Soapbox by Wistia is a webcam and screen recorder for Chrome. However, unlike StoryXpress, it’s not a wholesome video platform that lets you do everything video. The features are not very diverse and you may need additional tools if you are looking for an end-to-end video platform..

Your business deserves a feature-rich yet cost-effective video platform

Soapbox by Wistia has a free plan but that doesn’t offer much value. You can record videos but that’s about it. You must upgrade your subscription if you want to have access to the advanced features such as customizing your video pages with your logo. As opposed to StoryXpress, Soapbox’s free plan doesn’t even have essentials such as downloading videos.

Add to it the fact that Soapbox is not cost-effective. You can expect to pay remarkably more than what you’ll be paying with StoryXpress, doesn’t matter what plan you subscribe to. The plans start at $300 per year, whereas similar (and feature-rich) plans by StoryXpress start at $96 per year. Over time, these costs can add up and ultimately dig a deep hole in your pocket. StoryXpress is the more feature-rich, and cost-effective option for businesses of all sizes.

Looking for Soapbox Alternatives?

Here are a few reasons to consider StoryXpress:

Cost-effective Solution

StoryXpress is a cost-effective alternative to Soapbox. The plans start at $96 per year as compared to Soapbox’s that start at $300 per year. With StoryXpress, you pay less across all the plans while using the similar (or should we say better?) set of features.

Exceptional Support

If you seek priority support using Soapbox, you may have to struggle because Soapbox doesn’t reveal their support policy in any of their pricing plans. That’s not the case with StoryXpress, where you get priority support even if you subscribe to the Individual plan for $8 per month.

Accessible Essentials

Soapbox has a free plan but the essentials such as downloading and sharing the videos, annotating while you record and generating GIF thumbnails are not available. On the other hand, you get all of these essential features for free using StoryXpress.

Impressive Branding Options

Soapbox lets you customize the player color and your video pages with your company logo for $300 per year. However, with StoryXpress, you not only can fully-customize the video player, and video page but also set the player controls – all of this for $8 per month only.

Full-stack Video Platform

StoryXpress is a full-stack video platform. You get all the tools required for video recording, editing, and hosting in one place unlike Soapbox that requires you to buy two subscriptions – Soapbox for video recording and Wistia for video hosting and post-production.

Wholesome Video Editor

Using Soapbox, you can make quick edits by trimming the beginning or end of your video. But, that’s about it. You can’t crop the video frame or blur sensitive information, if recorded by mistake. Neither can you add intro-outro clips to your brand videos. You can do all of this using StoryXpress, though.

Custom Onboarding

If you are new to the world of videos and would like some hand-holding using Soapbox, you may be in trouble because Soapbox doesn’t talk about custom onboarding in any of their plans. That’s not the case with StoryXpress, where we help you get started with the platform even if you subscribe to the Pro plan for $39 per month.


StoryXpress seamlessly fits in your software stack and offers hassle-free integrations with leading SaaS products such as Pipedrive, ActiveCampaign, Calendly, CampaignMonitor, Freshworks, Sendinblue & more integrations created on-demand. If you use any of the above tools, you can’t integrate with Soapbox.


Soapbox lets you use two types of call-to-actions only. You may either include a link at the end of your video or book meetings directly from your videos. However, with StoryXpress, you get four types of CTAs that you can customize the way you want. Play around with buttons, banners, lead generation forms, and calendar CTAs; insert them wherever you want in the video and a lot more using StoryXpress.
