Why choose 123FormBuilder over Gravity Forms?

Gravity Forms is a great WordPress plugin, packed with many features and add-ons. However, if you want to extend form building beyond WordPress territory, 123FormBuilder is the way to go.

With a highly intuitive interface that removes the need for programming or design skills, 123FormBuilder is based on drag and drop and lets you see immediately any edits you make to your forms. Create any type of online form from scratch, use our Scan to Form tool to digitize paper forms, or start from a ready-made template from our vast gallery.

Moreover, you’ll be able to set up complex workflows with the help of conditional logic, multilingual forms, and native integrations. Adaptable to a large variety of contexts, from personal use to big corporate clients, it’s no wonder our online form builder has 1.5+ million users worldwide.

123FormBuilder is also the creator of CaptainForm, a WordPress plugin that allows you to create fully-featured WordPress forms and surveys.

Good to know! Both the 123FormBuilder platform and the CaptainForm plugin offer free plans that can accommodate more than just your basic needs.

Reasons to choose 123FormBuilder

step 1

A Free plan with many options

As a free plan user, with 123FormBuilder you have plenty of features at hand. To mention just a few, with us you can create up to 5 forms for free, receive 100 submissions per month, have access to multiple publishing options (including WordPress embed) and more than 600 form templates to help you get started. In addition, you'll be able to use images as response options, collect e-signatures, or create multi-page forms. Besides, if you have any questions, know that all our users receive the same level of technical support. 16/7!

step 2

Form templates for everyone

No matter what type of online form you need to build, we've got a gigantic form template gallery. Starting from a pre-designed form sample saves you a lot of time. Plus, any of our templates allows for further customizations, so that you can obtain exactly the form you need. We are currently storing 1.800+ form examples, 600+ of which are available for free. Just browse by form type or industry, copy the chosen template to your account, then do your edits with simple drag & drop.

step 3

Enable conditional logic

Secure a higher completion rate with interactive forms that adjust themselves according to user behavior. Using branching and logic jumps, you make sure your respondents only see the form questions that are relevant to their specific situation. Use field rules to show/hide questions based on previous answers, confirmation rules to send specific autoresponders for certain answers, and form rules to redirect your users to different pages according to their options.

step 4

Multiple publishing options

Share your online forms anywhere on the web without calling a developer. All you need to do is copy and paste! With 123FormBuilder you have 4 embedding options (JS, iFrame, HTML, lightbox, and link to form). Alternatively, you can send the form link via email, messaging apps or post on the platforms you use, e.g. Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Blogger, HootSuite, or Unbounce.

step 5

Native integrations & online payments

Get access to 30+ third-party integrations and 10+ payment gateways. Manage your daily tasks in one place with the most popular web apps for file management, cloud storage, email marketing, CRM, event or project management and many others. Sell online, receive donations and issue refunds with the payment merchant of your choice, price calculations, coupon codes, and recurring payments. And don’t worry about data security - we’ve got antispam protection, 256-bit SSL encryption, smart Captcha, IP limitation, and password protection. Additionally, HIPAA compliance is only a few clicks away.

step 6

Digitize your documents

Want a paperless office? Say no more. Giving up paper forms is now more at hand than ever with a new tool that allows you to import your paper forms into our platform. With incorporated handwriting and form recognition capabilities, the Scan to Form feature is the go-to solution when you’re not in the mood of building an online form from scratch. Available for all 123FormBuilder users, regardless of the plan they choose.
