Kartra Plan Requirements to Create Forms

Kartra forms are a core feature, which means that all subscription plans have access and can use them.

The only slight limitation you may have is that if you use the Starter plan, you have a page limit of 100, so you wouldn’t be able to publish more than 100 unique form pages.

Other than that, all plans can create forms, use drag-and-drop templates, and take advantage of  customization features.
