Using MailerSend for transactional emails on your WooCommerce Site

If you have a WooCommerce store then it is key to make sure you have working site emails and the best way at making sure that happens is using a transactional email provider.

MailerSend is a service that just released a plugin for WooCommerce which has a number of solid features. After you have installed and activated the plugin it will add a new sub-menu item in wp-admin;

WooCommerce > MailerSend

The next step to get going to use MailerSend on your site is to create an account. The free plan on MailerSend includes up to 12,000 emails a month and the premium plan includes up to 50,000 emails a month. You can learn more about all of the features that MailSend provides and how MailerSend improves emails deliverability.

Once you have created your MailerSend account you will need to add the domain that you want to use the service with and then add a couple of DNS records to the domain in order to be able to verify the domain.

You will next need to create an API key from your domain and then copy the API key into the plugin settings and then set the sender name, sender email address as well as which email addresses should be used to receive different WooCommerce site emails.

MailerSend includes being able to create automation and analytics on the site emails. You can also create templates for your site emails. Using MailSend would be an alternative to using the following transactional providers SendGrid, MailGun, Mandrill, SparkPost, Amazon SES, or Postmark.

If you have tried other transactional email providers before for your WooCommerce site then it is worth taking the time to test and evaluate MailerSend to see if it will be a solid alternative to use.
