a U.S. company and set up a U.S. bank account.)
An example of Client Billing
Let's say you built a client’s site with Basic Hosting (at $12/month), and that you add $20 a month for additional services, so the charge is $32/month.
The platform fee will be $3.20 (10% of your total added cost), and we'll add that to your client's total monthly charge, for a total of $35.20/month.
After we collect the charge from your client, we'll deposit $20 directly into your account (minus the credit card processing fee of 3–3.5%).
