Bounce House is a small team of designers, engineers, and marketers who have been building software for more than a decade. Through our own experience with overwhelming, too expensive or cumbersome tools to do simple things like set up a quick website - Bounce House was born.
The list of alternative tools to use besides us is robust. From major players like Shopify, Wix, Squarespace, Wordpress, and GoDaddy, to smaller niche tools Strikingly, My Personal Trainer Website, UENI...the options are endless once you Google it!
There will be businesses and individuals who won't find use in Bounce House, and we know that. But if you're looking for a tool that helps you take a step forwards towards making your small business real, while not dwelling too much on fancy customizations or lamenting over hundreds of templates, we are here for you.
We support a website, custom domain, video hosting, mild branding stylization, a light blog, hooking out to third party payments, and a free plan that you can be on forever. The bigger players in the game are complex and confusing, can go from cheap to expensive very quickly, and don't have your small business goals and interests in mind.

We support first party payments, geared towards individual product or service checkout and invoicing or requesting payment of services from customers. For anyone who needs an e-commerce store that includes fulfillment and shipping, try a tool like Squarespace, Wix, Strikingly or WordPress. Or, you can use a marketplace like Etsy for your fulfillment and use any site builder as a landing page.
For a brand with extreme design customization needs, definitely lean towards WordPress, Squarespace or Shopify. With custom needs comes developer knowledge, make sure you know what you might want before you get in too deep without the right resource.
We offer a free forever plan, and a More Legit plan for $19/month. For businesses who use our first party payment, each transaction includes a 5% and $0.50 service fee in partnership with Stripe. It's transparent. Acquaint yourself with the other options, costs and features, see: Shopify Pricing, Squarespace Pricing, Wordpress Pricing, Wix Pricing, Strikingly Pricing, and UENI Pricing.
