SmartWaiver: the more waivers you have each month, the more you pay.

Smartwaiver’s free plan is limited to one month. The moment you hit your max waivers for the month, you will be charged a lot for overages or have to balance when to upgrade to the next plan. Smartwaiver’s base plans are 4x more for any small company starting — but keep in mind, the price is recalculated according to the number of waivers used as your business grows.

OtterWaiver: only pay for what you use and enjoy unlimited features

With Otter, the only minimum is $10 = 100 credits to buy to reload your account. So if you are an outfit serving 500 participants expect to pay for what you use which might only be $50 for the year. Otter’s entire pricing structure is based on the number of waivers signed, not a locked in monthly subscription. Most businesses save close to $400-$1000 or more from switching to Otter Waiver.

Otter gives you the flexibility to grow your business as large as you want. Once you’re ready to scale up your signing volume you can purchase in bulk or ask about our committed use plan.

We have been using paper waivers since we started National Cleanup Day because of the cost to go digital. Otter's Non-profit freemium version allows us to reduce our paper consumption with volunteer waivers and collect donations at the same. Win, Win.

We have been using Otter Waiver for the last few months at Astro Paragliding and The Free Kiting Clinic, it's been liberating. No more paper waivers, improved productivity on site all with an easy, intuitive phone application. I especially like the QR code.

Otter Waiver has saved us time, not only on the guest piece of signing waivers but also on our staff. Our staff spent hours and hours going through paper waivers and files to find a previous waiver, and now we spend zero time finding a waiver.
