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

Getting Started

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

Generating an API Key

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

  • Sign up or Log in to your Mandrill account.
