Complete Email Solution
Sendgrid is a transactional email service. This means that it can only send emails that are sent directly from an API call. If you want to send marketing emails or broadcast emails, you have to use another tool and maintain two separate email lists.
Plunk is designed for SaaS companies. It offers a complete email solution that includes transactional emails, marketing automations and broadcast emails in one API. A contact in Plunk is the same for all three services and offers a unified view of your customers.
Sendgrid offers no support for free users. The support for paid users is limited and poor. One of the most common complaints about Sendgrid is that support is slow, unhelpful and often doesn't respond at all.
