Are you tired of your website emails being marked as spam?

Have you ever wished there was an easy and reliable way to get your website emails delivered to your customer’s inbox WITHOUT the high costs?

If you’re like me and most other smart website owners, then you have at least wished for this solution a couple times in your WordPress journey.

Today, I’m excited to announce my new product, SendLayer, which will level up your website’s email infrastructure.

We built this tool to help you get your website emails into your user’s inbox with maximum deliverability, reliability, and scalability.

Introducing SendLayer - SMTP Email Service for WordPress

What is SendLayer?

SendLayer is a SMTP email service API that helps your website emails get into customer’s inbox without being marked as spam.

It offers blazing fast email delivery while protecting your domain reputation from spam filters and giving you detailed email logs along with open & click analytics.

SendLayer Effect

SendLayer seamlessly connects with WordPress, so you can use it to reliably send website emails like store receipts, confirmation emails, shipping notifications, password reset emails, and other WordPress emails with maximum reliability.

Why Do You Need SendLayer?

If you’re like most users, then you have likely run into the problem of WordPress not sending email issue. This is one of the most commonly asked questions on WPBeginner.

Many of our beginner level users ask us why their contact form plugin is not sending emails, or why they are not seeing any WordPress notifications.

That’s because most WordPress hosting servers are not configured to send emails using the default PHP mail() function.

And even if your hosting server is configured properly, many email service providers like Gmail, Outlook, and others use sophisticated tools to reduce email spam. These tools try to detect if an email is really coming from the location that it claims to be.

Emails sent by WordPress websites often fail the test.

This means that majority of the emails sent by your website will either land in user’s spam inbox or not get delivered at all. This include your website’s contact form plugin emails, your online store receipts, password reset emails, admin notifications, and more.

This is why most smart website owners use SMTP for sending emails in WordPress.

And this is why I created the free WP Mail SMTP plugin which is used by over 3 million websites.

How SMTP Works

But the problem was that a lot of beginner users still didn’t know how to set up SMTP properly because simply installing the plugin isn’t enough.

You still needed to use a SMTP email service that’s built for maximum deliverability, reliability, and scalability. We integrated with numerous service providers like Amazon, Google, etc, but they were all quite difficult to use for beginners.

So after listening to a lot of our user feedback, I decided to work with my team to finally create a beginner-friendly SMTP service, SendLayer, that works for all types of websites including WordPress.

Whether you’re using WordPress, WooCommerce, Magento, Laravel, Drupal, Joomla, or any other platform, you can use SendLayer to improve your email deliverability.

SendLayer gives you access to:

  • Awesome email deliverability
  • Spam Filter protection
  • Detailed email logs
  • Open and click analytics
  • Event-based webhooks to setup custom notifications
  • SMTP relay API for those that want to use SendLayer inside custom apps
  • Simple suppression list to protect your delivery reputation

… and a whole lot more.

Basically, if you’re serious about your website and want to grow your online business, then you know that email deliverability is important.

And SendLayer offers you one of the best email infrastructure in the market.

SendLayer Types of Emails

Once connected with your WordPress site, it automatically ensures that all your website emails get delivered in your user’s inbox.

How to use SendLayer with WordPress?

What’s Coming Next in SendLayer?

While I’m sharing the SendLayer news with you today, SendLayer has actually been out since April of 2022. After extensively testing it through out 2021, we did a soft-launch earlier in the year and have since onboarded thousands of website owners already using the platform.

We have a really exciting roadmap ahead of us, and I’m really proud of our team.

We are working on building ,pre cutting-edge email delivery tools to help small business owners and online store owners get their emails delivered into their user’s inbox, so you can continue to maximize your revenue growth.
