Get More for Your Money with Sendinblue

Try an all-in-one platform with marketing and transactional emails under one roof.

What's the difference between Sendinblue and Mailgun?

Mailgun lets businesses send transactional emails over its email delivery service from the business’ own application (be it their CMS or other system). This is configured through APIs or SMTP endpoints. There is no “send” button on the Mailgun platform.

Sendinblue offers this exact functionality but that’s not all it’s also a comprehensive email marketing platform. You can customize and send pre-planned email marketing campaigns, as well as send transactional emails, as part of your monthly plan.

Sending emails via a third-party application is easily done with the Sendinblue API/SMTP server or with one of our many custom-built integrations.  Sendinblue integrates seamlessly with most of the best-known systems such as WordPress, Shopify, Zapier, Salesforce, etc. See the full list here.   

Sendinblue vs. Mailgun: Which is the right one for my business?

Mailgun is an email tool aimed at developers and is purposely built with this audience in mind. If you’re not a developer and don’t know much about coding emails, this probably isn’t the tool for you. 

Sendinblue, on the other hand, is a lot more versatile and caters to a wider audience: complete beginners, advanced marketers, and developers. Like Mailgun, Sendinblue offers all the functionality a developer needs, including:

  • A powerful email API with access to the entire range of Sendinblue features
  • SMTP server to send transactional emails, set up webhooks, websockets, etc.
  • Detailed documentation

Easily customize your email campaigns with Sendinblue

If you like the idea of managing marketing and transactional emails all under the one roof, Sendinblue lets you do exactly that. The same goes if you’re a small team and don’t want to waste resources hiring a developer or writing more code than you need to.

While Mailgun is a good option for plain text transactional emails, the possibilities for customizing your email campaigns are limited. Their only email design feature is the HTML editor, so expect to spend time coding HTML emails from scratch.

Sendinblue vs Mailgun Pricing: Get better value for money with Sendinblue

Both services base their prices on the number of emails sent rather than number of contacts stored. 

Sendinblue offers a forever free plan that lets you send up to 300 emails a day, store unlimited contacts, and access the essential email marketing features. Mailgun, on the other hand, offers a three-month free trial of their most basic plan for 5,000 emails/month. 

Below is what you can expect to spend with each service, comparing paid plans with similar levels of support. Note that the Sendinblue pricing includes email marketing plus the other features of its all-in-one marketing platform (Marketing Automation, CRM, Facebook ads, etc.). These features aren’t available with Mailgun.

They explain it best

Simple and comprehensive

"What I like best about Sendinblue is the simplicity. I've never watched the free tutorials but I still manage to create email campaigns, do marketing automation, etc. And if you have a question, there's a very responsive team ready to help with whatever you need."

Dollivan C.

The best tool to engage prospects

"Sendinblue is the best tool to reach our prospect clients and to engage current customers with regular updates. Their support team is very quick to fix things (if any).

Thank you Sendinblue Team."

Sathish Reddy

If you are legit, this is your service

"They screen new contact lists very carefully so their SMTP reputation is very high. That means more emails in people's inboxes. As long as you have a legit email database and not trying to spam folks, this is a fantastic service. A great option for transactional email too."

Dan Campbell
