Save a lot of money with n8n and be the owner of your data

I love it, I recommend it, maybe at first it is overwhelming, but when the months go by and you see what you save on the bill, that gives me great joy and knowing that I am the owner of my data and if I do much more traffic due to workflows, I still pay what same at the end of the month in the vps

Pros

1) ability to integrate almost all tools2) easy to integrate pre-designed flows3) you can implement it on your own VPS infrastructure4) NO LIMITS OF flows per month I love that.

Cons

To be honest I took a course, it cost me a few bucks, however now I can ask questions because the support was not very good in the public community

I have found Zapier and N8N to be very useful tools. I use both platforms depending on the complexity of the workflow. When dealing with tasks that require multiple steps, I prefer to use N8N. For simpler tasks, I opt for Zapier. Eventually, I plan to migrate all my workflows to N8N when I have more time.

Pros

N8N's pricing structure is more appealing than Zapier's. Unlike Zapier, where you are charged for every action or step your zap executes, N8N offers "workflows" that can include unlimited steps (as far as I know). In N8N, you are charged based on the number of workflows executed.

Cons

There are some complexities in performing tasks like creating a contact in Hubspot or writing a column in Sheets. When I first had to set them up, I had to search for several tutorials on YouTube because setting up parameters can be tricky, especially when working with webhooks and JSON parsed files. It would be helpful to have a more user-friendly version of N8N, similar to Zapier, where the user can choose which one to use based on their available time and expertise.

Alternatives Considered

Zapier

Reasons for Choosing n8n.io

Basically, because of pricing. I paid 16$ monthly for 5000 workflow executions, while in Zapier, I have to pay 30$ per 750 tasks.

Good open source workflow automation engine

Reviewed on 2022/05/13

Pros

N8n is an open workflow automation tool. It has a large number of integrations with popular software systems (which it calls nodes). There are workflow which are templated automation steps that can be shared publicly. The community is moderately large and they are fairly responsive.

Cons

Original n8n was open source but they changed the licensing to be extremely restrictive. So it's not really useable to base a project on top of. It does require some technical no-how, I wouldn't really term it as low-code. While there are lots of integrations, mostly only implement a few API calls and are incomplete.

Reviewed on 2024/01/12

Pros

Very good service but it can be quite difficult to setup some workflow.
Also, it can’t manage a very big volume of data.

Cons

Performance with big data volume when I download from sftp, extract and request it to apis
