Understanding the Cost of Elastic Path & Composable Commerce
As with any large technology purchase, the cost of an Elastic Path subscription and implementing a Composable Commerce approach depend on the scale of your project, your timeline, and your implementation strategy. There are three main costs to consider below:
Cost is based on transaction volume, either GMV or orders processed. If your business is doing $10M in GMV or less, pricing starts at $50K USD/year.
The cost of any new third party software, like content management or search, that you plan to compose with Elastic Path. Pricing dependent on partner and project.
This is dependent on the scope of your project and your implementation strategy. Most often, brands work with an SI to implement their commerce solution. At Elastic Path we can introduce you to an SI or work with your existing SI to create a quote.

Commercetools provides a set of hyper-granular APIs that are a fit for brands with a high level of technical maturity and minimal need for the business users to have control. They simply offer a set of technology, not the support and quick-starts that most brands will need to launch API-first, Headless Commerce. The Elastic Path offering makes it easier for brands to adopt modern, API-first commerce.Go to Comparison
Choosing between Magento and Elastic Path is similar to making the decision between taking public transportation to work, versus driving your car. If you choose to take public transportation, you may get the benefit of working while you travel; eliminating parking troubles; and avoiding possible traffic jams; but you may encounter crowded spaces during rush hour and less flexibility for timing. On the other hand, if you decide to drive, you have more flexibility and convenience to go and come as you please, but you could lower your productivity by sitting in traffic and searching for parking. No journey is necessarily better than the other, but depending on the experience you desire and what you’d like to achieve, one will be the better choice for you.Go to Comparison
