Disciple’s plans are a little more complicated:
Unlike Disciple’s expensive in-app purchase processing fees (30% to Apple or Google), Circle fees are as low as 0.5% + Stripe standard processing fees (these vary by country).
Circle offers you features that Disciple just doesn’t have. It is the best community platform designed to keep your community engaged and interacting with one another while monetizing your content.
Circle keeps things seamless for you and your community. It’s the community building app that keeps its desktop and mobile devices experience the same. It keeps you from having to edit each person’s experience. It makes creating online communities a piece of cake.
