Appcues alternative

Hopscotch is the simple and affordable Appcues alternative built to onboard SaaS users with ease.


Appcues is a great user onboarding tool, but it can be quite complex to use and it comes with a steep price.

If your SaaS has simple needs (ex: product tours and welcome messages), or simply cannot justify the higher price point, then you will want to use an affordable Appcues alternative such as Hopscotch Product Tours.

Pricing comparison

⛔️ Appcues

Starts at $249/month

Depending on the number of monthly active users you have, the starting price could be $649/month or more.

✅ Hopscotch

Starts at $99/mo

Hopscotch plans scale with you as you grow. The starter plan is $99/month for unlimited tours.

Features comparison

Appcues and Hopscotch Product Tours both have similar features for building product tours and in-app messaging. They also both have advanced targeting capabilities in order to show specific messages to the specific user segments.

The Appcues builder can be difficult to use because it has many extra features for changing the look, feel, and placement of the messages. This can be overkill for many companies that really want something that is simple. The Hopscotch builder is simple and easy to work with.

Appcues has more advanced features, including checklists, but these features are only available in plans that start at $879/month paid annually. This is way out of the budget for many small businesses, and is largely why Hopscotch is a great alternative to Appcues.

You can try Hopscotch without a credit card or developer within your sandbox environment. This is available in your dashboard and does not need any code installation.
