SparkPost Announces SparkPost Free

Developers Offered Greatly Expanded Free Access to Easy-to-Use Email Delivery Service

SparkPost, the highest-performing cloud email service available, today announced the release of SparkPost Free, a greatly expanded offering targeted at developers and small businesses who need to send transactional or personalized triggered emails from within their application or website – at no charge. SparkPost Free allows customers to send up to 100,000 emails a month for free, which represents a sending volume of 8 times what SparkPost’s competitors in the market can offer.

SparkPost Free provides developers with access to the same modern and easy-to-use email APIs and market-leading platform that the largest global senders leverage – including LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, Zillow and the Financial Times – to send 25 percent of the world’s non-spam email, equating to billions of emails per day.

Email is the universal communication channel for web and mobile applications since everyone using them has an email account. Most apps need to communicate directly with users, and SparkPost Free will enable developers to embed reliable email sending in their applications quickly and easily without requiring they have extensive experience as an email sender.

“Offering the leading email delivery platform at no charge for up to 100,000 emails is unheard of in this industry, but our technology and experience puts us in the unique position to do so,” said Phillip Merrick, CEO of SparkPost. “We love developers and are committed to providing them with the most cost-effective and best-in-breed technology that gives them the tools to build the next Pinterest, Zillow or CareerBuilder. “

Developers do not have to use a credit card to sign-up and use SparkPost Free, the leading email platform with the industry’s highest delivery rates of more than 98 percent. As their email sending volume exceeds 100,000 per month, SparkPost provides a seamless transition to paid plans.
