Submit JSON vs FormBold
Choosing the right form backend

Submit JSON vs FormBold


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 FormBold is similar.

Formbold's monthly plans start at $10/month with a submission limit of 3,000. Compare that to Submit JSON's $5/month plan with 2500 submissions!

Hate to say it, but it's another Formspree clone. FormBold's HTML-first approach is misguided, where the cons far outweigh the pros.

In comparison, Submit JSON's API-first approach is more versitile, secure, and aligned with modern web development best practices.
