Use a template for a transactional email

You can trigger the sending of a transactional email template using one of the following methods:

  • Via the SMTP API (v3) by using the Send a transactional email call.
  • Via SMTP relay, a method used by many popular plugins to deliver emails created by the plugin using our SMTP platform.
  • When creating a new campaign by selecting the transactional email template during the Design step of the campaign creation.
💡 Good to know
To locate your API v3 key and SMTP credentials, click your name at the upper-right side of the screen, select SMTP & API, and go to the SMTP tab.
