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 you send transactional emails over its email delivery service from your own application (CMS or other system). This is configured through APIs or SMTP endpoints. There is no “send” button on the Mailgun platform.

Sendinblue offers the same functionality but on top of that it’s also a comprehensive email marketing platform. Create, manage, send, and monitor your email marketing campaigns from the same place as your transactional emails — why use two tools when you can centralize everything in one platform!

Sending emails via a third-party application is easy with the Sendinblue API/SMTP server or with one of our many custom-built integrations (see the full list here).

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

Mailgun is an email service 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
  • Guaranteed low bounce rates from one of the top deliverability services
  • SMTP server to send transactional emails, set up webhooks, websockets, etc.
  • Unlimited days of log retention
  • Detailed documentation

Easily customize your email campaigns with Sendinblue

Sendinblue lets you manage marketing and transactional emails under one roof. It’s also great for small teams that don’t want to waste resources hiring a developer or writing code.

Mailgun is a good option for plain text transactional emails, but the possibilities for customizing your email campaigns are limited. For any marketing features and email templates, you need to use an additional service with its own pricing plans.

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’s pricing, on the other hand, offers a one-month free trial of their most basic plan with 5,000 free emails.

With Sendinblue’s Marketing Plan, you get marketing automation, transactional emails, email support, and analytics. With the Starter plan, you pay $25/month for 20,000 emails. Mailjet offers limited email marketing features: you’ll need to use their sister solution Mailjet on top of the Mailgun’ pricing you’d be paying.

Sendinblue offers several multichannel options so you can manage all your campaigns under one roof. Add SMS and Whatsapp campaign credits to any plan. For even more advanced features, including unlimited marketing automation, A/B testing, and Facebook ads, upgrade to Sendinblue’s Business Plan for $65/month. Or sign up for Sendinblue’s additional features, including Chat and Sales CRM.

Number of emails sent per month Sendinblue 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
