Basin vs. Formbackend: What's best?
Great question! We obviously think we’re pretty great, but here’s an honest answer - the sticker price doesn’t always tell the whole story. To help you chose the right form backend provider, let’s look at some key similarities and differences.
Both products allow you to setup and manage HTML forms. Both give you a submission archive, file uploads, Zapier integration, data export, and white label features like custom redirects and autoresponse emails. Ultimately, the best product choice comes down to what’s most important for your own use case.
If you’re looking for a developer-friendly solution that makes it easy to manage forms across projects, has top notch customer service, and is affordable whether you’re just starting out or scaling your business, then we built Basin just for you.
If you don't need to organize forms by project, monitor form performance metrics, or route emails through your own domain, and just need a basic form backend, then we encourage you to give both products a try and decide for yourself!
Another thing to consider is what your needs will be a few months, or even a year from today. If you’re just starting out, both Basin's Basic plan and Formbackend's Simple plan give you all the core features you need. If you choose Basin, you get an extra form endpoint and for $1 less per month, more flexible spam protection options, but also less monthly submissions. However, if you choose Formbackend, spam protection options are limited even if you upgrade to their $29/mo Business plan. Meanwhile, Basin's Premium plan, which includes all of our product features, costs only $36/mo and gives you everything you need to build your forms your way.
