In this Everest Forms Review, we will show all the features we track. Please note that there may be more features in their repertoire, but we had to limit ourselves to those which appear in more than one plugin, or have a substantial value for the average user, which can be the case for some innovative and unique feature.
Of course, we’re always open for your suggestion!
Further, we are curating a hand-picked list of video tutorials and in-depth reviews which we found for this plugin. Again, please send us a message if you believe we missed out on a valuable resource. Maybe one you just made? Let me know in the comments.

Everest Forms Pricing – What is the true price?
The pricing is subject to change and below is a screenshot from their current pricing in Oct 2020. As you can see, the initial price is heavily discounted, but after a year, the renewal is at full price. This is why we chose to display only the “true” price, which is the one you need to calculate with long-term.
If you use this just for your personal blog, you may be tempted to buy it and skip the renewal. I suspect this is a widespread behavior, but nonetheless naive: you lose access to upgrades, and put your site at risk of being hacked with exploits which an update of the plugin could prevent.
Even more so when you have clients – it is important to be transparent about the ongoing cost of a site, and to keep the site safe at all times. So I suggest renewing the subscription, but take into account what it will cost once the “introductory pricing” ends.
Lifetime license for Everest forms – is it worth it?
Pay once and use forever – the lifetime licenses have become a rarity these days, with every developer rushing into the (micro) saas business. In this case, the lifetime license costs as much as approximately 3 years of ongoing license fees (first year at a discounted rate, and 2 years at full price):
