11 Best Typeform Alternatives: Typeform Competitors

11 Best Typeform Alternatives: Typeform Competitors

Last Updated on September 7, 2022 by DMEditor

Typeform has been around for a while and is among the market leaders, but is it the best form builder out there? 

This is the question I had when I started embeded forms on some of our websites. What I quickly realized is that the right form builder VARIES considerably depending on your objective. While some form builders CAN do it all, others are more specialized and do it BETTER.

So with this in mind, what are the best alternatives to Typeform? See below!

1. Best Overall: Pabbly Form Builder

pabbly form builder

Summary: Pabbly Form Builder (formerly known as FormGet) might not be the largest form builder by market share, but I personally LOVE it. Intuitive design elements, plenty of integrations, and a simple price structure for an all-inclusive feature set.

While form builders selling “unlimited licenses” for insanely high prices might sound good in theory, Pabbly will actually save you more in the long run with a pay-per-form model (most businesses really don’t need more than 1 or 2).

Pabbly Form Builder Advantages

  • Excellent lead capture forms
  • Super straight-forward transparent pricing structure ($15 per month, per form)
  • Unlimited features, no upsells or FOMO
  • Conditional logic
  • Plenty of pre-built templates to get a form live quickly
  • Part of their larger product ecosystem (Pabbly Email Marketing and Subscription Billing)
  • Integrates seamlessly with Pabbly’s payment and subscription software (optional add-on)
  • Integrates with WordPress, most major email marketing tools, Stripe, Google Analytics, Salesforce

Pabbly Form Builder Disadvantages

  • Subtle pushes to use Pabbly’s other services, including  their email marketing platform and payments service
  • Relatively new to the market

Pabbly Prices: Pabbly offers a simple per form pricing stucture, just $15 per month per form, use only what you NEED.

2. Best for WordPress: Ninja Forms

Summary: For my WordPress sites, Ninja Forms historically has been my default. Marrying seamless integration with an easy to use interface, Ninja Forms big selling point is how easy it is to implement for normal “non-techie” WordPress site managers.

5. Best WordPress Quiz Builder: Thrive Quiz Builder

thrive themes

Summary: Formidable Forms offers an easy-to-use visual form builder, but with highly advanced customizations and flexibility. You can create basic forms, but Formidable extends forms into directories, calendars, and dozens of specific use cases. The API integration plays nicely with MANY different platforms as well.

  • Able to edit forms fully with CSS
  • Better value for the money, relative to Typeform

8. SurveyMonkey

survey monkey

Summary: SurveyMonkey is a well-known and long-tenured form response tool. If you’ve capped out the capabilities of Typeform and need more automation and data analytics, it’s worth taking a hard look at SurveyMonkey.

SurveyMonkey Advantages

  • More robust data analytics, easily create filters, charts, and crosstabs for deeper insights
  • Focus on surveys (not just forms) to better generate customer or audience insights
  • Market leader in the forms and direct response digital marketing, publicly traded (ticker: SVMK) 
  • Huge library of third-party integrations, tried and tested by many enterprise level companies (so these generally work well)

SurveyMonkey Disadvantages

  • A bit overkill for basic questionnaires and response forms
  • Can get very pricey, quickly
  • Forces you into annual billing which means it’s more of a risk if it doesn’t work out

SurveyMonkey Prices: SurveyMonkey has Team Plans starting at $25/month per user (billed annually) and a $75/month per user plan. Confusingly, they ALSO offer “Individual Plans” but pricing starts at $32/month (billed annually), then $99/month and finally $119/month. The main limitation here for the Individual Plan tier is 1) users and 2) the number of responses you can receive.

10. Best Large Enterprise: Formstack

Formstack is Typeform, but scalable across an entire enterprise with the types of features required to level up form utilization, data collection, and analytics.
