Hello and welcome to WPForms, the most beginner friendly drag & drop WordPress forms plugin. At WPForms, we build software that helps you create beautiful responsive online forms for your website in minutes.

Over the years, we found that most WordPress contact form plugins were bloated, buggy, slow, and very hard to use. So we started with a simple goal: build a WordPress forms plugin that’s both easy and powerful.

Our goal is to take the pain out of creating online forms and make it easy.

Since launching in 2016, WPForms has built quite a following. Currently it is being used by over 6 million WordPress sites, and our users love us. (See: WPForms Reviews).
