It looks very nice, my only comment: in my experience there are potential customers who have times with many forms being filled, followed by very few or no activity for a few months. A credit system could work well for those types of clients, even if the price per form filled is more expensive, say $13 per 50 forms filled, it also gives them flexibility.

@dgiol I second this. This is very useful in the student admissions and visa space, but both of these industries have obvious peak periods. Would it be possible to just pay each time the api is used?

Hi Product Hunt! I started FormAPI because I've been living in Southeast Asia for the last few years, and I've had to fill in a lot of visa application and extension forms. I want to build a service that will have visa information and let you fill in forms online, so I built FormAPI as the first step towards that project. I also used to work at Gusto (a payroll company), and we had to fill out a lot of tax forms, which took a lot of work. I know this is something that many financial and legal startups have to do, so hopefully FormAPI can make this process a lot easier. Let me know if you have any questions or feedback!

Saw it on "Share your startups" on Reddit, nice one :) Good luck with the launch! (but it seems you don't need it! :) )

Constantly filling out PDF forms for company tax across the US, UK and AU, I think it would be very useful for speeding up the process. Accountants are always dealing with annoying forms so I can see a lot of applications in that area
