Installed this plugin on a couple websites, and have sent a handful of mailings. I am very pleased with it. The learning curve was pretty gentle, and my opening rates on my emails sometimes surpass 80 percent. That suggests nothing about the plugin is causing them to be diverted into folks' spam folders, which is of course important. I am also very pleased with the drag-n-drop email composer, which makes for the prettiest email campaigns I have ever sent. Beats every other plugin I have used so far! And for the moment I am using the free version, though as my business grows I will probably have to upgrade to a pro-account. When the time comes, I am sure that will be an entirely worthy investment. Again, great plugin. Well worth the 5 starts I am giving it!

A great plugin to start and grow your list. Finally a Newsletter company that does not penalise your with higher fees when your list gets bigger. Integrates well with WP and has very good documentation and help pages. Response from customer service was helpful, quick and effective. They looked at my problem and sent a tailored response, not a canned response as many CS do. Good instructions to make it GDPR compliant as well and their servers are EU based, which was important to me. I have one wish though: more visually appealing ready-made templates available (think Flowdesk), it would have made my start a bit easier. Other than that, perfect for my needs.

I had a password problem so I contacted customer service. The solution was found very quickly and it was fixed in less than an hour! Continue like that!

Such a great plugin to be able to send emails to customers at any time! What I really like about the Sendinblue plugin most is that you can send as much as 300 emails per hour to your customers, which is a great deal for a starting wordpress based web-store like mine, and the support provided by the team at Sendinblue is also fast and easy to follow. Thanks once again for your product, hope to be working with you more in the future!
27 2755 February 2755 000000 2021
The plugin could have proven useful, but I realized that all data (settings, forms) are erased when you log out (yes, the term used on the plugin is "log out", not "disconnect and erase all your data"). This issue is further compounded by the fact that the support disabled my support account when I raised this issue. If someone knows of a 3rd party WP plugin that actually integrates well with Sendinblue, I am all ears. Tips for everybody using this plugin : never ever click on the "log out" button.

I had trouble getting my account up and running. The people at Sendinblue were swift to answer and worked with me to solve the issue. Customer service is very attentive. The product is affordable and scalable with your business. I strongly recommend them!
