Typeform vs Fillout
Hello! Thinking about moving over to Fillout? Or trying to decide which form tool to use?
You're probably wondering what the differences are between the Fillout and Typeform form builders, so we put together an overview to help you decide which one best suits your needs.
Comparing the free plans
First, let's compare the free offerings of both services. On both free plans, your forms will have Fillout or Typeform branding, respectively. The main difference between the two lies in the features you can use on the free plan:
|Fillout free||Typeform free|
|Self email notifications|
|Unlimited file uploads||$83+/mo|
|Multiple questions per page|
Manage form access
|Redirect on completion||$59+/mo|
Change form language
|Accept payments||0% fee||$29+/mo|
Typeform's free plan is fairly limited, as you can only collect 10 form submissions per month before your form is automatically closed (compared to Fillout's free plan, which allows for up to 1000 form submissions per month).
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 Typeform is a great tool for those who need a basic multi-page form with a very opinionated design, you might be surprised to know that Fillout also offers multi-page forms and is a lot more customizable.
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 pro 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 Typeform:
|No payment commission||Free||$29/mo|
|Respondent email notifications||Business||$29/mo|
|5 on business||5 on business|
|Calendly integration||Pro||Free (10/mo)|
TL;DR: The short version
Cut to the chase? Fillout is a better all-around tool, with a significantly more generous free tier and more advanced features overall. Typeform is a more recognizable brand, at the cost of providing a less personalized experience to your audience.
Typeform may be a better choice when…
- You want the benefit of having a "Typeform," a brand which many people recognize.
Fillout is best if…
- You want more customizability, like adding multiple questions per page or adding logic to your form.
- You want a form tool that doesn't break the bank, but still lets you collect all the submissions you need.
- You use tools like Google Sheets, Notion, Airtable or Salesforce.
- You're collecting sensitive data, for instance if you want local data residency for GDPR.
Don't forget: You can also make multi-page forms with Fillout, with transition animations and custom styles.
That's all for now! Hopefully this guide was useful to give you a general overview of Typeform compared to Fillout.
