Reviews

Great plugin! Simple setup and awesome features!

I’m still fairly new to WordPress and have recently taken over administrating our company’s website. I’ve looked at many different plugins and Optin Cat was by far the easiest to implement into our website without any conflicts. Linking this over to our Campaign Monitor account was likewise smooth and quick. While the free version has many great features and would be great by itself, the premium version is worth the price if you need the extra functionality. Definitely recommend.
