8 Mar. 2023

Sending transactional emails is a crucial component of any successful digital business, and ActiveCampaign is one of the top email automation platforms out there.


If you're looking to send instant emails with ActiveCampaign, integrating it with Postmark can help you send lightning-fast & personalized emails to your customers. 


Here's how to get started:

What is a transactional email?

Transactional emails are automated emails that are triggered by a specific action or event, such as a purchase confirmation or password reset request. Unlike promotional emails, which are designed to promote a product or service, transactional emails are typically sent for functional purposes and contain information that the recipient needs to know.


Examples of common transactional emails include:

  • Order confirmations

  • Shipping notifications

  • Password reset emails

  • Welcome emails


These emails are often sent from a company's own domain and are designed to look and feel like an extension of the company's branding and website.


Transactional emails are a key component of any successful email marketing strategy, as they help build trust and credibility with customers by providing timely and relevant information. They also have a high open rate, as recipients are often expecting and actively seeking out this information.
