Sendy Alternative – BigMailer
BigMailer is a hosted alternative to self-hosted Sendy, that allows sending emails via Amazon SES connection. It offers fast sending speed, drag-and-drop editor with template library, and automations. Setting up on BigMailer doesn’t require technical skills and experience is optimized for managing multiple brands and high volume senders.
When you host Sendy on your own server, your sending rate is limited by the server capacity you host Sendy software on. When you host Sendy on a small/cheap server your marketing campaigns may take many hours to go out, which doesn’t allow you to optimize your engagement for best open rate.
BigMailer and Sendy both support:
- Multiple brands, users, and SES connections.
- Multiple SES connections.
- Use of dedicated IPs at $25/IP/month via Amazon SES.
- Bulk, automation, and transactional campaigns.
- HTML template editor.
- White-label option.
However, there are some differences in how certain features are supported and priced:
- Sendy does not support multiple users under a brand, while BigMailer offers access management for each brand. BigMailer is optimized for agencies, multi-brand organizations, and large teams.
- BigMailer allows you to have unlimited custom domains at no extra cost, while Sendy requires you to purchase additional license – $20 for 1 domain, $48 for 5 domains. Custom domains are used for tracking links and help improve deliverability and inboxing.
