Can I buy an email list?


No. You should not buy an email list (and if you’re using eGroupConnect, you can’t use an email list you purchased).



Purchased lists are ineffective, and they impact everyone else who uses eGroupConnect, too. If you send emails to a list of people whose contact info you bought, many of the emails will get identified as spam. Some spam filters will flag a campaign if anyone with the same IP has sent spam in the past.

When you use eGroupConnect, your email is delivered through our servers, so if one person sends spam, it could prevent other users’ emails from reaching inboxes. But by forbidding eGroupConnect users from using purchased lists, we increase deliverability for everyone. 

That’s why we work vigilantly to keep our sending reputation intact, and it’s important that all users abide by our Terms of Use, which enforce anti-spam laws.

There are 3 primary rules you should follow to comply with our Terms of Use. 



  1. Don’t use third-party lists. This includes purchased or rented lists, and lists scraped from third-party sources, including public websites. 


  2. Get permission. Everyone on your list should have opted in to receive emails from you, and their permission should be express and verifiable. If you use one of our signup form options, we track this permission for you.
  3. 

Include an unsubscribe link. Federal anti-spam laws require you to give people a way to unsubscribe from your list in every campaign you send. We require you to use our unsubscribe link
