What is list purchase?

List purchase is the process in which a publisher or advertiser pays a list owner for full access to their email list. The publisher or advertiser then owns the list and sends emails to it using their own system.

This practice is typically frowned upon and can lead to high complaints and spam trap hits, because purchased lists are often of poor quality, and the recipients did not provide consent to receive email from the list purchaser.
