Email Flyers


  • How does the pricing work?
  • Pricing for email flyers depends on the area(s) you want them delivered to. Please click the Email Flyers tab and visit the Areas & Pricing page, click on your state and you will see the available areas.
  • What does pricing include?
  • Pricing includes design & delivery of the E-Flyer as well as delivery of an email to your client showing them the E-Flyer and telling them you are working hard marketing their property.
  • Can I get a quantity discount?
  • We offer a 10% discount when you order more than one area. We also have specials and sales going on at different times.
  • How many areas may I send to?
  • You may send to multiple areas, however, we encourage you to be realistic with your marketing and not send a flyer on a typical residential listing to areas that are far away where agents would likely not have buyers or would object to receiving it.
  • May I send my flyer out-of-state?
  • To go out-of-state, we require that the listing is suitable for that area. For instance vacation property, investment property… we reserve the right to reduce the size of an area if we feel agents would object to receiving the E-Flyer.
  • Are there any hidden fees?
  • No. Pricing is all outlined in our Delivery Areas & Pricing page and our Terms & Conditions. The only additional fees incurred could be cancellation fees or charges from excessive revisions or design and layout changes – see our Terms & Conditions .
  • May I pay after the E-Flyer is delivered?
  • No. We require credit card payment upfront, before we begin creating your product.
  • Do Email Flyers really work?
  • Yes. Over 80% of our orders are placed by repeat customers who use us regularly for all of their listings. Feel free to visit our Testimonials page.
  • Where do the email lists come from and are they up-to-date?
  • We are continually doing our own independent research to keep our lists up-to-date. We work with brokers and boards and also purchase lists. This is a continuous process and our lists are in great shape.
  • May I purchase your email lists?
  • No.
  • Is this considered SPAM?
  • No. We follow all provisions of the CAN-SPAM act. We remove all unsubscribers immediately so agents who do not want to receive our flyers are removed from our lists quickly and are not a part of the agent count you see on our Delivery Areas & Pricing page.
  • How can I be sure that you delivered my E-Flyer?
  • On request, we will email you a Campaign Performance Report that is automatically generated from our system with the delivery of an E-Flyer. This will show the number successfully sent, number bounced, number of unsubscribers and the number opened.
  • Will you do a recruiting E-Flyer or one for a product or service for real estate agents?
  • No. We only do E-Flyers for real estate listings.
  • How can I print my E-Flyer?
  • All our E-Flyers come standard with the ability to print. To do so, click on the printer icon at the top right of the email flyer. You will see a printable version - print as you normally would for your printer.You may print directly from the email, however, it is not recommended and information may be lost depending on your email and print preferences.
  • Will you do an E-Flyer for a For Sale by Owner property or for a listing with Limited Service agency?
  • We will not do E-Flyers for FSBO's. We will do a flyer if the property is listed with a Limited Service Agency but require that the listing agent be on the E-Flyer.
  • Will my E-Flyer be delivered into the inbox?
  • Usually yes. Through various certifications that we have earned, we are Whitelisted with most of the major email carriers and spamblockers. This allows us directly into the inbox with our images enabled. Sometimes an individual's computer settings will prevent us from getting to the inbox and this is, of course, beyond our control.
  • Are the E-Flyers viewable on mobile devices?
  • Yes. Our E-Flyers are smart phone capable. Depending on who hosts your email (i.e. yahoo.com, aol.com, gmail.com, msn.com) and how your email spam filter is configured, our E-Flyers may need to have content downloaded or enabled. It really just depends on your individual phone and email settings.
  • Who does the E-Flyer come from?
  • The E-Flyer will be from the agent/builder/community representing the listing. For example: "Joe Agent of The Best Real Estate Company".
  • What is the email subject line?
  • We will ask you to supply the SUBJECT LINE for the E-Flyer when you place your order. It must be relevant to the content of the E-Flyer and cannot be misleading. We reserve the right to make changes if necessary.
  • May I use the graphics, HTML and/or .jpgs for further marketing on my end?
  • No. Not without express written permission from Zip Your Flyer. We reserve the rights to all elements in our E-Flyers.
  • May I get a PDF of the E-Flyer?
  • You may purchase a Print Quality PDF for an additional $15.

  • No, the limit is one listing per flyer unless you are having a Broker's Tour or Joint Open House…
  • May I send an E-Flyer for a dual broker's open or broker's open tour?
  • Yes. Please contact our Customer Service Department for special instructions and a price quote.
  • Can I send you my own Agent Contact List?
  • No. We can verify that certain agents are on our list, but we use our own list. (Most of the agents you want to send to are likely on our list anyway.)
