Plan Comparison Charts

Since 1983 Neotrope® has delivered effective public relations, content development, and brand marketing. Launched in 2000, Neotrope's Send2Press® Newswire service offers press release writing and targeted news distribution, with our 30+ years of expertise “baked in” to every project.

Choose from two plan levels
depending on your needs and budget.

Standard Level Plans
Our classic Standard Plans are designed to provide the “most go for the dough,” particularly if you're budget-conscious but still want to reach traditional U.S. print and broadcast media by email, traditional wires like AP, and top social media; plus guaranteed online placement in both the Financial Content Network (including sites like Boston.com, PE.com, WND.com, etc.) and the Neotrope® News Network (including sites like CaliforniaNewswire.com).

Standard Plans start at $99 for a single U.S. state distribution, or a true national distribution for just $199 – both include photo, video, clip report and social media campaign ($99 value; 2,500 views first 24 hours is typical). No membership or subscription fees. 

Premium Level Plans
Our Premium Plans (formerly called Extended Plans) combine the best of what Send2Press® does with the addition of premium distribution offerings from our strategic partner, PR Newswire® (PRN). Our value-add packages give you more features – including multimedia and social media marketing – at a lower cost than using PRN directly.

A true Premium national U.S. distribution starts at $395 with push to 4,500+ media by email, plus 5,600+ websites worldwide (half the cost of other major newswires!). Our Premium PLUS plans add all the extras from PRN including IRW, PRN for Journalists, “comp trades,” and enhanced Visibility Reporting dashboard. All with no membership fees.

How to Order and Important Information
  • How to Order:
    All Services are pre-paid and ordered online through our Online Order Center, which is PCI-DSS certified fully secure. Our payment gateway is powered by Authorize.net, which is owned by VISA. We do allow phone orders for existing U.S.-based clients, for our “National” level plans only.
  • Business Hours:
    Our normal business hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, Pacific Time (PST/PDT, California, USA); closed weekends and major U.S. holidays.
  • Scheduling:
    You may schedule a release to push over the wire either default of “ASAP” same-day, which is typically 1-3 hours depending on time of day and workload; or you may schedule for future day/time such as 7 a.m. EST/EDT. Our Online Focus and Premium National LITE plans cannot push same-day.
  • Payment Methods:
    We accept all major credit cards. Optionally, you can pay with PayPal (except international clients outside U.S./Canada), which also supports e-check payments from your bank account (PP may hold e-check payments up to 3 days; so not recommended for rush news). There is no annual or monthly membership fee for our distribution plans.
  • International Orders:
    For our clients outside the U.S., all international cards which do not support AVS (address verification service) will be required to fax/scan photocopy of credit card for security verification as well as sign the authorization form.
  • Third Party Credit Cards:
    Orders using a third-party credit card (client, boss, spouse/parent, etc.) will be required to have card holder sign and return a one-time authorization form for your use of the card.
  • Open Account Billing:
    We no longer offer “open account” billing (line of credit). This allows us to offer so-called “agency pricing” to all our clients.
  • Public Company News:
    All news releases which contain a stock ticker symbol must be “material” to that company (e.g., from the company, partnership announcement, or similar; use in mention of a former employee, in competitive language, or similar not allowed). News containing a ticker symbol must provide a signed authorization form; signed by an authorized person at the publicly traded company. We do not accept “opinions” about stocks, or round-ups of facts about groups of companies in a specific industry containing multiple tickers. Inquire if this is not clear.
  • Where to Submit Project:
    Projects are submitted on our simple Project Form after checkout (payment) is completed. The form allows you to specify the push time, media contact info, who to send reporting to, and is where you upload your word processor file(s) and image(s). It also allows you to specify certain custom SEO parameters such as #hashtags. You should fully review our Requirements + FAQs prior to submitting any project (basic format and content requirements are also found with the Project Form for your convenience).
  • A Company You Can Trust:
    Send2Press® Newswire is a “service” of Neotrope®. Send2Press was launched formally as a brand in late 1999 as offshoot of a service started in 1997 (“Mindset Netwire”), and Neotrope was established January 1983 (celebrating our 31st anniversary in 2014!). We have an A+ rating with the BBB, and were an Inc. 5000 listed company in 2009. We are located in Torrance, California. Neotrope is a privately owned, family-owned, small business; 100% based in the U.S.A.

We Still Provide a True Concierge Service

Accredited Staff, Not Order Takers
Unlike many other services which require you to log-in and paste your content into a CMS, and never give your project a professional check-up, Send2Press still works as a traditional wire service. Accredited editors, with a background in PR and journalism, work from your word processor file for review, final edits, and then we hand-post into our various systems for online syndication, social media placement, and Direct-to-Editors™ email targeting.

Concierge Service
Our “concierge style service” allows a live editor to catch errors, correct for AP formatting and deliver a media-ready announcement. We also do custom Photoshop work to provide beautiful images with every news story – critical for maximum visibility in social media.

We like to think we're more in the wedding cake business than the burger flipping business.


Important Requirements and Information for All Projects

Please review our Requirements/Help information prior to submitting any project. Send2Press and PR Newswire follow industry standards and AP Style.

NOTICE FOR NEWS MATERIAL TO ANY PUBLICLY TRADED COMPANY: Public company news (with stock ticker symbol) material to any publicly traded company requires an approval form filled out and signed by an authorized representative of the public company to verify use of ticker. Ticker can be removed if not “material” to public company.

All pricing effective March 1, 2014 and supercedes all previously listed or advertised plans and pricing. All services are pre-paid and ordered securely online and are non-refundable. Services offered subject to our Terms of Service (TOS).
