3 Things that Google Forms cannot do.

Don't miss out on the marketing potential of online forms! Let a powerful Google Forms alternative like Formstack unlock your forms for big returns.

1. Accept Payments
  • Google Forms has zero payment integrations.
  • Their forms are NOT secure. They advise against collecting personal data like credit card numbers (or even email addresses).
  • Formstack has 11 payment integrations and multiple levels of security. Collect payments directly on your forms and never worry about data safety.
2. Play a Pivotal Role in Your Marketing Goals
  • Google Forms limits brand consistency. Coding expertise is required to create a custom theme.
  • They offer no advanced analytics. To analyze and address problem areas on your form you need detailed data on form performance.
  • NO simple integrations are available. Leverage Formstack's 40+ marketing integrations with leading email marketing, CRM, and social media applications.
3. Reduce Friction for Your Customers
  • Google Forms have no Conditional Logic feature to shorten lengthy forms for increased conversions.
  • Confirmation emails require coding knowledge on Google Forms. Formstack's Confirmation Emails are ready-to-go, and Email Logic allows even more personalization.
  • Google Forms has only 9 basic fields. Formstack's 18 field types, including Advanced Fields like File Upload, Electronic Signature, and Calculating Fields, streamline data capture.
