Describe Pepipost – the elevator pitch …
Remember the feeling when you anxiously wait for something like for eternity and it doesn’t happen? This holds good in the email space as well. With a startling 85% of emails going directly to spam, even the important ones like password reset, order confirmation, etc get trapped in the spam folder. This is bad news for businesses that rely heavily on email to communicate with customers. Spam is not the only hurdle one faces. With your business constantly growing, you need to have infrastructure that can scale and deliver high volume emails to the inbox.
At Pepipost, our job is to put your transactional emails where they belong – in the inbox within a fraction of a second. Our highly scalable cloud based platform that is capable of delivering billions of emails every hour and our email delivery expertise ensures the best inbox rates.

How are you different?
Two unique characteristics sets us apart from competition and places us uniquely in the minds of the customers:
- Think innovative: Our philosophy is to keep the email ecosystem clean. We motivate good senders by charging only for emails not opened by customers. That means, going by the average industry open rates, our customers get to save 40% of email costs.
- Be disruptive: Disruption is in our DNA; changing the way we think, behave and do business. Our recent initiative of 100 million free transactional emails, something that’s never heard of, has taken the email industry by storm.
Why will the company / product do well?
Our innovative email delivery platform with easy integration and disruptive pricing model meets the needs of burgeoning startups and industry bigwigs alike.
