Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between Mailchimp and Mandrill?
Mailchimp on its own is an email marketing solution used for promotional emails, email marketing campaigns and email newsletters. Mandrill was a separate email API service for sending transactional emails that later became a paid add-on for Mailchimp’s email marketing platform. Mandrill is now more commonly known as Mailchimp transactional email.

MailerSend has flexible options for various technical abilities, including no-code with the plug and play SMTP plugin. There are also drag and drop and rich-text email editors for designers and marketers to create professional emails without the need for coding.
Do I need a Mailchimp paid plan to use Mailchimp transactional email?
Yes, to use the Mailchimp transactional email add-on you first need a Mailchimp Standard or Premium email marketing subscription.
Can I use MailerSend for email marketing?
MailerSend’s sending infrastructure is optimized for transactional email sending and deliverability while email marketing software is optimized for the delivery of marketing emails.
