WPForms is the most beginner-friendly form plugin in the WordPress ecosystem. Whether you want to create a simple contact form or get creative with payment forms, surveys, contract agreements, and a ton of other use cases, WPForms can do it well.

Why You Need a Form Builder Plugin?

Every WordPress site should have a contact form plugin, regardless of its niche or traffic.

A contact form will protect you from spammers and hackers. You can keep your WordPress site more secure by using a contact form. This way, you’re protecting your email from spammers who send unwanted and phishing emails.

Using a contact form also saves you time. By using a contact form, you can specify what essential details you’ll need to know when your visitors and potential customers are reaching you out.

A best WordPress contact form plugin will also allow you to integrate extra features such as an email newsletter subscription checkbox in your contact form. This helps you to follow up on anticipations and build a long-lasting relationship with them.

All The Features That WPForms Offers

Let’s have a look at some of the plugin’s most powerful features.

  • A beginner-friendly drag and drop editor that makes it simple to create custom contact forms.
  • Premade templates for common types of form to save you time.

  • Conditional logic so that you can display different fields depending on how a visitor responds to previous fields.
  • Option to view form submissions in your WordPress Admin dashboard, as well as the option to receive email notifications.

Beyond those main features, WPForms includes tools that let you go beyond basic contact forms and create things like:

WPForms Pros and Cons

Pros

  • The free version has enough functionality to let you create a simple contact form in just a few minutes.
  • The drag and drop interface is very easy to use. There are enough options to customize each form field. You can also customize the forms with additional CSS.
  • As your business and sites grow, you can upgrade anytime.
  • The WPForms Pro has unique features like conversational forms, form pages, conditional logic, and more that enable users to create powerful forms for any purpose.
  • The developer documentation and how-to articles have enough information to help with setup and troubleshooting.

Cons

  • There is no option for users to upload multiple files in one field, so if users need to submit multiple files, like multiple pictures, they can either add multiple File Upload fields or ask them to upload the files in a file-sharing software like Google Drive folder and give them the link instead.
  • The form pages and conversational forms won’t work if your permalinks are set to Plain, so make sure to change the permalink structure first.
  • Notifications are not sent to the custom email addresses.

WPForms Lite vs. Pro

The free version of WPForms is a great option if you’re just starting out. It offers limited features that lets you create a basic contact form on your site. The drag-and-drop form builder makes designing your form and adding fields to it easy. And, you only have 4 different templates to choose from.

WPForms Pro offers more features than its lite version. Apart from all of the available templates in the lite version, the pro version also offers 3 additional templates.

You also have some additional form fields that you can add to your site like phone number, date and time, star ratings, etc. The pro version also lets you upload a file and protect your form with the password.

The Pro and the Elite version offers priority support too. And just like the free version the pro version too is super responsive to mobile devices and is cross-browser compatible. If you want to create an advanced contact form like a billing order or a newsletter then I would recommend you to opt for the pro version.

Verdict

I’ve covered a lot of functionality at you in this WPForms review.

WPForms has lots of functionality. It is simply the best online contact form builder plugin for WordPress users.

As I mentioned earlier, you can use it to accept payments, survey your visitors, accept appointment bookings, build your email list, and create a simple contact form.

Here are the best reasons to use it:

  • The interface is well-designed – whether you’re a WordPress beginner or a developer, you will find it easy to get work done in the WPForms well-designed interface.
  • It’s modular – you can pick and choose exactly which features you need, so you’ll never be overwhelmed by lots of features that you don’t need.

Put all that together with the fact that WPForms does a great job of battling spam and so on, it’s easy to view why WPForms has grown so quickly.

Whether you want a simple contact form or all that advanced functionality, you should definitely choose WPForms for your WordPress site.
