Jamstack Tools: 14 Form Backends with Free Pricing Tiers

Written by Tucker Triggs in concept on January 06, 2022

Jamstack websites are built to be fast, adaptable, and secure. However, because they do not have a backend or database inherently, they are not designed to accept form input without the help of some form-handling service.

Many services have stepped up to handle form submissions for static and Jamstack websites. These tools make it simple to reliably collect info from clients or customers. Many offer a generous free tier, competitive pricing, and a variety of useful features.

Nearly every service offers common features like collecting emails, forwarding emails to your chosen destination, and spam filtering. Some will additionally offer specialized features like team collaboration, form analytics, integrations, and hosted forms. It is worth making sure the service’s features and pricing line up well with your needs before setting it up. Here are some good options to handle forms:

Getform

Getform is a powerful form platform with great documentation, a top-notch dashboard, and ready-made integrations with Slack, Airtable, Google Sheets, and more. This is a great option for developers.

Pricing: free up to 50 submissions per month | $12 per month for 1,000 submissions per month | $39 per month for 10,000 submissions per month | $99 per month for 100,000 submissions per month

Formcarry

Formcarry offers useful features for developers. These include submission notifications via webhooks, advanced filtering features, and an integration with Zapier (which can connect with many other services like Google Sheets and Mailchimp). They also have useful documentation to get set up.

Pageclip

Pageclip is a developer-friendly form service. They don’t boast a lot of advanced features; however, they offer everything that is needed for simple forms at a very reasonable price. As a plus, their documentation is well-written.

Pricing: free up to 1000 submissions per month | $9 for 20,000 submissions per month | $19 for 100,000 submissions per month, $49 per month for unlimited submissions

HeyForm

HeyForm is a versatile option that is great for marketers and non-developers due to their visual form builder. They offer templates to get started, team collaboration features, and form analytics. Their pricing is unique because they price their offerings by storage rather than monthly submissions.

Pricing: free for up to 100 MB storage | $7.90 per month for 5GB storage | $19.90 per month for 20GB storage | $39.90 per month for 50GB storage

Basin is another great solution for developers. The service has a lot of features including great spam protection with Akismit, reCaptcha, and honeypots. Marketers and SEO pros will enjoy this service since they offer form analytics to help improve conversions.

Jamform is specifically made to provide form endpoints to websites using the Jamstack. The site has great documentation describing how to add a form into every kind of Jamstack website.

Tally is a form builder that appears to take inspiration from Notion.

The forms here are embeddable, or you can host them on custom domains.

Pricing: free for unlimited submissions on two forms | $9.99/mo unlimited submissions on unlimited forms | $14.99 for unlimited submissions on unlimited forms plus 25 GB of storage

Netlify is a well-respected host for Jamstack websites. If you are using Netlify for your website, it is simple to integrate your form so you can manage form submissions through the your dashboard.
