BETASEND? anyone tried it?

Hi,

anyone tried Betasend?

It says it's free up to 5k subscribers and has automation. Too good it seems to be true.

What about deliverability?

    Hey there. Signed up with them recently - all sounds good - up to 5K contacts for free plan, no limits on sending and stuff, but before importing my lists they asked me if I have any accounts with other autoresponders and I said I do, you might think I should not have, but the story goes weird after that - they asked me to give them login and password to that existing autoresponder account to see if my stats are good with the list I'm trying to upload into betasend acc/...

    I did not give them any credentials but offered the exported automatic report from that autoresponder - waiting for them to respond.

      I'd tell em to stick it, wouldn't provide any business my login credentials from a competitors account.

    Dear Dim,

    Unfortunately to prevent spammers from abusing the system we have to investigate all list import carefully

    After conducting a close review of your list we wasn't able approved your list import request because your list didn't meet our standards. you are always welcome to create a web form and start building a solid list.

      But I haven't even shown you my list thus I'd like you not to call me a spammer. Please.

      Furthermore, your support rep told my reports were good, but, of course, you still needed my credentials...

    Be very weary about giving your list to ANYONE! This is a shady practice and has led to people losing their incomes over..

    My list is my baby! I'd stab an eye out if someone saw my password [ok, not really but I'm passionate here..]

    I would never allow an esp to have my login credentials.
    There are much easier ways to validate the quality of a mailing list without having to provide some access to your personal accounts.

      Dear ProducerK,

      We are approving lists every day to new and existing customers without asking for their autoresponder credentials.

      We have only asked for the login credentials because according to Dim answers we have determined that he wasn't honest about his answers to our questions about his list. other Autoresponder will disapprove his import but we wanted to give him a second chance.

      we stand behind our A+ deliverability and it is our responsibility to protect our existing customers from anyone will try to abuse betasend
