What is a grandfathered account?

Ontraport allows existing clients to retain their old pricing, while new accounts are charged based on Ontraport’s current pricing model. If you keep your current plan, you’ll also keep your old pricing. Clients who do that have what we call “grandfathered pricing.” Ontraport has only changed pricing for existing clients once since 2008. That increase occurred in June 2023.

Ontraport accounts that were created before June 30, 2022 are considered grandfathered accounts. If your account is grandfathered, you can upgrade or downgrade your account level between grandfathered plans. However, you cannot switch your grandfathered account to one of Ontraport’s current plans. 

If you would rather have one of Ontraport’s current plans, you need to open a new account and migrate all your contacts and assets. However, you will not be able to migrate historical data, such as sales reports and contact automation logs, to your new account. 

If you would like to migrate to a new Ontraport account, reach out to our team to discuss this process. Please note it is not possible to return to your grandfathered subscription plan from a new account plan.

How can I tell if I have a grandfathered account?

Back to top

If you signed up for your account after June 30, 2022, you do not have a grandfathered account.

However, not all accounts created before that date are grandfathered. Some older accounts have been upgraded and are no longer on a grandfathered subscription package. If you are unsure if your account is grandfathered, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Ontraport account as the account admin.
  2. Go to Your accountAccountChange Subscription.
  3. You’ll see your current subscription selected. If your account is grandfathered (or great-grandfathered), you’ll see a tooltip labeled “grandfathered” at the bottom of the pricing screen. Note, it will be labeled “grandfathered” for both grandfathered and great-grandfathered plans.

Users are the people who sign in to your account. Individual users have their own username and password combination.

$47/month per additional user seat

Additional contact packages

Back to top

Each grandfathered subscription package includes a specific contact limit. Check out the “Grandfathered subscription package information” chart to view your account’s contact limit.

If your account is an Enterprise level or above, and you exceed the 20,000 contact limit (this includes custom object records with an email field), we will automatically add an additional contact package to your account.

• This pay-and-go option allows you to keep collecting and storing your additional contact information and keeps your automation running.

If you have a lower account level and exceed your contact limit, your account will be automatically upgraded to the next account level.

• You will receive a notification email when you are approaching your contact limit. If you remove the extra contacts, you can downgrade your account before the next billing cycle.

Please note that custom objects that contain an email field count as contacts in your account.

If your account exceeds its contact limit, then…

The account is automatically upgraded to Plus.The account is automatically upgraded to Pro.The account is automatically upgraded to Enterprise.The account automatically purchases an additional contact package — $99/monthper additional 100k contacts.

Additional email for enterprise accounts

Back to top

Each grandfathered subscription package includes a specific number of emails in each billing period. Check out the “Grandfathered subscription package information” chart to view your account’s email package.

If your account exceeds your allocation for email sends, we will automatically increase your email allotment to keep your automation running.

• This pay-and-go option is ideal if you do not consistently require extra emails each month.

If your account exceeds its email allocation, then…

Bulk email packages for enterprise accounts

Back to top

Enterprise level accounts and above can add additional email packages to their account. This subscription will recur every month and is best if you routinely need extra emails.

  • 500k email sends for $399/month

To add a bulk email package to your account, email

Account rollbacks

Back to top

If you mistakenly delete data or assets from your account, you can request account rollbacks to recover that information. Ontraport saves deleted data for 90 days. If the data you’ve deleted is outside that 90 day window, we can attempt to recover your data; however, we cannot guarantee 100% data integrity.

  • To request a rollback for your account, email with the subject line “Grandfathered account rollback.” 
    • A member of our Concierge team will reach out and gather more information about your request.
    • Once your details are confirmed, rollbacks generally take between 5-7 business days.

Restoring custom object data

Back to top

Restoring data from your custom objects requires a full restoration of your account. Your account’s info is “rolled back” to the most recent backup, essentially sending your account back in time. That means any new information you’ve added since that backup date will be lost, and your automations may re-fire.

Restore a canceled account

Back to top

The cost for each account rollback is $50. If your account was previously closed for non-payment, you must pay your outstanding charges within 30 days of the restoration.
