(NEW!) Third Party Addons

GDPR

The Newsletter Plugin provides all the technical tools needed to achieve GDPR compliancy and we’re continuously working to improve them and to give support even for specific use cases.
The plugin does not collect users’ own subscribers data, nor it has any access to those data: hence, we are not a data processor, so a data processing agreement is not needed.
Anyway if you configure the plugin to use external services (usually an external mail delivery service) you should check with that service if some sort of agreement is required.

Support

We provide support for our plugin on WordPress.org forums and through our official forum.

Premium Users with an active license have access to one-to-one support via our ticketing system.

Reviews

The Newsletter Plugin has been an excellent newsletter service for me, it is an absolute work horse. Paired with the Amazon SES sending service (premium add-on) it has super fast, sky-high deliverability. I like the editor and the recent improvements to the automated and autoresponder emails have been exceptional. The plugin works well in a multi-site environment, keeping each subsite separate and independent from the others (if activated site by site). Despite all of this, the plugin has a significant issue that still has not been addressed by the development team, and I really wish they would. That shortfall is compatibility with Gravity Forms, which is sorely missed.

truly the best - I tried so so many. It is very full-featured and integrates with all the plugins I use, which none of the others did. I had some issues getting the SMTP integrations to work, but got there in the end. I'm working with lists of many thousands of subscribers and I needed something that will make automating newsletters from my posts a breeze. This is really where Newsletter shines. I get to filter posts intelligently, add text, pull in events from my events plugin, and a lot more. This is a comprehensive solution and Stefano has worked very hard with me on some difficult import issues when migrating from MailChimp. Overall, I fully recommend this software.

I was trying to build my own plugin, but it has everithing I need, and also many more optionsthat I'll never use. But still it is simple to use.
