With MailPoet and WooCommerce, we can build a paid subscription newsletter into a WordPress website. Our only costs are transaction fees, whatever WordPress hosting we might need, and a yearly fee for WooCommerce Subscriptions, making it a very cost-friendly choice.

But more importantly, making our website the home base for this is definitely the way to go. A newsletter is likely to be just a part of your business—in essence, a product people can buy from you. Doing things this way, you’re setting up a store that can sell anything, a newsletter subscription just being one possibility. Plus, now you’ve got the world’s most robust CMS to do anything else you need to do to run a business.
