What does Simple File Upload have that Filestack doesn't?

Inexpensive, fixed pricing

At Simple File Upload, we believe that file uploading should be accessible and affordable for everyone.

That's why we offer inexpensive, fixed pricing for every customer. Plans start as low as $35 per month.

Filestack also offers fixed pricing. But, paid plans start at $59 per month. That's 69% more expensive than Simple File Upload.

Whoa. Start saving money now with Simple File Upload.

Fast installation and set-up

Add our file uploader widget to your web app in just four easy steps:

icon-check

Add a javascript snippet to the 'head' of your app

icon-check

Add a hidden input with class 'simple-file-upload'

icon-check

Save the returned URL to your database

icon-check

View the uploaded file via the returned URL

That's it. It's fast and simple. Filestack's "quick start" guide is lengthy with many steps. We want to ease the pain of file uploading not add to it.

Customizable upload widget

We want to make file uploading as effortless and beautiful as possible. That's why we designed a file uploader widget that is customizable with no CSS.

Change the widget's icon, size, and colors to integrate with your existing UI. All with the click of a button. Check out our tutorial for more information.

The Filestack widget is also customizable. But, you have to override the existing CSS classes or import custom CSS classes. That sounds like a lot of work for something that's supposed to be easy.

User-Friendly Dashboard

Are you interested in seeing what files have been uploaded to your web app?

No problem. Visit your developer dashboard to view all uploaded files side-by-side. Large image previews let you easily see uploaded files without reading through file names.

Filestack does not offer large side-by-side image previews of files. You have to click through each file to see a visible image.

It's frustrating, tedious work when all you want to do is quickly view your files. Keep it fast and simple with Simple File Upload.
