Templates, Automatic and easy to use

It automates the conversion of data to download reports and invoice integrated into our website, makes it easy to send PDF files by email, I like that I can edit the logo, font size, add spaces for customer data, such As an address, telephone and email, the price is not expensive, and once integrated into the web it does its job automatically, I like that the customer service is good and they do not take long to respond.

Pros

Not many years ago converting a document to PDF although it was an easy process, using massive quantities it was something very tedious. What I like the most about PDF generator is that it has its own templates and automates the creation of PDF files from the web page or simply drag and drop documents. In my company we use it so that clients can download reports in pdf format.

Cons

It fulfills its function, but in my opinion it should have more options to choose different themes.

We would definitely recommend PDF Generator API!

Pros

Based on our experience, their tool has more functionality, is easier to use, easier to build on and has more advanced technology than other options on the market. It is also more affordable than most similar tools. The company behind the technology has been a pleasure to work with and is very responsive to our questions. Since implementing this tool in our software, we have experienced much higher satisfaction among our users than with our previously used tool. It's hard to choose just one thing we like most about PDF Generator API. Our highlights are: - The flexibility to add attributes and other data fields. - Uses JSON objects compatible with our existing API. - Easy editor that a non-developer can use. - Their master/base template means that everyone can have defaults and then each build of our software can have their own. - Reasonably priced with great value. - Great, lightweight technology and good support from partner.

Cons

One of the improvements we would like to see is the implementation of API Webhooks. Being able to receive a notification that a new template was created or deleted would be a game changer. This would allow us to track custom templates that our clients make and delete. Other than that, there are no underlying technical limitations that we have encountered.

Great Idea, needs some tweaks

Again, this solves a need, however the design tool needs some evolution to make it easier to use and produce a better result

Pros

I love that our website visitors can now generate a nice, shareable pdf file off of content from the site.

Cons

The design/editor tool needs some work. It is very fussy, and not intuitive. It would be helpful to have finer gridlines to be able to more accurately place items, and the snap-to sort of functionality makes it hard to move and align objects smoothly. Having more font flexibility would also be helpful to better match our brand standards.

Simple to use and easy to implement in your platform

We needed a quick solution te create PDF from an online platform. Because we constantly want to make changes in the layout we needed a generator with some sort of designer. After signing up with PDF Generator we could instantly use it (we integrated it the same day in our staging environment). We use it for 3 years now and the service hasn't been down since.

Pros

- Easy to start and implement - Low cost (for low volumes) - Very good barcode support - JSON content as a starting point

Cons

- The UI for designing PDF's has some minor issues especially when designing (small) labels - We could use some more features for working with multiple users
