Jotform's main limitation on the free plan is that you can only collect 100 form submissions per month on up to 5 forms. If you reach the threshold, your form will be automatically disabled. On Fillout, you can collect 1000 form submissions on an unlimited number of forms, for free.
Fillout offers all the basics to build and scale your forms on the free plan. What's more, if you sign up you'll have lifetime access to the free plan features - no strings attached. Learn more about the Fillout free plan and pricing here.

What's the overall summary?
Fillout brings the best of both worlds: a generous free tier and enterprise-grade security. We built Fillout from the ground up to integrate seamlessly with the tools you already use, like Google Sheets, Airtable, Notion, Salesforce and dozens more. The integrations are seriously powerful, you'll see what we mean when you try them out.
While Jotform has been around since 2006 and has a lot of advanced features, Fillout surprisingly already has feature parity on almost every aspect of form building and comes with a more modern user experience.
Ok, but what about advanced features?
The Fillout form builder makes it really easy to build modern forms quickly, while also supporting the most complex forms.
Fillout offers two primary paid tiers, a starter tier for $15/month and a business tier for $75/month (paid annually). More details on the Fillout pricing page.
Here's how some of the paid features stack up with Jotform:
|Custom fonts||Pro||Requires custom CSS|
|No payment commission||Free||$99/mo|
|Priority support||Business||Enterprise only|
|5 on business||Enterprise only|
TL;DR: The short version
So, what's the consensus? Fillout is the more modern form builder, with a generous free tier and better form styling capabilities. Jotform has other product offerings that Fillout doesn't have yet, like a store builder for making e-commerce stores.

Fillout is best if…
- You want to make an aesthetic form that impresses your audience and converts well.
- You use tools like Google Sheets, Notion, Airtable or Salesforce.
- You need advanced features like address autocomplete, Calendly or support for viewing partial submissions.
