The free version of the plug is quite useful and makes it easy to learn about the basics of sending a newsletter or a broadcast mail.
སྤྱི་ཟླ་བཅུ་གཅིག་པ། 26, 2021
I only post to my blog about once per month, so my traffic doesn't justify premium paid plugins and I always use the FREE versions. Which often means a lack of attention but not here! Any time I've had a question there is an IMMEDIATE response, followed by a dogged determination to resolve the issue. Really first rate support!
སྤྱི་ཟླ་བཅུ་གཅིག་པ། 24, 2021
Pretty straightforward and simple to implement. I want to make the title custom and there is not very good documentation on how to do that. Otherwise great.
སྤྱི་ཟླ་བཅུ་གཅིག་པ། 15, 2021
Email Subscribers is really impressive for a free plugin of this type. Their Privacy Policy is also very reassuring, which is always a good thing. The support helped me in less than 24 hours. Thank you.
སྤྱི་ཟླ་བཅུ་གཅིག་པ། 12, 2021
Very easy to use. Many useful and easy-to-use features! Thanks
སྤྱི་ཟླ་བཅུ་གཅིག་པ། 3, 2021
Sorry, Great program for what I need it to do. However, came back to add someone to my subscribers list and found a totally different group had been created with 8500 email names from websites in Russia. Certainly not the best security in the world. Could not find any changes elsewhere in the website so I am assuming that the hack happened through this software.
