If you are using your own SMTP provider account for sending, instead of email sends charges, you will incur email transit charges. Transit charges are cheaper than send charges since you still have to pay your SMTP provider email sends charges on your own. To simplify things. When you use your own SMTP provider account for sending, you will pay:
- Your SMTP provider email sends charges on your own. This is not handled by OnVoard.
- OnVoard for email transit charges.
Current rate for email transit charges
- $0.50 per 1000 email sends.
Why do we charge transit charges?
Processing email events and logs is expensive and takes a toll on our server resources. Transit costs are required to cover the costs for handling these tasks.
Is using own SMTP provider account for sending more expensive?
It really depends. You have to calculate based on your estimated usage and the charges you pay SMTP provider.
