BigMailer or BeeHiiv – Which Platform Is Right For You?

Do you manage a membership site and need to send transactional emails, perhaps some event notifications? Consider the additional cost and overhead of setting up transactional email with another provider if you go with BeeHiiv for your newsletters.

Do you run a DTC business and need direct e-commerce integrations? Neither is probably a good option for you, consider Klaviyo, or ConstantContact.

If you are an agency managing multiple publications, BigMailer offers workflows optimized for multi brand management – template sharing, role-based user access, various activity logs.
