Mailchimp vs. Bento
Mailchimp is a fantastic piece of software that we're proud to call a competitor — but you're looking for options which is why you've landed here.
Bento is the definitive alternative to Mailchimp
Why? Well, for starters, Bento has been carefully designed for small, nimble marketing focused teams who work in online business like eCommerce and SaaS — those who need to move fast without their tooling getting in their way.
Mailchimp, on the otherhand, was originally designed for newsletters only — they've expanded over the years but their architecture has held them back a good notch.
MailChimp is a great choice in the beginning as it does one job beautifully: it sends emails — but that's more or less it. Anything else, you will have to look at integrating other apps or companies to help get the job done often costing you hundreds or thousands extra each month. Start on the right platform early with Bento.
We find most brands switch from Mailchimp because they want more power, for around the same cost.
