    Is there a way to send out mass emailings to certain membership levels?

    I would suggest exporting the member list and copying the email addresses into your favorite email marketing service or email client.

    I hope to have plugins to integrate PMPro with the big email marketing services soon. I have one for MailChimp in development:

    I can write others as needed for our paying customers.

    What I was thinking is using the PMP membership then query by level or manually check each user for the mail out. There are already WP plugins for this, I am wondering why does a membership script not have an mail out to members solution, this seems fundamental in communicating with members and creating membership incentives/discounts.

    >> why does a membership script not have an mail out to members solution

    Our thinking is that you want to use a dedicated third party tool to manage email campaigns because they will always have better deliverability and tracking. That is why our plan is to launch plugins to integrate PMPro with the email marketing tools.

    If someone wants to develop or fund a tool to email PMPro members from the WP install/server, feel free. We've built similar things in the past. Nothing integrated with PMPro yet.

    Hi strangerstudios,

    I am about a simple way to send out a newsletter or announcement to members not a hosted solution with monthly payments. This is quite unfortunate not to have this. PMP has all of the tools but not this important function. It seems to be a natural to have a simple way to communicate with members, however PMP misses the boat on this one.

    Marking as resolved. The plugin doesn't do mass emails, but I offered a few work arounds and solutions using third parties.
