Description of the module.

Email marketing is one of the most efficient ways to attract customers to your e-commerce, it does not entail a high cost and provides an optimum return on investment. That is why it has become one of the best sales channels for marketers. More than 20% of the turnover of some virtual stores is made through this channel.

Some hosting providers do not allow you to use the SMTP or PHP Mail feature. Or even when they allow you to use them they have important restrictions on the number of emails you can send per hour, among other things. For these reasons you may not be able to take advantage of the Email Marketing tools that OpenCart has natively arranged. With this extension you can use your MailGun account as a mail forwarding gateway; and thus enhance the tools of MailMarketing that provides OpenCart natively; along with other benefits of MailGun.
