Providing Email Subscriptions to your Readers with FeedMail

If you offer a blog with an RSS feed you can reach more users by offering email subscription as well.

FeedMail provides an easy-to-integrate newsletter that has no cost to you. Just select one of the implementation strategies below.

Implementation Options


The easiest option is to provide a link to the subscribe page. First got to the FeedMail New Subscription page.

Enter your website's URL and click "Go". 

Then copy the URL from your browser's address bar. This the the URL to subscribe to your website! It should look something like

You can then link to that URL from your site. For example if you are using raw HTML in your design it would look something like:
<a href="">Click here to subscribe by email.</a>

 Subscribe Button

To use a button simply add the following code to your website.

<form action=""> 
<input type=hidden name=url value="https://your-site.example/feed.xml">
<button>Subscribe via Email</button>

Just update the URL to point at your site or feed.


Do My Readers Have to Pay?

It is up to you.

By default FeedMail is a paid service. We offer 400 free updates to new users. Depending on your update frequency users can likely subscribe for years before they need to pay.

Alternatively you can choose to cover the costs of your subscribers. Click here for information on how you can provide your users free subscription.

Can I Access Subscribe Stats or Contact Info?

You can not. User privacy is important to FeedMail and our privacy policy forbids us from sharing this information with third-parties.

FeedMail is great for easy setup but if you want more information on subscribes you should consider a different service instead.

Announcing FeedMail

I'm pleased to be sharing a project that I have been working on for a while and have been thinking about doing for even longer. FeedMail is a simple service that aims to get updates from your favourite websites to your email with no fuss and no nonsense. If you are already sold and want to follow some feeds simply go to to get started. How FeedMail Works FeedMail works using a set of technologies informally called RSS. FeedMail actually supports a variety of feed formats including Atom, RSS2 and RSS1. These feeds are created by websites and updated whenever new content is posted. FeedMail subscribes to these feeds on your behalf and forwards new entries to the email address of your choice. Many websites support these feeds. Just post the URL to an article or website that you want to subscribe to and FeedMail will show you the available feeds. For example the following websites support RSS: YouTube Channels Medium GitHub Releases Tumblr Many news sites Many more... RSS

Digests are Coming

Up to this point FeedMail has only supported real-time notifications. Meaning that every feed update immediately produces a single email. However this is about to change! When we asked for feedback on the features you would like to see in FeedMail we had a number of users reach out saying that they wanted a way to batch notifications together. We saw two main reasons for this: To reduce noise in their inbox. For some high-volume feeds users wanted to be able to quickly skim, then delete the entire batch in one go. While deleting one-by-one offers more flexibility, the bulk option is easier for high-volume feeds. To reduce costs. While we believe that our prices are incredibly reasonable, they can add up if you are getting lots of updates. For example if you follow a feed that updates every 15min that will be about $35 a year (or half price if you buy your credits in bulk). Not super expensive but maybe more than you want to spend for a single feed! Digests provide and option for cost
