I Can Do Exactly What I Was Doing With MailChimp!

When I left MailChimp, my monthly bills were around $100, because of the size of my email lists. Well, now with Sendy I only pay for what I send, right?

Amazon SES basically bills $0.10 per 1,000 emails sent. As I send around 10,000 emails per month, it means that my monthly bill for email marketing went from $100 to … $1! Not too bad for one day of work and a one-time $59 fee.
