One of the popular form-building apps is SurveyMonkey. Another platform is SurveyPlanet. It’s not as popular, but it gets the job done.
Which one is for you? This is the SurveyPlanet vs. SurveyMonkey article to help you decide.
What are both
Both are survey-collecting platforms. SurveyMonkey has more form-building options, but many are not available for free.
SurveyPlanet has fewer options, but there are no limits on total forms or responses. Both support single and multiple questions per page layouts.
Supported form questions
SurveyPlanet supports 9 question types. It also lets us insert links and images into our questions. Here is the list of those:
- Multiple choice
- Essay (long text)
- Form (names and numbers)
- Date and time
- Image choice
SurveyMonkey, on the other hand, supports 12 free elements. Here is the list of those features:
- Time and date
- Dropdown list
- Net Promoter Score (NPS)
- Image multiple choice
- Upload image
- Multiple choice question
- Insert introduction page
- Add page break
- Insert new page
The paid plans have additional form options, including star rating, file uploading, payment gateway, ranking, and more.
Both allow configuring form submission settings and impose validations. SurveyPlanet lets us configure the following:
Allow and disallow multiple form submissions from the same device.
Create customized welcome and success messages using the markdown editor.
Allow users to submit a form anonymously without providing an email.
SurveyMonkey allows us to configure the following:
Accept one or more responses from a user.
Enable or disable response editing before or after form submission.
Limit response collections and accept anonymous responses.
Display instant results to visualize a graphical summary of other users’ answers.
Schedule survey open and close time.

On both, you can analyze form responses in graphical formats. SurveyPlanet lets you see visualizations in the Question and Participant tabs.
In questions, each user’s answers are in a tabular format. The participant section lists users who have submitted the form.
SurveyMonkey has the same Questions section. It also has an Insights and Data Trends tab that shows total responses, completion rate, time spent, etc.
Validations are essential to collect accurate information, and SurveyMonkey is more prominent.
For example, by configuring the input type for “Single Textbox,” you can accept different answer types, such as numbers, email, date, etc.
In contrast, SurveyPlanet doesn’t provide many rules. You can set the total character limit for the “Essay” field, but the rest only have the “Required” option.

Templates are a part of the SurveyPlanet vs. SurveyMonkey battle. SurveyMonkey has around 100 templates, but only 20 are free. You find quizzes, market research, events, and education templates.
Contrarily, SurveyPlanet does not have full-form templates. Each template contains a specific set of questions to import into a form.
The template questions are divided into customer feedback, education, public sector, and workplace.
Form sharing options
SurveyPlanet is the winner of this round, as it supports more options. You can share your forms via a direct link or by embedding the form on your website.
You can also generate QR codes using a third-party program. My guide covers a few ways to create QR codes for SurveyPlanet surveys.
SurveyMonkey, in contrast, supports more options, but only the web link option is free. Other options, including QR codes, emailing, and embedding forms on the website, are premium.
If you want to integrate forms with different apps, SurveyMonkey is best for you. It supports many apps.
It can also be connected with Zapier to integrate hundreds of apps and automate the process. Some of the app categories include:
- Digital gifts
In comparison, SurveyPlanet doesn’t support integrations yet.

SurveyMonkey additional features
SurveyMonkey has a few other features.
The quiz mode
The quiz mode converts forms into quizzes and lets you assign answers for each question. Users can see their results after finishing the quiz.
Build it for me
This feature automatically creates a form based on the chosen category. Select the option and choose the target audience and form category.

Which is for you

If your business depends on surveys and quizzes, I recommend going with a premium plan of SurveyPlanet. It has more to offer.
