Basin vs. Netlify Forms: What's best?

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, custom redirect, and API access to submissions.

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 support, 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 Starter plan give you all the core features you need. In that case, you'll save $7 /mo by choosing Basin and also get access to unlimited form endpoints, auto-response emails, custom webhooks, and additional integrations. However, if you choose Netlify, you won't have access to many of the additional features we provide, as Netlify only has a single feature set and scales cost based on submissions and team members. 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 for less.
