I read the squeeze page info at http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/how-to-make-a-squeeze-page-using-the-wordpress-estore-plugin-126 and I added the [wp_eStore_free_download_ajax:product_id:4:end] to a website page.
I have a question about the squeeze page form’s ability to verify subscribers email addresses before downloading files.
Does the estore plugin work with the Block Disposable Email plugin to ensure that junk/temporary emails don’t enter the customer database?
I have Block Disposable Email plugin activated on my site to ensure that subscribers submit legitimate email addresses. I like using estore’s Ajax squeeze page to download free stuff because it stores all paying customers data and free download subscribers data into the customer database. In this way, there’s no need for a separate plugin or email list to acquire subscribers info.
Also, you told one person to use a WP email plugin for mass mailing with estore’s plugin. Is it http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/e-mail-broadcasting/ ?

eStore doesn’t do anything with the “Block Disposable Email plugin”. These type of services can be inaccurate and you don’t want to disregard an email address based on the information from it. eStore by default won’t add the same email address multiple times used in the same squeeze form. It will also discard any request from misconfigured email addresses.
There are a few mass mailing plugins out there. Use any that you like. It has nothing to do with eStore so it doesn’t really matter. All you are going to do is take the email addresses from eStore’s customer list and use this plugin to do your mass emailing.March 27, 2012 at 10:39 pm #43425woodbrothersMember
Do you suggest that I remove the “Block Disposable Email plugin” because “These type of services can be inaccurate and you don’t want to disregard an email address based on the information from it” ?March 28, 2012 at 4:35 am #43426adminKeymaster
That is really upto but here is my opinion.
Usually people give out free products or items to generate some leads (potential future customers). It doesn’t hurt to collect every single email lead you can get. What will hurt is if you disregard an email of a good lead based on the information provided by that service. So potentially you run the risk of loosing good leads here and there. Alternatively, if your email list has a few bad emails who cares (at least it doesn’t hurt you).
