TOTALLY USELESS FREE VERSION
By , for WP 4.4.2

Why would you create a form that's totally useless for donation? If you're only going to provide 3 unchangeable - AND REQUIRED - fields, they should be name, email and an optional message.

This form is nothing but a pain in the backside. You could have save all of us some time and not even created this free version

Free version - form builder
By , for WP 4.3.1

This plugin is impossible to test as a PayPal integration tool because the default form doesn't make sense. How would any person know, without a lot of instruction added to the page where the form is inserted, that the purpose of the form is to make a payment through PayPal? The default form looks like a contact form, which is not the purpose at all of this plugin. (Hint: look at its name.) If there are going to be only 3 fields in the default form, they should be NAME, ITEM, AMOUNT. Silly free plugin.

useless unless paid
By , for WP 4.2.4

This plugin is useless unless you use the paid version.

Options changed to force pro version
By , for WP 4.1

I was using the basic free version without paypal for a simple contact form. After the latest update, paypal is forced ON. Since I'm not using paypal on this site, an error messaqe is generated on form submit. It now tells me I can turn paypal off if I buy the pro version. As captain hook would say "Bad Form Peter." Literally.

Upgrades take away paid functionality
By , for WP 4.1

I purchased the pro version of this plugin for $49.99, however yesterday my WordPress installation prompted me to install an update for the plugin and the update removed all the paid features.

If your business model is to ask for payment every time you update this plugin, please communicate this clearly before and during the upgrade process. It broke all the forms on my site and I received multiple complaints from clients.

If you do charge for each upgrade then this plugin is going to work out way more expensive than the $49.99 advertised. It's not good practice to leave plugins outdated on your site for security reasons.

I'll go back to Gravity forms, it's bigger than I need but they have great communications and customer care.

False advertisement
By ,

You don't have even the basic functionality unless you pay for the pro version. Can't change the fields unless I pay 50$?
I would actually make it 0 stars review - but there is no option to do that. So here you go - well deserved 1 star review for black marketing.

A shame there are no minus stars for this sort of misleading tease ware
By , for WP 3.9

I know they mention it somewhere deep down on their own website that the free version only has a bare bones USELESS example form and all else is disabled, but not many find this info and download this totally useless plugin - and watse their time with it.
Leave this thing alone, just to send a message to all these teaser ware ideologists so they finally get the message that this ain't working for no one!!

Misleading and useless without the pro version
By , for WP 3.8.1

Unless you want to upgrade to the pro version this plugin is essentially useless. You can't even edit the form's fields without upgrading, which is the most basic of functions.

Not very useful for free & misleading
By , for WP 3.8.1

I am not sure what's the whole point of this plugin when all you're trying to do is sell me the pro version. If that's what you want, then submit the plugin as a premium paid plugin.

I was happily changing settings but bumped into the form builder section where it doesn't allow me to change any text on it. WTH ? Which form builder doesn't allow changes and you're forcing $50 down my throat just for the ability to change text and add lines.

Previously a review says this being crippled and misleading, your screenshot shows things that aren't available for free. The form builder is not editable so why even show it? And also the shot with coupon code.

Edit:
In fact i was so disappointed and mad, that i would create 100 accounts just to flag this 1 star.

Cripple ware
By ,

I'm happy to pay when I know what's in the box. This plugin boasts features which aren't there. I can get this crippled plugin's features anywhere for free. Sorry.
