Reviews

Impressive customer service

This plugin is easy to use and does exactly what you would expect given its name. However, what sets it apart from most other WordPress plugins is the support that is offered. I was having an issue with a specific form and Ronald got on a Google Hangout with me and helped me fix the problem. Pretty impressive for a free plugin.

Very Simple

Before finding this plugin I battled for hours trying to get Gravity Forms/Analytics Goals working. In a few minutes this plugin had me up and running.

Amazing this is free…

This plugin is really really nice.
Saves a lot of time and the “no-code-knowledge crowd” can utilise the plugin with ease.

We’ve used the plugin on our clients sites for more than a year without any hazzle.
On april 1st 2016, there was an update that resulted in the plugin “breaking” our sites, but support answered very quickly, we elaborated on the issue and within 48 hours the plugin was updated, the error was gone, back to business as usual :o)

Did I mention the plugin is free????
