The MailerLite Addon allows users of the Stripe Payments Plugin to add the customer’s email address to MailerLite group after a transaction.
What is MailerLite?
MailerLite is an email marketing software that allows you to create email campaigns. An email marketing software is generally used to push promotional emails to a similar target audience in an attempt to grow a business. MailerLite can be compared to other email marketing companies such as MailChimp and ConvertKit.
