Here, you'll see three sections:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How is FunnelKit Automations's visual email builder powered?

To enable a superior drag and drop email building experience, FunnelKit Automations has a React email builder APP that loads from the cloud. We use a service called Unlayer.

When you create an email, the app in real-time communicates with your WordPress site, loads the email body and subject for editing on the fly. When you are done editing, data from the iframe is saved back in your WordPress tables.

No data is saved on any external server. You host the data.

This technique is efficient as it keeps the plugin light-weight, avoids any plugin conflicts, and a great user experience that is at par with any enterprise-grade CRM.

Do you have plans to launch templates?

We do have plans to provide ready-to-use email templates (served from the cloud) and take email building experience to next level.
