it does need a lot of work to get it going, but when it's cruising it works well
It seems that this plugin is indeed complete.
There are two issues, which I see:
1. The AutoCron is misleading or I do something wrong. It's not clear if you need a paid version or the free version. Anyway, it doesn't work in the free version.
2. The newsletter editor is a normal WP editor. Those templates are weak and actually not clear what it means.
For the rest (it's a bit slow), this plugin is an excellent plugin for newsletters.
In my opinion this plugin is very useful an complete.
This was a great plugin until very recently when I noticed, the message "You've already signed up, Thanks" constantly displaying on the signup form. I give it a five star when the bug is removed.
We are a WordPress theme development company and were looking for email marketing WordPress plugin to send out newsletters to our customers. Our requirement was ease of use and great functionality. Came across SendPress and we were extremely pleased with the ease of use. It has an intuitive UI and working with it is absolutely amazing. Add-on services are also awesome. We will purchase them for sure once we feel there is a need for us. Customer for life. Thanks SendPress for making email marketing easy.
I've been using it for a short time but I really like the simplicity of doing everything from my wordpress panel and using my existing gmail. It's a perfect setup for the small personal blog that I'm managing. Esp loved the seamless experience with Postman.
This used to be an excellent tool. I used it every few months to send out between 400 and 900 newsletters.
As of the latest version, you no longer know what it has sent and what it hasn't, nor according to what algorithm it sends (or does not send) your emails. In addition, instead of saying openly on the splash page "SENDPRESS IS NOW PAYING ONLY", you have a misleading little message that only comes up when you try to complete your mail send - i.e. right at the end of the process:
"Oh snap! It looks like AutoCron was not enabled or it disconnected itself. To get max send speed please re-enable it here."
On snap, my arse! What this really means is "Click here and pay us some money for the Pro version, otherwise nothing will ever work again and you won't know why". Nothing is more vile than this kind of pretense, and I refuse to have anything more to do with this company.
If this is the only way you can get customers, things must really be going badly with the company.
I just used SP for the first time in a few months (biz changes) and I really love the update to the email compose area. A lot cleaner...just like creating a post. I've installed SP on all of my sites and all of my client's sites since 2013. Still waiting on the AR feature before I go PRO, though.
They don't charge for your database, whereas MailPoet charge you (very expensive) if your database exceed 2000 subscribers. Avoid Mailpoet.
There is another very cool plugin that does the job very well. It's simply called Newsletter and has more than 1 000 000 downloaders with 5 stars reviews :-)
