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 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.

My team LOVES Otter Waiver. It made the check in process for our customers quicker. With the QR code, Otter Waiver allowed us to go contactless which made our customers feel more secure during these crazy COVID times. I love that it also keeps our business legally covered with eSignature.
