Both Fillout and Tally have very generous free tiers, especially compared to other form builders. Tally offers more responses/month for free (1000/month vs. unlimited), so if you have very high volume intake needs you may be better off with Tally. On the other hand, Fillout has deeper integrations with Airtable, Notion, HubSpot, SmartSuite and other databases and CRMs.
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.
Thousands of teams trust Fillout for building secure and powerful forms.
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 Tally's form builder is based on the familiar Notion interface, making it intuitive for many users, it can at times be more difficult to use for larger or complex forms. On the other hand, Fillout doesn't let you "type" to add questions, but instead lets you drag and drop any questions you need.
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 Tally:
|No payment commission||Free||29/mo|
|Respondent email notifications||Free||29/mo|
TL;DR: The short version
So, what's the verdict? Fillout offers a modern form building experience with a robust free tier and deep integrations. Tally offers a Notion-like interface with a similarly generous free offering.
