You can use the SparkPost provider to send transactional emails to your customers using the Novu Platform with a single API.

Getting Started

To use the SparkPost provider in the email channel, you will need to create a SparkPost account and add your API key to the SparkPost integration on the Novu platform.

Generating an API Key

To generate a new API key in SparkPost, you can follow these steps:

  • Sign up or Log in to your SparkPost account.

    During sign up, note that SparkPost is available in multiple regions. “SparkPost” refers to the SparkPost service hosted in North America. “SparkPost EU” refers to the SparkPost service hosted in Western Europe. An account created with SparkPost cannot be used with SparkPost EU, and vice-versa. You may use accounts in both regions.
