Advanced Notion features
Wufoo's free plan is pretty limited - you get a reasonable number of submissions (100/month on up to 5 forms), but you can't use any of the advanced features like calculations, answer piping, webhooks or conditional logic. Fillout, on the other hand, offers most of these capabilities for free and has more aesthetic form designs.
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 Wufoo has been around since 2006, Fillout surprisingly already has more advanced form features and is a better tool for making forms that people enjoy answering.
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 Wufoo:
|No payment commission||Free||$29/mo|
|Priority support||Business||Email only|
|Respondent email notifications||Free||$14/mo|
|5 on business||5 for $74/mo|
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. Wufuoo is a legacy player and is owned by the survey juggernaut SurveyMonkey.
Wufoo may be a better choice when…
- You don't need any advanced features and want to accept payments on a non-standard payment gateway, like Authorize.Net or USAePay.
Fillout is best if…
- You care about your form's appearance and want the form to convert 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.
- You want a form builder that's modern and easy to use, even for setting up advanced logic.
That's all for now! Hopefully this guide was useful to give you a general overview of Wufoo compared to Fillout.
