ez Form Calculator is a multi-purpose WordPress form creator. It is mainly used for estimations and calculations of products and services, however has the flexibility to create a variety of forms. The plugin makes it easy to create form calculators and cost estimators for both you and the customer.
The ez Form Calculator comes with a range of functions among them discounts, conditional fields, and payment gateways (PayPal and WooCommerce). With just a few clicks, you can effortlessly add basic elements such as dropdown menus, checkboxes, radio buttons and more. You can assign a value to individual form elements which will then be calculated automatically. The calculations are done instantly with ajax without the need of refreshing a webpage.
The ez Form Calculator’s regular license will cost you $20. This license allows you and a client to use the calculator in a single end product. With similar features as gravity forms, this is significantly cheaper and in our opinion a better value than Gravity forms.
When compared to other form creators like Gravity forms, ez Form Calculator offers similar features. The plugin also comes with a user friendly interface that makes it easy to create forms with a few clicks. No advanced technical skills are required.

As you can see the features are quite numerous. And unlike gravity forms, which charges extra for additional addons, the ez form calculator comes with all these features without any future upsells. Functionally, we wouldn’t say its any better or worse than gravity forms, but due to its price (for the same product) we would recommend this over gravity forms.

These are just a few of the fields to customize your form, but the customizability is quite powerful.
