Alvin Engler

The thing I love most about Basin is the speed and efficiency. When I need a new form for a project, it's up and running in less than 60 seconds. Time is money, and Basin saves me both.

— Harish Venkatesan, co-founder @ Designlab

Basin vs. Netlify: What's best for me?

Great question! We obviously think we’re pretty great, but here’s an honest answer:

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 custom email templates.

The best product choice comes down to what’s most important for your 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 Standard plan and Netlify's Personal plan give you all the core features you need. In that case, you'll save $1/mo by choosing Basin at $8/mo and also get access to unlimited form endpoints, auto-response emails, and our API. However, if you choose Netlify, you won't have access to many of the features we provide even if you upgrade to their $39/mo plan. Meanwhile, Basin's Premium plan, which includes all of our product features, costs only $24/mo and gives you everything you need to build your forms your way for less.
