Submit JSON vs FormBackend


A quick summary

When comparing these two products, the main differences that stand out are plan limits and included features. The cost of Submit JSON and FormBackend is similar.

FormBackend's monthly plans start at $5/month with a submission limit of 1,000. Compare that to Submit JSON's $5/month plan with 2500 submissions. That 2.5x ratio stays true comparing all of the pricing plans.

Hate to say it, but FormBackend simply copied Formspree, right down to the logo. They fall short where Formspree falls short. You should check out how Submit JSON stacks up aginst Formspree, as we have very different design philosphies.

When to choose FormBackend, and when Submit JSON?

Submit JSON
  • Greater value - Submit JSON's submission limit is 2.5x greater than FormBackend's, at a fraction of the cost.
  • Go beyond form submissions - Submit JSON is not only a form backend, it doubles as a powerful notification API
  • Plays nice with JS frameworks and TypeScript projects. FormBackend, not so much.
  • A good option if you need custom email templates or conditional email notifications, otherwise Submit JSON is the clear winner.
  • It's 2.5 times the cost, less versatile, and less secure.
  • Consider FormBackend if you are not technical, and things like JavaScript scare you.
