Add-on Sendy.co integrated within XenForo?

    I wonder if it would be possible to implement this within xF. Sendy is a very economical way of sending emails.

    Sendy is basically a self-hosted app that uses php and mysql, and the emails are sent through Amazon SES.

    I'd like to somehow get a "Subscribe" form on my forum, with Sendy in the backend.

    Nice service! For a big forum, services like Mailchimp and Aweber are simply too expensive...

    Very interesting this Sendy...cheap and with similar features of Mailchimp, Aweber etc....I support this.

    Because you can't use a service like Aweber or Mailchimp with a big forum (over 50.000 users). Is simply too expensive. These services are built for internet marketers, not big forum owners. I'm very happy to see a service suitable for bigforum admin...

    I will pay surely pay 50$ for an integration of Sendy with Xenforo. :)

    it gets cheaper if you only email active members within a time range. Of those 50k users i would bet that less than 10k are active in the past 30days.

    Hi markku -

    Sendy actually comes with html subscription forms that you can put into a spot on your forum. They, of course, tie into the Sendy system and help you build a list.

    Thanks Coop. Good to know :)

    *wants an option for the signup form, too, where one could choose whether they want to be part of the email list...* Probably not that hard to implement...

    Could you not just modify sendy php to look at XF users table as it's source of email addresses instead? Sounds like a much better and cleaner solution to me. Perhaps even sendy would make that an available function if you asked them?

    I think the best solution is a addon that permits to use sendy to send newsletter to users...without the integration with the database, you can't send e-mail to all your users.

    I prefer to send my newsletter to all my members...i want to send a regular "reminder" to all the inactive users. "I'm still, alive, ah-ah!"

    Is there a way to auto-add your new users to a Sendy.co list? So they don't have to fill out the form?

    I will send a newsletter a month.
    I need to know if it's easy to download username + email address data from xenforo database easily, so that I can import them into sendy.
    Please help!

    This looks interesting, I have an upcoming project which will end up sending in excess of 1 million emails a month...

    I have been using sendy.co for a while now and it's great, cheap and effective. I'd love to be able to integrate it with my user list to send my newsletter to the forum members.

    Just to confirm, @Stuart Wright and I still have this add-on planned.

    It has been delayed due to work on the Gallery.
