Gravity Forms Alternative

Here are some of my reasons you do not need to spend $200 on Gravity Forms, plus additional $99 each year. There is a Gravity Forms Alternative out there and I will find it for you. I found 6 alternatives to Gravity Forms that offer the same features and the latest security updates for a fraction of the cost, if not for free.

These WordPress form alternatives are very capable of doing the exact same of job Gravity Forms, if not better.

I purchased the most expensive package of Gravity Forms, “Developer” for $199, about 2 years ago. I was under the impression I was buying the “Developer” version that would Grandfather me into a life-time of included security updates.

Exactly 1 year later, I received an email stating, I need to spend another $99 every year in order to stay up to date with the latest version and security threats. If I would have known about the $99/yr subscription before I signed up, I never would have agreed to the subscription.

Every WordPress site I install my “outdated” version of Gravity Forms on has a large pink bar that spans across the top reminding me I need to update. The nerve of these people. Not only are they trying to scam us for $99, but they plaster a large intrusive yellow bar across my screen.

Here’s what you get when you spend $200 on Gravity Forms.

To this day, I’m not sure how I missed the small print, I never do. I assure you, I will do my best to make sure this does not happen to you. So I put together a list of Gravity Form alternatives, some free, some cheap. I hope you enjoy it.

1. Formidable Pro

If you are one of those Formidable Pro is one of my favorite alternatives to Gravity Forms without the heavy price tag. They have an in-depth knowledge base and are fast to respond to your support questions. I know this because I’ve tried it on one of my websites. Definitely worth a look.

2. QuForms

QuForms is a small program that is built for WordPress. It runs well and fast, best of all it’s only $25. For $25 you get one license and it can only be used on one WordPress installation at a time, but you can create unlimited forms. The license also includes free updates and support. ( As of this post, they are not up to date. Today WordPress released version 3.5.2, QuForms is up to 3.5.1. I’m sure this will be updated very quickly)

3. Contact Form 7

Contact Forms 7 is a free WordPress plugin. It can be found through the WordPress plugins area, or downloaded to your computer directly from their website. I have experimented with Contact Form 7 on a few different websites. For the most part, Contact Forms 7 worked well for me. As a free alternative to Gravity Forms, I would say this is worth checking out. If you like it, you just saved yourself some money.

4. Form Generator

This one is a sleeper. I say that because I don’t see many using it. I know this company / developer has a perfect record on Codecanyon, see for yourself. If you are a WordPress designer or you are just in the market for a really great Form Generator, this is definitely worth a look.

5. Ninja Forms

Ninja Forms is one of my favorites for building WordPress contact forms. It’s free and offers a full set of tools to build just about any kind of contact form you want. Like the rest, Ninja Forms has a premium version.

6. JotForm

Personally, I don’t have much experience with this web based form builder. The one thing this has over the others is it’s web based, which means it runs directly through your browser.

  1. Anthony I have currently been researching various forms online.

    What I would like to know is if any of the forms are compatible with woocommerce or the woocommerce extra add on plugin.

  2. thanks Anthony- very helpful. I like the way Ninja only charges for specialty add-ons. Also important these days is whether these forms will view well in mobile. Take Care. See ya out there.

  3. Hi Anthony, i jst wanted to say a huge ‘THANK U!’ to u, for taking the time to make this post for the benefit of many. Its been very valuable for me, as i was looking for an alternative to Gravity.

  4. I dont want to believe it but does this mean all my forms will need to be redone if i change plugins? (i dont really want to hear the answer *plugs ears* la la la la laaaaaa)
