Noptin is lightweight and works on both shared hosting and state of the art VPS hosting. You do not need to use SMTP to send emails (though we recommend that you use SMTP).

If your WordPress installation can send emails then Noptin can also send emails. It’s that simple.

Noptin will automatically use SMTP if you have an SMTP plugin installed on your WordPress website.
Noptin does not add a “Powered by Noptin” note on any of your subscription forms or emails.
Noptin is 100% GDPR compatible.

What use is there to have a list of subscribers if you cannot contact them. Luckily, Noptin provides two ways to contact your subscribers.
