Otter Waiver vs WaiverFile

Otter Waiver makes pricing easy.

Otter Waiver’s simple pricing prevents you from paying high overages that you’ll encounter with WaiverFile. WaiverFile pricing is like playing Jenga: if you go over your plan, you are paying $0.50/ signed waiver, and if you are under you could be paying anywhere from $0.10-$0.50. If you switch plans mid-season during a high-use month, and forget to switch back, you’ll be looking at higher costs.

When it comes to monthly fees, chances are you are overpaying if you aren’t hitting the max amount of waivers each month for 12 months straight. Even if you are, you’ll find Otter is the more affordable option. You would have to hit the max number of waivers each month in 2 of the scenarios below to get a better deal at WaiverFile.

WaiverFile: the more waivers you have each month, the more you pay

WaiverFile’s plans all have limits on usage. Go over your usage and pay $0.50 per waiver signed. Stay below your usage pay anywhere from $0.15-$0.40 per signed waiver. You would have to be an amazing juggler to balance your numbers each month perfectly.

WaiverFiles’s base plans are cheap for anyone starting out — $15 a month for 150 waivers. But keep in mind that means your commitment for the year is $180. Not the best price when you are an outfit signing less than 1,000 waivers a year.

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.

I am so grateful for the ease and security of Otter Waiver. It is easy and intuitive to set up, easy to send to clients, and easy for them to fill out. I work in a field where time is of the essence, and having them sign the waiver before they show up expedites the process and allows for greater overall enjoyment for everybody.

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.
