Reason for Our Rating

Successful eCommerce teams claim that email marketing accounts for approximately 25%+ of sales, rendering it one of the most effective marketing channels at their disposal. But to even get to that point you need to have the critical email. OptinMonster is one of the more mature and thoughtful lead conversion tools for small and medium eCommerce business. They claim that the tool is used on over 500,000 websites totaling in over 200 million conversions.

But quantity over quality of users is what we care about more for emerging eCommerce teams. Once your site is expanding to hundreds of pages and products, you are going to need detailed insight and personalized support to ensure you are not missing out on revenue. Today we feel that OptinMonster has a cap on their scalability.
