Mandrill is an email infrastructure service that you can use to send personalized, one-to-one e-commerce emails, or automated transactional emails.
How Does it Work?
With Mandrill, you can send emails through the Mandrill API or SMTP integration. If you're already sending transactional emails for your website through SMTP, you can typically change your SMTP credentials to Mandrill's and begin sending immediately. With the Mandrill API, you can send emails, get information about your account, and view or parse reporting data in your own app or system.
How Much Does it Cost?
We offer two pricing plans: a free trial with 2,000 email credits and a paid monthly plan for $9.95/month. Free trial plan users need to upgrade to a paid monthly plan once they use the 2,000 free email credits.
If you're on a paid monthly plan get 25,000 email credits each month. After that, you pay on a per-thousand-email basis. We built discounts into our payment structure, so your per-email pricing automatically decreases as you send more email. Calculate your monthly costs and view example volumes on our pricing page.
Do You Offer a Free Trial or Demo?
Yes. We offer a free trial account with 2,000 email credits. Free trial plan users need to upgrade to a paid monthly plan once they use the 2,000 free email credits, or to use paid features.
Mandrill is designed to be flexible and customized depending on your existing framework. The best way to demo Mandrill with different frameworks or integrations is to sign up for a free trial account and begin sending email. Use Mandrill's test mode to generate emails using our API or SMTP integration and simulate bounces, unsubscribes, and spam complaints without actually sending live email.
If you signed up for a Mandrill account on or after December 1st, 2015, you must add SPF and DKIM records and verify ownership of your sending domains before you can send email through your account. Mandrill will not send any email from unverified domains or domains without valid SPF and DKIM records, including public domains like gmail.com, yahoo.com, and more.
Mail sent from unverified domains or domains without valid SPF and DKIM records will be rejected at the time of send, with the reject reason, unsigned.
