SparkPost is available as an email add-on in the Heroku marketplace! Developers can leverage the deliverability, scalability, and speed of the SparkPost application without leaving the Heroku development platform.

The add-on makes it easy to automatically create a new SparkPost account through the standard Heroku add-on mechanism, and all billing is done through your existing Heroku account.

Setting up your application to use the SparkPost email add-on in Heroku is easy. Check out the details in the Heroku Dev Center to get up and running. SparkPost’s developer advocacy team has put together a great video showing how it works:

If you’re already logged in with the Heroku CLI Toolbelt, here are some quick tips to get started:

  1. Use heroku addons:create sparkpost to install the SparkPost add-on in your app
  2. Accept the terms of use heroku addons:open sparkpost
  3. Configure your sending domain for use with SparkPost.com and you’re ready to start sending email in production!

More details about our Heroku email add on are listed here.

It goes without saying that Heroku developers can take advantage of all of SparkPost’s goodness: real-time analytics in the dashboard, via API, and with webhooks; great API documentation and developer support; the best inbox placement in the industry, period; and some serious developer love.

We’re excited to help Heroku make the most of the world’s most powerful email platform. That’s why we’re offering exclusive pricing plans for the Heroku platform (including up to 100,000 free emails per month).

Let’s build something awesome with SparkPost and Heroku. Get started today.
