Our Pricing

No Hiding Our Pricing. No Subscriptions. No Plans. No Monthly Fees.

We only make money from processing fees. We keep our fees low by having a self-serve and easy-to-use platform. Processing fees can be paid by your registrants, absorbed by your organization, or split 50/50. Give donors the option to pay the processing fee to make their donation go further. Registrants can save even more when purchasing as a family or a group. Our processing fees are charged per cart total — not per ticket or registration.

When your event is free, so is the processing fee. There are no processing fees for free events. Free is free.

Save Money. Fees are Per Transaction – Not Per Runner

Discount on Signing Up Together

Because we charge runners by transaction fee and not per runner, participants can claim a significant savings by registering as a family or group.

Flexible Processing Fee Options

We allow Race Directors to set flexible payment options for race, donation, and store fees. Processing fees can be paid by the runner, absorbed by the race, or split 50–50%.


Keep donation costs down with a simple donation processing fee of 4%. Donation processing rate is dependent on a race’s organization type and choice of payment option.

Our easy-to-use, subscription-free platform saves you money

We’re more than just registration (for free)

Yes, we provide technology for registration, but the value of the RunSignup platform is more than that. Every customer gets free websites, free email, free built-in marketing tools, a free RaceDay Day app, a free photo platform, automated sales tax management, chargeback management, and more. No upselling and no limits.

No subscriptions, no monthly fees, no long-term contracts

Our only revenue is from processing fees, meaning you’ll never pay a subscription or monthly fee. And because we only want happy customers, there are no long-term contracts – you’re free to use our technology for an event with no commitment.

Low fees

Despite our robust set of features, we keep our fees low with an easy-to-use self-serve platform. This helps keep your costs down, and comes with another benefit: you have full control over every aspect of your event.

Families and Groups Save More

Our processing fees are per cart total, not per person. This means families and groups who sign up together together save money – a real benefit if you’re using pricing strategies to encourage bulk ticket purchases!

Free events are free

No cost to the event? No processing fee. Free is free (for once).
