Pur Social vs. Buffer

4 October 2021

A Strong Alternative

Pur Social and Buffer are both social media scheduling tools with great features. With so many options to choose from, what makes us different to this industry giant.

Key differences

What sets these two apart


Buffer offers a pay per social channel system with limitation on users and reporting depending on the plan. For 5 socials, without reporting and only 1 user Buffer bills $30 p/m. For the same features, Pur will charge you only $11 p/m. Including Buffer’s Team Pack add-on, drives their price to $12 per channel. Pur bills a fixed price of $20 p/m with up to 20 social accounts to use. With most business operating at least with 3-4 social accounts, Buffer will cost them double the price we offer at Pur.


Buffer offers a range of great features to improve your social media management. However, some of them a available depending on your plan. At Pur we like to give you full control of all features, regardless of the plan you choose.

Social Networks

When it comes to flexibility in terms of social media, there really aren’t many options on the market to beat our range. Buffer offers all the standard platforms like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn. However, in addition to those we offer Telegram, VK and Odnoklassniki. These combined amount to well over billion monthly users.
