There are several other alternatives to Slider Revolution and RoyalSlider on the market which I have compared in separate articles. Go to my main WordPress Slider Plugins comparison to start your search.

Please note that this comparison only looks at the features on paper as reported by either plugin’s developers. It does not and can not tell you if or how well a certain feature will work for you. Because such a verdict would depend on too many variables, including your server setup and personal preference, I have decided to stick to the hard facts for this feature comparison between Slider Revolution and RoyalSlider.

Even if many of the features compared above overlap between the two competing products there is one very important difference: Slider Revolution as well as RoyalSlider both provide a unique interface from which you will create powerful image slideshows that slide through multiple pictures. Since it is hard to rate the quality of such an interface objectively I recommend that you try both products yourself before deciding for one.

Slider Revolution vs RoyalSlider Price Comparison

WPscoop indexes the exact prixing plans of all compared plugins. Please refer to the table below for a quick overview of the prices of Slider Revolution and RoyalSlider.

To find the cheaper slider plugin for your individual needs please go to my main comparison article. There you can search for the features you need and then see the exact price you would need to pay for Slider Revolution or RoyalSlider (as well as other alternatives).

Price Slider Revolution RoyalSlider
Minimum (1 Site) 18.00 USD 22.00 USD
Maximum (1 Site) 18.00 USD 22.00 USD
Minimum (10 Sites) 180.00 USD 220.00 USD
Maximum (10 Sites) 180.00 USD 220.00 USD

Explanations: The minimum price compared above is the lowest price a product is available for, e.g. the version with the least features. The maximum price listed is for a version of the product that includes all features. For plugins that charge per addon it factors in the cost of all available addons. For some products the price increases if you want to use it on more than 1 WordPress site – the listed price for 10 sites shows if that is the case.
