I've been using the Rare.io email marketing app for a couple months now and thus far have been very satisfied with the results. It allows me to easily target certain segments of my customer base based on products, order amount and a variety of other factors. Far more easily then with Mailchimp. The layout tools are easy to understand, and though there is room for improvement there, I trust that the app is under regular development and will go even further. Again it's already easier to layout than in Mailchimp. They seem very open to suggestions on how to develop the app to suit their customer base as well. It's nice to very easily see the direct sales figure that result from emails, which I have found to be consistently higher than my Mailchimp mailouts, and this costs half of what I was paying Mailchimp on a monthly basis. Therefore I've made the switch to Rare from Mailchimp and I'd advise you to try doing the same and see how it works. Recommended.
I really love Rare. I've used all the email marketing tools but nothing is as feature rich as Rare.io
The analytic's alone are worth the price, but when you add in the most brilliant email marketing and automation tool it really sits above the rest. I cannot say enough good things about this app, the team is great and Phil was very helpful getting us setup and comfortable using the admin. This is the single most useful app for a Shopify store.

I've used mailchimp, madmimi and have just switched over to Rare.io and LOVE it! I wish I would have made the switch a long time ago. This is perfect for any business that likes to keep their customers in the loop about products and promotions. If I could give it 10 stars, I would.
I went from sending random newsletters here and there to random customers to now using Rare.io and having a very well thought out schedule for newsletters. It sends out emails X amount of days after a new customer is added without me having to anything aside from designing the initial newsletter. Which is pretty amazing for someone who runs their own business. I am already getting sales from those newsletter (I love that it shows me how much money I have made of the different types of emails!)
Once you get used to designing them it's pretty easy and looks a million times more professional than what my newsletters looked like before.
BEST customer service! Jess is awesome and so quick to help with any little thing that I might have questions about it.
If your not already using Rare.io sign up now!
This is a pretty neat app with several useful tools and reports. Jess was extremely helpful helping me understand the tool and all I can accomplish with it. Highly recommend it!
The analytics alone are worth the money paid for this app. Add in the triggered and batch email capabilities and you have superb value for money. Customer support is amazing - fast, responsive and helpful. Well done.
The only thing better than this email platform is the customer service that comes along with it! Would highly recommend to anyone serious about email marketing.
Best email app available. Awesome support! They are very nice and helpful.
Rare.io is by far the best app you can add to your website.
1. The pricing is impressive, other services would cost a LOT more and provide a lot less in term of features, support and reliability. It's a ROI no brainer!
2. Features: from reports to products recommendations, triggered emails to newsletters rare.io does it all really well!
3. Responsive: It's very easy to create emails that work well on desktop and mobile. No more weird looking designs on emails, it just works for everyone!
4. Support : Jess has been extremely helpful: she helped us setting our account and importing our customer data in the system. The support so far has been amazing - keep up the good work!
Highly recommend every shop to give it a try!
This is an excellent app with very good ROI. For us, it greatly expanded our reach.
However, probably the most impressive thing about this app is the support, the best we have experienced so far with a Shopify app.

We used Rare for a few months now. It was designed great and the ease of use was nice. They even have people helping us do our emails.
Then today, we sent out an email to all the people who haven't shopped with us in over a year. RARE decided to forgo the restrictions we put down with the email. That we had help with a RARE GUIDE. They looked over the email, eliminated all user mistakes. Then, the system sent out all the emails to all of our customers, high and low buyers. RARE caught it but not until it went out to nearly 400 customers. They received a 40% discount they shouldn’t have received. Who knows how much money we have lost?!?!
AND ALL WE GOT WAS A SORRY. I'd beware before doing business with them. We are going elsewhere for this service.
