Support » Plugin: MailPoet - emails and newsletters in WordPress » why forced to include wordpress users?

  • Resolved ghera


    If I have more than 2000 subscribers on wp, the plugin asks for premium version, although not all users are in the mailing list. That is not OK.

    The plugin automatically import wordpress users. Why is that? The users have to ask for the email, not to have it by default.
    – when installing plugin, it import wp users -> should be an option to / not to
    – when updating plugin, it reimport wp users -> should be an option to / not to
    – when try to delete wp users from wp users list, it doesn’t work, the lists is imported again and again, after every delete

    Hey Ghera, we enforce WP users as subscribers by design.

    Under 5% of websites are membership websites. Most of these websites want to send emails their users.

    We generally consider that users with a user base of over 2,000 run active membership or e-commerce websites and that they have every intention of emailing them at one point.

    It’s a choice we made in the beginning to simplify it for ourselves. We don’t plan on changing it, unfortunately.

    Ref article:

    Well, that’s a bunch of BS.

    I run a multisite.

    One subsite has 3k “users”, aka, I had our employees sign in ONCE to submit some data.

    The subsite that I use MailPoet on has 300 users and I need the newsletter to be sent to all 300 users.

    But your new plugin won’t let me do that without paying because of the other subsite.

    I will not be purchasing your plugin just to send mail to 300 users.

    And if you cannot support that, I will find another way to send newsletters.
