Form doesn't work, it doesn't send notification to adminI tried to contact them through my Envato Element account but they don't seem to care and no replyAdmin panel is quite slow to loadThere are a lot of very good forms these days and there is no reason for me to buy from a publisher that doesn't respect customers.I wish I Wordpress could have a lower star score and I will rate this plugin with the lowest starToo bad
June 10, 2023
We have been using NEX-Forms for two years to our complete satisfaction. The paid pro version with its free add-ons is worth the money because it leaves almost nothing to be desired when creating a wide variety of forms. At NEX-Forms, we also appreciate the one-time license fee (in contrast to subscription plans) with lifetime updates and 6-month support by the developer. If you have a problem, you will be presented with a solution quickly (usually within a day). If you need support again after the first 6 months, you have to buy a support extension, but it has a fair price. If possible, the developer also responds to feature requests, which he takes into account in the next updates. We can highly recommend NEX Forms.
February 8, 2023
An awesome plugin that enables you to do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING! It comes packed with plenty of features and allows maximum customization down to the detail. It is fast and easy to use. Everything is well explained. And if in doubt, the customer support is fast (1 working day) and really helpful. Paul really cares to helping you achieve your objectives! Cheers man
January 30, 2023
Without a doubt the most advanced smart forms plugin for WordPress! I use the pro version on several sites! The add ons that come with it are excellent! such as Zapier and PDF creation. also great support! Fast and professional.
