MailerLite vs. Bento

MailerLite 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 MailerLite

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.

MailerLite, on the otherhand, was originally designed to be an affordable alterantive mail provider.

MailerLite has come onto the scene as a lightweight newsletter provider. It does a great job at this, but due to it's low price point, it has welcomed a large influx of customers from all over the web. Because MailerLite doesn't provide visibility into your IP network and range you can never be sure if your emails are landing in the right place at the right time. If you are sending emails that are critical to get delivered (promotions, sales, transactional), then use a trusted, smaller provider like Bento.

We find most brands switch from MailerLite because they want more power, for less cost.

Below is a short breakdown of the features in both products. We ask you to compare yourself.
