I’m running into issues finding form processors to process a webflow-designed form for me. I have a form I’d like to use (and yes, I’d prefer to use a webflow designed form because the other free form-generators out there just feel ugly and bloated to me), but my webflow form doesn’t receive a ton of submissions, so having to pay for a form processor just seems a bit frivolous.
I’ve tried form spree, form carry, and basin, but they all now force a redirect to their processor “thank you” page after submission, which is a bit of a jarring experience. (The reason being that apparently there were phishing scams taking advantage of the custom redirect.)
So, my questions are:
Is there any form processor out there that does NOT do this and is free?
If there isn’t, is there any way to avoid those auto redirects to the forms’ pages somehow? (I’m guessing no, but if I’m wrong, please enlighten me.)
Thanks - just feeling really stumped and frustrated right now.
I want to keep my webflow form to look as it is, i.e. not embedding a third party form into my site.
But I need to be able to process the form since I’ll be exporting the site and not hosting via webflow.
The third party processors have made it so their thank you pages show up when the form is submitted via their processing setup. Which is what I don’t like. They usually provide this option, but now most of them charge for it. And I’m having a hard time justifying paying for a form that doesn’t really get used a whole lot. However, that said, I still need the form to be functional, hence, I need a processor.
I’d LOVE to be able to have the form processed and then integrated into a Zap, because ultimately I want the form to generate a lead in my customer management software. Formcarry does this I believe - but again, they’re now charging if I don’t want to see their thank you redirect.
Maybe I’m being too picky or stingy, but those dang subscription-based services add up so quickly over time I just can’t justify paying for it.
Hope that makes sense, but if not, let me know how I can clarify!
Yeah, if I could host with Webflow right now I would. I just have a giant blog I need to migrate over and I haven’t had a chance yet to design the blog aspect of my site and, to be honest, designing that totally intimidates me at the moment.
That and I’ve got a bunch of different e-mails I use on my current hosting with multiple domains. I wish Webflow could offer a service like that, but I get why they don’t. Maybe I just need to suck it up and consolidate all the separate e-mails into one. Ha!
Hi! I found a tool that really improved my lead generation which you might find interesting to check out. It’s very powerful and you can use it on any website and allows you redirect after submissions. Oh, and you don’t need any coding skills! It’s called ConvertCalculator and you can start for free.
I can highly recommend Tectite MailForm. This is a completely free, extremely robust and powerful form processor written in PHP. You can host it on any server of your choice and use it with any webflow form with the method “post”. There are no limits known to me.
It supports ReCaptcha, custom redirects and even your own mail templates can be used. But probably by far the most important: No bot can crawl the email address.
