GoHighLevel allows its platform to be sold as SaaS, and PipelinePRO is a customized version of that.
Here’s how they compare.
What Is GoHighLevel?
GoHighLevel is an all-in-one marketing, sales, and customer relationship management (CRM) platform aimed specifically at marketing agencies and professionals.
The platform boasts an incredible number of features, of which most can be used on an unlimited basis. Additionally, if you subscribe to the Pro plan, you can add your own branding to the GoHighLevel platform and sell it as software as a service (SaaS).
What Is PipelinePRO?
PipelinePRO is a version of GoHighLevel that is being sold as SaaS.
It includes all the CRM features such as pipeline management, calendars, and reputation management, and a limited number of marketing features including the website and funnel builders.
Is PipelinePRO the Same As GoHighLevel?
Essentially, yes. PipelinePRO is the same as GoHighLevel since it is the exact same platform and infrastructure.
The only difference is the number of features you get and the platform’s branding.
When GoHighLevel is sold as SaaS, you can create pricing plans and sell it for whatever price you want.
You can also pick and choose which features to include (although some features such as 2-way text and email conversations, reputation management, and GMB messaging and tracking are mandatory inclusions).
Therefore, PipelinePRO is a customized version of GoHighLevel which does not include all the platform’s features.
GoHighLevel vs PipelinePRO: Cost Difference
PipelinePRO is supposedly sold for a one-time fee of $37. The website claims that you get all the platform’s features included with no additional monthly fees.
However, multiple online reviews state that once you pay the lifetime fee, you are then charged for using features or you are required to pay more to get full use of the platform.
We tried to contact PipelinePRO to get full pricing information, but we only received a generic response via email. It was impossible to reach a live agent.
GoHighLevel is available for an ongoing subscription rate. It has three plans available in total, though you can only access two if you are not yet a subscriber.
The third plan is available as an upgrade once you have access to the GoHighLevel platform.
|Access all features and create up to three sub-accounts
|Everything in Starter plus unlimited sub-accounts, API access, and branded desktop app
|Everything in Pro plus you can sell GoHighLevel as SaaS

GoHighLevel vs PipelinePRO: Customer Support Differences
When we tried to get hold of PipelinePRO, it was impossible to reach a live agent. All we got was an invite to watch a pre-recorded demo video or to schedule a 20-minute call with a PipelinePRO specialist. When we tried to do that, there were no available slots.
There’s a phone number on their website, but when we tried that (multiple times), no one answered. PipelinePRO members can only access email ticketing support.
Other support comes in the form of demo videos which provide an overview of the platform features.
GoHighLevel’s customer service used to be sub-par, but recently they have made excellent strides in improving this area.
Live chat and the support phone line are always available, plus there are plenty of ongoing live events and webinars you can participate in.
Best of all, support staff are always willing to jump on a Zoom call with you so they can walk you through platform specifics and troubleshoot on the spot.
There is also plenty of training material available in the support portal.
However, we often find that these are outdated because the platform consistently changes and new features are always being added.
GoHighLevel vs PipelinePRO: Pros and Cons
- Transparent and upfront pricing
- Full access to platform features on all plans
- A true “all-in-one” platform for marketing professionals
- Responsive and helpful customer service team
- Excellent online customer reviews
- Platform is regularly updated with new features
- The platform does require a learning curve
- Training material can be frequently out of date

- Limited version of the GoHighLevel platform
- Could not get hold of a live customer service agent
- Bad online customer reviews
GoHighLevel vs PipelinePRO: Final Verdict
Given that PipelinePRO is GoHighLevel SaaS and it appears to have unclear and dishonest pricing strategies, we say it’s far better for you to directly purchase a subscription from GoHighLevel.
GoHighLevel’s pricing is transparent, they have responsive customer service, and you get full access to the platform on all plans.
Where this comparison is concerned, GoHighLevel is the clear winner.
