Major Features

Simple Form Builder Simple Form Builder


Let's start with how easy it is to use Formstack and Formplus.

Like Formplus, Formstack has a drag-and-drop feature that allows you to add different fields to your surveys and questionnaires.

However, the feature's configuration for Formstack is slightly confusing with a lot of clutter.


Formplus has a simple interface with an easy-to-use drag and drop feature.

You can build your form from scratch in a single canvas without switching through different menus, panels, and canvas.

Online Templates


Form templates give you a headstart in your data collection process. Instead of building forms from scratch, you can tweak pre-built samples to suit your unique needs.

Formstack has more than 300 templates in different styles and formats.

Although the bulk of Formstack templates are well-designed, some of them have basic and repeated structures.


Formplus has a rich templates library with over 1,000 pre-built and ready-to-use samples.

The templates are organized by industry and type, which allows you to find selections that suit your needs quickly.

Once you find your preferred template, you can edit and use it with a simple click of a button.



Formstack doesn't have the QR code sharing option.

Sharing your form via QR code has many advantages. First, it eliminates errors like broken or incorrect links.

QR codes are also versatile—you can embed them on your website or print them out on banners and papers. Form respondents only have to scan the code to access and fill your surveys.


Apart from sending out form links, Formplus allows you to generate QR codes for your surveys and questionnaires automatically.

Document Merge Image Card


Pairing texts with the right images is a smart way to boost post engagement on social media platforms.

Formstack allows you to share your surveys and polls on social media, but it doesn't support the image card feature.


With Formplus, you can automatically generate visually appealing images while sharing your form link on social media.

Pagination Google Analytics Tracking


Formstack has a Google Analytics plugin for tracking form data and submissions.

Go to the Settings tab > Plugins > Google Analytics and click Add to activate the plugin for your form.


For better insights, Formplus allows you to track your form in Google Analytics.

Gain helpful information about the people who fill your form, compare form performance across different points, and track form visits and submissions faster.

To Integrate Google Analytics into your form, go to the form settings page, click on the Submission tab, then input your Google Analytics ID in the text box at the bottom of the page.

Payment Integration


  • Paypal
  • Stripe
  • Paymill
  • WePay


Formplus supports multiple payment gateways:

  • Stripe,
  • Flutterwave,
  • Paystack, and
