Form Publisher can be used with either a Gmail account or a Google Workspace one. To send more emails with Form Publisher, you'll need a Google Workspace account; this article will guide you through the different steps to create a Google Workspace account.
Benefits of using a Google Workspace account with Form Publisher
If you are using a gmail.com account, you can send up to 100 emails / 24 hours.
Upgrading to a paid Google Workspace account will let you send up to 1,500 emails / 24 hours in any case, whether you are under a Form Publisher plan or not.
To be eligible to this higher email quota, please note that:
- Your Google Workspace account must be the paid version (not the Google Apps Free edition (legacy)).
- Your Google Workspace account must be out of the trial period. That means that your Google Workspace account must be more than six months old, OR you should pay $100 at once to Google and go on an annual basis instead of a monthly basis, OR there should be more than ten users under your domain.
