Full Features Even for the Basic Plan

JotForm offers free as well as paid subscription options for users who decide to use this form in their business. The good news is that it provides full features even for the basic plan, which is provided for free. The only disadvantage is that you get the limited form submissions with the basic plan, which is far below the limit of the paid subscription plan. You don’t get crippled features in the basic plan, and you can use all the features without time limit. This is the same with the paid subscription options, which give you full features without any locked features. The only difference is that you pay more for more form submission limit per month. Aside from providing full features for your subscription, JotForm doesn’t force you to put their link in your form in the basic plan.

If you want to use a fully featured online form building tool, you can use this software to fulfill your need. Lots of variations can be created using this software, and you don’t need to pay any single cent in order to try the basic version of the software. However, if your form submissions exceed the monthly limit, you have to upgrade your subscription into the plan that allows more limit for your form submissions.
