WHMCS 7.10: New Weebly Free Plan

By Matt / April 29th, 2020

In WHMCS 7.10, you can offer your customers a free Website Builder solution that is included by default with all of your hosting plans.

At WHMCS, we're always looking for ways to help our customers grow, and we think a website builder is a tool that every web host should be offering, and the new Weebly Free Plan allows you to do exactly that - give every one of your customers access to create a website using Weebly's Powerful Drag & Drop Website Builder FREE of charge.

What's included in Weebly Free?
  • Unlimited Pages - No limit on the number of pages you can create
  • Pre-made Themes - Access to a wide range of pre-made themes to choose from
  • 500MB Storage - Used for uploading photos, videos and audio files
  • Search Engine Optimization - Tools and features to help you rank higher
  • Lead Capture & Contact Forms - Create forms and gather emails for marketing
  • Community Support - Access to the Weebly community support channels
The Free Plan is ad supported with a Powered by Weebly notice displayed in the footer of websites. Users can upgrade to the Starter plan* or higher at any time to remove the branding.

How do I offer Weebly Free?
Existing Weebly resellers who upgrade to WHMCS 7.10 will have this option enabled by default and new users can activate Weebly to begin

If you are not yet offering Weebly to your customers, simply login to your WHMCS admin area and navigate to Setup > MarketConnect to get started.

Can I include Weebly Free by default?
Yes. As with all free products in MarketConnect, you have the option to include Weebly Free by default with all new hosting plan purchases made through WHMCS. The option is enabled by default for anyone who starts selling Weebly, and for existing Weebly resellers who upgrade to WHMCS 7.10 and later, and will result in Weebly Free being pre-selected during checkout:

To customise the include by default settings, navigate to Setup > MarketConnect, click Manage and then select the Other Settings tab.

What does this mean for Weebly Lite?
The new Free plan is being made available to all new and existing MarketConnect Weebly resellers and is a replacement for the Weebly Lite Plan.

The Weebly Lite Plan remains available however for those who are already subscribed to it and can continue to be used indefinitely for existing customers.

I don't see Weebly Free in MarketConnect?
You must be running WHMCS 7.10 or later to get access to the new Weebly Free Plan. WHMCS 7.10 was released earlier this month and can be upgraded to today. Learn more
