Ever wondered, ‘how much does Sitecore cost?’ We share what you need to know about Sitecore pricing
Sitecore offers some impressive features and flexibility, but, how much does Sitecore cost?
When Sitecore has been deployed correctly, marketers often see an impressive ROI for every £1 invested in the platform. A recent study showed that Customer Experience is a competitive advantage and beats price eight to one and product, two to one.
As the Sitecore (DXP) is customisable, Sitecore pricing is reflective of the bespoke build for each organisation. No two builds are ever the same and so an organisation’s requirements can dictate the cost.

If the above seems a bit confusing, don’t worry! Sitecore will provide a lot of guidance as to your possible options.

Following a discovery process, a project will usually consist of an initial build with further phased development stages to then deliver additional functionality.
The partner chosen to implement this initial phase of development is crucial to the success of the project.
The ease of update and expansion are determined by the foundations laid at this stage. Additional time and money spent in this period of development can result in important savings later on in the development roadmap.
Maintaining good service to customers is crucial following the launch of any Sitecore project. A Sitecore hosting and Sitecore support package can be tailored to your exact requirements. The costs will usually be based on the number of servers you have and your traffic volume. Hosting and support will be an annual, ongoing cost.
