The Newsletter Plugin provides all the technical tools needed to achieve GDPR compliancy and we’re continuously working to improve them and to give support even for specific use cases.
The plugin does not collect users’ own subscribers data, nor it has any access to those data: hence, we are not a data processor, so a data processing agreement is not needed.
Anyway if you configure the plugin to use external services (usually an external mail delivery service) you should check with that service if some sort of agreement is required.


We provide support for our plugin on forums and through our official forum.

Premium Users with an active license have access to one-to-one support via our ticketing system.

Several users like me have the problem that spammers abuse the newsletter registration (the name field) to send links and spam text via our website to the email the spammers specify. The rudimentary check for "http" in the name and the primitive captcha do not prevent this. The support for this is poor, without real interest to find the problem or to recognize that it is the plugin (see here and here). Even if the plugin offers good features, this is a fatal error which makes it impossible to use - especially if you consider the legal consequences which can occur in the EU for spam mails which are sent via the server of the users of the plugin. Or that your email address will be filtered as spam in the future. Therefore I give the worst rating for the free plugin - the only remedy would be the paid Newsletter-addons, which allow to use other form plugins for the subscription process.

Very easy to use, lets to paste or upload email contacts and make custom email templates. Works as advertised very nice plugin. Took me about 5 minutes to learn and set up.

Just started using this for our non-profit. While the entire process is involved and must be done with care, the configuration of this plugin seems very intuitive to me. Meaning, easy to understand an follow the logic. A few items lack a clear explanation, but most can be found in their documentation. Up to here this plugin does the "job". I was able to cleanly import our existing list from CSV - NO ERRORS on the FIRST run... (only 4 fields required/accepted). First TEST run was done in under 30 minutes... Thanks - keep it going. NB: I usually read a few reviews before learning how to get a plugin working to see what problems might be common. ONE complained about it "not working with Elementor" - Well, that comment is nonsense, ALL shortcodes and functions work well within my installation of Elementor. Just that you have do it manually since no "specific elements" exist. It's a very comprehensive FREE version and perhaps WE could contribute what we need instead of complaining... (Just my opinion - NOT affiliated or paid!)

I use the paid version. Sadly this isn't a serious solution. Here is why: First of all. The only emails you can send are HTML emails. You don't have any flexibility. Your emails will sooner or later land into spam folders eventually. Many users ask them for supporting this years ago, no luck. They just stop replying or close the topic. Others probably stopped asking. Second, terrible support. There is an illusion of the support, but nothing else. Their replies are "It cannot be done" or "We don't support that.", even if you say, "But I really need that feature" as XX other users asked years ago, you have to forget about it or do it yourself. When I send support query, with actually bug fix - Woocommerce support doesn't support product variations - with verbose description and all the details, the support told me "we will consider to support it" as short as this. So I asked "so how I will know the status of this", they reply "if we do there will be mention in changelogs". Great, thanks for nothing, that's the lowest you can treat your client. Seven months later, they still didn't fix it. It took me 15 minutes to edit the code and fix this bug. The current official version still doesn't support that. Third, it's tough to configure. I have IT background, I know how to code, and configure complex systems, but this was a challenge for me to make it work, and honestly, I still don't trust if it will work in every case. I struggle with how many stars should I give it, as I tried to get the most of this plugin because it looks like it has potential, but not caring about paid customers support really pisses me off. The problems doesn't popup on start, but after you put a lot of time in integration it into your website.
