What our customers say

“To us, it [Certification] is a night and day difference. Now we aren’t over analyzing the data as we struggle to explain poor results, but rather we are freed to get more creative and innovative in our messaging because Return Path’s Certification has given us a green light to the inbox. Return Path’s service allows us to focus on content, storytelling and relationship building with our subscribers rather than the nuts and bolts of IP scores and sender reputation snags.”

Director of Marketing & Communications

What our customers say

“For a few of the Groupon markets, we randomly assigned messages to Certified and non-Certified IP pools. We did this for a large volume of mail over a six-month period. We looked at the revenue coming from each pool and very quickly it became clear that the Certified pool was driving more revenue. The decision to stay with the Certification program was easy to make.”
