If you're around the fence about purchasing a WordPress Form Builder Plugin for your websites or business, but not sure which one would suit your needs, then this comparison post containing a side-by-side table chart is surely going to help you make the right decision of grabbing the best form builder.

In this post, I am going to compare only the best WordPress form builder plugins side by side using a long table chart. Currently, you could find Fluent Forms, HappyForms, Piotnet Forms, Bit Form, and Gravity Forms in this post but we will keep adding more options when we find something good.

All the above-mentioned form builder plugins are compatible with most of the WordPress Website Builders like Oxygen Builder, Elementor, Zion Builder, Bricks Builder, Gutenberg, and so on, also most of these form builders are lightweight which is a great thing if website performance is one of your main priorities.

This is not going to be a full-fledged review of all these form builder plugins, but you will find a side-by-side features comparison table chart that will make your decision of choosing a product a lot easier I believe.

Mostly, I make these kinds of side-by-side comparisons for our personal benefit as it always helps us to decide which product should we consider for our business, but whenever I put my effort and invest my time to compare the products I always publish them on this website so that others can also take advantage of my research.

WordPress Form Builders with Lifetime Deal

If you're a Lifetime Deal Lover and missed out on the opportunity to grab one of the best and the most popular Fluent Forms LTD when their pricing was much more affordable, then you would love this post as I have brought a few most powerful yet underrated form builders for you and also compared them with Fluent Forms side by side.

Those LTD options are Piotnet Forms and Bit Form, I have tested both the products and personally use them on my projects, and to be very honest I'm very much impressed.

Currently, Piotnet Forms, as well as Bit Form, are available with a Lifetime Deal at a very affordable price range and I think both the form builders have a huge potential to compete with other big players in the future if the developers keep innovating and updating the products.

Fluent Forms

Being a highly popular choice for creating advanced forms for websites, Fluent Forms provides advanced tools for creating advanced forms for your WordPress website. It allows you to create your forms with a few clicks. The plugin is designed to create forms very easily, and its advanced editor makes it possible to create forms with a great deal of flexibility.

I really Like Fluent Forms but being an LTD lover their pricing for the lifetime deal seems to be unreasonable to me which might be fine for you but it's too much for me for a form builder plugin, in my honest opinion. However, still, it is one of the best form builders in the market without any doubt.

Why should you consider Fluent Forms?

  • The most loved Form Builder
  • An easy-to-use editor
  • A long list of integration
  • Active development
  • Very well documented

Gravity Forms

Gravity Forms is one of the old and trusted form builder plugins in the WordPress ecosystem, creating advanced forms for your website can be a real challenge and can sometimes turn into a game of patience so Gravity Forms was created to help you out, It is a powerful Form Builder plugin that will allow you to create advanced forms without any coding knowledge.

One thing I don't like about Gravity Forms is that you have to install multiple add-ons if you want to leverage all of its capabilities and integrations which is a minus point in my opinion as I don't like installing multiple plugins for one single purpose.

Why should you consider Gravity Forms?

  • One of the old product
  • Loved by the users
  • A long list of integrations

WordPress Form Builders Comparison Table Chart

I have tried my best to include all the features of the listed form builder plugins in the comparison table chart, but it's possible that I might miss something or some of the details might be inaccurate as we don't have the licenses for each of these plugins so I couldn't test them personally.

However, all the listed features on the table chart are collected from the official websites, and docs as well as from my personal experience of testing a few of them.

Therefore, in that case, if you find something that needs to be added or updated on the comparison chart, please feel free to let me know in the comment box and I would update the needful as soon as humanly possible.

Conclusion

In this comparison post, I have tried my best to compare all the powerful form builders including FluentForms, Gravity Forms, HappyForms, Bit Form, and Piotnet Forms side by side without being BIAS as every listed feature in the above table chart has been captured from the official websites and documentation pages.

If you want to settle with a more established form builder plugin, then go for either Gravity Forms or Fluent Forms as both have huge brand value and they are also great in terms of features and capabilities. Also, the yearly subscription pricing for both Gravity and Fluent Forms is affordable.

After extensive research and comparing all of these products I found that Piotnet Forms and Bit Form are great in terms of features and possibilities if you're looking for a form builder with an affordable one-time payment.

I think every serious business owner, web designer, and developer who uses WordPress should consider grabbing the LTD license for Piotnet Forms AND/OR the Bit Form which could save a lot of money on a yearly subscription for other form builders plugins.

Also, consider checking Toolonomy Deal Pages to find out if these products are running any exclusive discount offers or not:

Good comparison. I just bought Piotnet Forms yesterday and today you wrote this post. Great job!

Please do a in debt analysis of Piotnet. Maybe even the creator will be inspired to continue the development.

I bought fluent forms some time ago when they had a great Ltd. However, although it's a great form creation package it is lacking a little in some tools.

I decided to try out Piotnet forms with the current deal and I'm still currently still undecided.

Fluent forms is nice and easy to use to design. Piotnet is ok though it is not so intuitive to customise and as you say there are still some elements that need some work.

Overall though I do hope it improves and also maybe some better documentation to explain how to customise the forms. It's a good start.

Sticking with it I managed to work out some simple conditional logic. Not easiest and hope they do work magic on it soon.

I replaced fluent forms on one of my sites to see how goes. Having two ltd form plugins may mean 1 falls by side which is why giving this one good try.

Inwas looking for any trellis to see plans as usually check out fluent forms one but didnt see plan tey have

Hey Moha! Great article, your page is just amazing. Keep it up.

I used Contact Form 7 on my first attempt, but definitely I will use these you talked about.

I have a question related to contact forms, and is about what do you do in terms of Google recaptcha? I integrated it on my website and every page’s speed was reduced drastically. It loads on every page. I tried to unload it from every but from contact, but it didn’t work.

Do you have this problem with the above form plugins?

Thank you!
