Best Contact Form Plugins for WordPress Compared

Are you looking to add a contact form to your WordPress site and not sure which one to use? There are thousands of contact form plugins to choose from so it's difficult to know which is the best for you. In this video, we'll cover which is the best WordPress form plugin for your needs.

Our top 5 recommended form plugins are the following:


Formidable Forms:

For most sites, we recommend WPForms as that is the plugin we've created for our needs as well as the needs of our visitors. This means we had beginners in mind while still giving powerful marketing tools for those needing it. The free version of WPForms can handle the basic need of most sites and you can purchase an upgrade should you need more of the tools in the plugin.

If you're a developer or looking for more advanced features for your forms we would recommend Formidable Forms. This includes different calculators or any sort of form that would need calculations like mortgage calculators, body fat calculators, etc.

If you are looking to create surveys on your site, WPForms is one plugin option to achieve this or for a non-plugin option, you can take a look at SurveyMonkey. They were what we previously used, before WPForms, as an option should your budget allow. TypeForm is another non-plugin option that you can use should your budget allow.

If you're looking to take small or specific payments then WPForms or Formidable forms allow you to accept those types of payments. For more advanced such as creating a store we recommend using a full-fledged ecommerce plugin such as WooCommerce.
