This initially looked like a good Mailchimp alternative - I like the pricing model and wish more newsletter providers used it.
Pros: Clean interface, nice reports and the helpdesk exists, is responsive and really works to understand the issue
Cons: all of the embedded forms are buggy within Shopify - some won't even submit while others kinda work but the error checking (like duplicate registration) goes to a blank screen. This was issue #1 with the help desk which was finally identified after a few weeks but put on the backlog with no fix date.
The final straw was the previously undisclosed minimum number of subscribers to be allowed to send a campaign. So despite the pricing model being tiny/new business friendly, their rules aren't and weren't made clear up front. I don't know what other surprises might be lurking.
Switching back to Mailchimp...
