Transactional Email

A transactional email is an electronic mail sent as a result of an interaction between a user and a website. It is a type of email automatically generated from certain actions performed by a user, such as a registration, an order confirmation or resetting a password.

They have great effectiveness and higher open rates compared to Email Marketing, since we have the attention of our users. In this case, users expect a response, for example, to know if their registration has been successful. Transactional Email is an outstanding channel for building loyalty and generating new customers.

Difference between Transactional Email and Email Marketing

Transactional Email is not the same as Email Marketing. When we launch an email campaign, our goal is to reach several users at the same time with the same message. This is the example of a newsletter. On the other hand, Transactional Emails involve a higher degree of customisation, as it is a message generated from an action performed by a user.

In a Transactional Email, we can send information or attached documentation, whereas in an Email Marketing campaign, we cannot attach any file. This is very good for automating invoices and purchase orders.

In a transactional email, unlike an email marketing campaign, we are not compelled to include an unsubscribe link in the footer of the email.

The fact of having an immediate response, requires urgency in sending this type of emails, so they must be delivered quickly and effectively. The user expects a response to the action he has taken or needs some information to continue with a procedure he is performing.

In Email Marketing campaigns, we can schedule the sending for any time we deem appropriate, since the user will not be aware of it because it does not expect a response from us.
