How Much Does Tendenci Cost?

Tendenci is the Open Source Membership Management Software that gives you freedom from the proprietary vendors. Thus the price starts at zero. Yes really. It is 100% Open Source GPL and can be downloaded at - no bait and switch or withholding key components. The real deal and the code is all there for you to download, review and self install if you wish. And it can't be taken away from you. Ever. Even if you host with us (and we hope you do!) you can still move to your own server later. Because it is YOUR site, isn't it?

For the non-programmers, with Tendenci, there is NO per member cost and NO per admin cost. You simply choose how much processing speed you need for your organization. We handle the details for you.

Set up costs vary in price depending on depth of your project and design needs. Check out our professional services offerings and contact us for a quote!
