Bonus: Why We Choose Brevo (formerly Sendinblue)
1. You can send up to 9,000 emails every month using their free plan.
2. You do not need to have a credit card to sign up for a Brevo account.
3. Brevo does not require you to verify your domain in order to use your account.
The only downside is that you’ll need to login to your Brevo account once every 3 months in order to to keep your account active.
If you did not login during the 90-day period, Brevo will send you a reminder 7 days before they delete your account (so it’s best to use an email that you check regularly).
