Whether you are developing your start-up or running a mature e-commerce business, you need solutions to support communication with users: both transactional and marketing. EmailLabs is an infrastructure for sending different messages via API, so it specializes in the e-mail deliverability area. The French platform is a combo with different tools, mainly for marketers. In addition to transactional messages, it offers a whole set of tools like landing pages and Facebook ads. It also has different communication channels in its portfolio.
Are you looking for an API or SMTP e-mail infrastructure and getting lost in all these details? Then you should pay attention to the important differences between these two solutions.
The tools differ in the range of available functionalities. We know that not all of them may be important or interesting to you right now. EmailLabs offers a server infrastructure for sending e-mails via API and SMTP so that we will focus on this in the following comparison.
Both tools diversify their pricing based on sending limits, the number of e-mails offered in a given pricing plan and functionalities. Each solution also has a freemium to encourage start-up businesses in particular – both with a daily e-mail sending limit.
|Billing method||e-mail limits/e-mail packages||e-mail limits/e-mail packages|
|Freemium||300 e-mails/day||300 e-mails/day|
|Essential Plan: $35/month||Lite Plan: $65/month|
|Essential Plan: $73/month||Lite Plan: $65/month|
|Discount for upfront payment||-10%||-10%|
|The dedicated IP address
in the price of the Plan
|In the price of PRO Plan 100k e-mails for $116/month (you gain 100k e-mails and a dedicated IP address)||Recommended from the level of 100k e-mails/month – dedicated IP address costs $251/year|
EmailLabs’ pricing is based on features useful to both – API and SMTP e-mail senders. It’s clear from the comparison above that EmailLabs supports start-up businesses – the freemium plan allows you to send 300 e-mails per day, which equals 9,000 messages per month. The more you send, the less you pay for CPM (cost per 1,000 messages). In addition, starting from the PRO Plan for 69 EUR, you gain one dedicated IP address for the price of the plan. A dedicated IP address in Sendinblue is also recommended when you send 100,000 messages per month – you will pay $251 per year for it separately (in addition to the subscription fee). So if you want to send 100,000 e-mails in the Lite Plan with a dedicated IP address, then you will pay $85.90 per month.
EmailLabs cares a lot about the best possible level of customer service. We always take a long-term view on cooperation with customers and work with them for years. All because we deliver what we promise: senders can contact us via e-mail or chat in the admin panel. Chat is handled in real-time – the icon is visible immediately after logging in, and you don’t have to search for anything. Customers in PRO and Enterprise plans can additionally call us – you can find our number on our website, we do not hide it. Customers with the Enterprise plan, i.e. sending 1 million and more messages per month, have the opportunity to obtain VIP status, so a dedicated account manager supports them. In such cases, the response time is up to 1 h
EmailLabs and Sendinblue support the most important sender security features. As an alternative to Sendinblue, EmailLabs promotes the highest security features and helps with the implementation of DMARC and the BIMI standard. Additionally, if implementing a DMARC policy is too demanding, you can increase the effectiveness of your e-mails by making your brand logo be displayed in the mailing list and in the e-mail on popular local mailbox providers. However, these solutions apply to selected price plans due to the need for a dedicated IP address.
As an alternative to Sendinblue, EmailLabs offers the Mailchecker.net tool, which, with no extra charge, allows you to check the quality of your e-mails and verify how they will be rated by mailbox providers even before production sending. It will help you make sure that the latest campaign does not end up in the SPAM folder. In addition, if you send a minimum of 20 million messages per month and want to improve conversions, you can take advantage of dedicated support from our experts who use a variety of available solutions, e.g. Postmaster Tools, feedback loops scoring, verification of security protocols, presence on blacklists. Our specialists will test your e-mails and suggest what to optimize.
Both EmailLabs and Sendinblue are global solutions for sending e-mails worldwide. However, EmailLabs is experienced in operating in CEE markets, as that’s where our adventure began. We have practised it on the multi-billion mailings executed continuously since 2015. We have long-term relationships with local mailbox providers and know the intricacies of e-mail deliverability in Polish, Czech, Slovakian, Hungarian, Romanian and other neighbouring markets. It is not always fitting to the specific technical guidelines. Sometimes, it’s premium traffic agreements that make it possible to lift limits and blockages.
We execute transactional and marketing e-mails for the most aware senders, from start-ups to enterprise-scale businesses. Our dedicated approach and expert support carefully guide new customers, prepare warm-up plans, and help with sender authorization and domain authentication, making our clients work with us for years.
