What is PDFShift ?

PDFShift

Convert HTML to PDF using Page Link or Raw Code
(57 Ratings) Write Review

PDFShift provides its users an API for HTML to PDF conversion. This service allows users to input a webpage link, which after a few seconds, returns a downloadable PDF version of that webpage. They allow users to integrate the service in their own websites by copying some of PDFShift code in their own code. This can be added to Javascript, Python, PHP, Ruby, JAVA, C#, etc. The service also offers multiple conversions simultaneously or parallel conversions, notifications, advanced options for custom headers and footers with pagination, injecting custom CSS and javascript, and encrypting documents. Users can also send their raw HTML code and get it converted, without them having to publish it on a public page first. Their offerings differ in the number of monthly conversions and the max PDF size that can be downloaded. They also differ in the responsiveness of the support provided, parallel conversions, custom headers and footers, PDF compression, and more.

"Does exactly what it says on the tin"

What do you like best?

Simple to integrate with any stack and also gives the nice option of storing on S3 for a couple of days.

Good documentation.

What do you dislike?

Haven't come across anything that we don't like so far. It's not complex.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Read the docs, implement and forget about it knowing that Shift is creating your PDFS

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Super Easy Way to Create PDFs"

What do you like best?

The API is super easy to use and there is good documentation. I was able to create PDFs in minutes. There are several methods for creating a PDF.

What do you dislike?

I haven't found anything that I really dislike.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were creating PDFs through PHP using fPDF. This was time-consuming and difficult to create. With PDFShift we have been able to do the same thing in about a tenth of the time.

"The best pdf converter for me"

What do you like best?

pdfshift works very good with my css and it has a decent amount of requests free!

What do you dislike?

Honestly there is nothing I dislike so far. Maybe that it is not completly free but I didn't find a better / cheaper one so it is the best

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have to send a bill as an attachment in a mail. This bill has quite complex css (relative width and height, position absolute, tables, @page ect.) and I tried first with tcpdf but almost nothing is supported there so I changed to mPDF which was way better but position: absolute didn't work. I struggled many many hours and tried few others but pdfshift works the best with my css and it has a decent amount of requests free! Very cool thank you.

"Perfect rendering, easy to setup and use. "

What do you like best?

Setting up was super easy. Use the api key and the PHP curl snippet provided on their website, and it worked right away. The dev mode enabled to test for free very easily.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I have found yet to dislike.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Open source solutions for rendering pdf are all imperfect. Some don't render css rules properly, others render images, thus making resolution very low. With pdfshift, the pdf rendered is just perfect.
