Comparing paid ActionButton plans vs. the NationBuilder add-on

There are many advantages to purchasing the ActionButton add-on:

  • You will get a much lower price if you subscribe to ActionButton through NationBuilder.

  • You’ll have a single invoice for NationBuilder and ActionButton.

  • Your ActionButton data will sync with your nation for the eligible buttons.

How to get set up

If you don't already have a NationBuilder account, the first step is to start a free trial. For the simplest setup experience, make sure to use the same email address associated with your ActionButton account.

To add the ActionButton integration to your NationBuilder plan, log into your NationBuilder control panel, then navigate to Contact and billing > Add-ons.

After purchasing the add-on, you’ll see a link to "Set up your Action Button account"

If you used the same email address to set up both accounts, your existing ActionButton plan will be automatically converted to a NationBuilder add-on plan once the connection is finalized.


How do I upgrade my ActionButton plan?

You will be able to upgrade your plan in your nation control panel by navigating to Contact and billing > Add-ons > Manage Action Button.
