UseCSV is the best Flatfile alternative

Clear, transparent Pricing

UseCSV offers a simple pricing structure that is available on our homepage. No “Request a demo” and other hazy pricing practices. Get UseCSV up and running without getting delayed by sales tactics.

Flatfile pricing is a mystery

There’s no clear pricing on their website. To get started you need to get into a 15-min call with a sales rep before you can view the product. With UseCSV we offer monthly plans with a forever free account option so you can test how the product fits with your business and only upgrade when you need to.

Embed into your app in minutes

Easily embed UseCSV importer into your frontend with a few lines of JavaScript and webhook and hook it to your import button. We designed UseCSV to transform the CSV import experience for your users.

More manual configuration

Flatfile requires more code just to get the basic setup. With UseCSV you can configure everything in the dashboard easily.

Scalable pricing

Start on our free forever plan, then upgrade to an affordable monthly plan that meets your needs as you grow.

Flatfile charges $10K or more up-front

Flatfile only offers a high annual upfront price that can cost you tens of thousands of dollars just to get started.

Responsive team

Hard to reach

Larger organizations are slower to incorporate your feedback and less likely to build specific features you need.

The simple way to implement CSV import

In-house solutions often suffer from filesize limitations or processing timeouts, which can frustrate users and use up expensive support time.

Powerful CSV import plugin

Drop our Importer javascript into your app and your users will experience an easy and powerful data import process.

Supports CSV and all Excel formats

Let users upload data in the format that's most convenient for them, including files from legacy Excel versions.

Validation rule library

Choose from a library of common validation rules including email, phone, currency and number formats.

Receive import data as a webhook or callback
