List of reputable email sending service providers

In Email Marketing by Xu CuiLeave a Comment

We have tried numerous email sending service providers and have seen more than our fair share of the bad services. For example, back in 2015, we tried a service which was very attractive in terms of cost. But when we tested it out, we found nobody replied, indicating most emails were sent to spam folder.

So here we only list the service providers we found reputable – meaning your email has a decent chance to arrive in the recipients’ inbox.

Price per
1,000 emails
(USD $)
Note
MailGun0.8Pay As You Go option. Subscription option is slighly cheaper
MailJet0.3Subscription
SendGrid0.3Subscription
turboSMTP0.3Subscription
Amazon SES0.162K/mo free if sending from Amazon Cloud. Strict review
SparkPost0.3Subscription

The list is ordered by our overall rating. So while MailGun is more expensive, we still use it a lot and thus list it on the top. Amazon SES is cheap but sometimes they suspend our account without reasons.

Some of the services are “backend” only. To use the services, you need to have an in-house program or our email marketing front-end service to send emails and manage lists.
