We want to make choosing your email marketing app as easy as possible, so we’ve put together some info that will help you decide which option is best for you. Below, you'll find information to help you compare SmartrMail and MailChimp, including features, customer experiences, and pricing. We hope this helps…

1) SmartrMail is solely focused on email for e-commerce stores

You've probably heard of MailChimp, in fact you probably know it like the back of your hand and are set up with a great looking template and logos.

But did you also know that MailChimp was designed for sending newsletter for blogs and contact lists. Which is good for nice looking news updates, but not great for sending individual products your customers like, which will actually drive product sales.

SmartrMail is 100% e-commerce sales focused that's why when you login the first thing you see is a real-time dashboard with all your sales and orders. Our mantra is: each customer is different, send them what they like. And with SmartrMail you can, easily, using our specialty sauce: Auto-product emails.

Ecommerce Email Marketing

Included in our lower price are auto Abandoned cart emails (which will can get you 28% higher conversion rate). You are also able to include individual recommended products, based on the cart contents and the customer's site behavior, which can help with an upsell, or if a customer is interested in something else.

But wait there's even more! We help you build your email list with our free email collection Pop-up which can help you increase email sign up rates by up to 3x. It’s simple, the more email leads you have, the more sales opportunities you provide for your business.

2) SmartrMail is more personal for your customers

Your customers want personalized online shopping experiences. So why are you still sending the same product newsletter to your entire list or segments? SmartrMail helps you get the right products infront of the right customers by sending them 1-to-1 personalised emails through our advanced machine learning engine

Personalized Product Recommendations

MailChimp's e-commerce function only recommends products based on past purchases. With product recommendation emails based on past purchases, cart additions, and email clicks and views...there’s no wonder why our customers get more sales for their ecommerce stores.

3) It's way faster to compose emails with SmartrMail

How painstaking is it to import each and every product photo into MailChimp and then add prices and descriptions? SmartrMail automatically pulls your product from your Shopify or BigCommerce store with images and descriptions. Saving you time so you can focus on the many other facets of your store.

Still need to send the occasional email newsletter to your whole list or segment? You can still add images and text from your computer. And why not throw in some of the months best selling products in a few seconds!
