How to setup Mandrill Integration

Mandrill is an email infrastructure service offered as an add-on for MailChimp. You can use it to send personalized, one-to-one e-commerce emails, or automated transactional emails.

This integration will allow you to connect with Mandrill though its intuitive webhook integration. It is a matter of minutes to send your transactional email data to feed your BI, your data warehouse, or your custom analytics stack.

What can I see with Webhooks on Mandrill?

Webhooks can be triggered when an email is sent, opened, clicked, etc. Message event webhooks have several types of events. For example:

  • You can trigger a webhook when a message has been sent successfully.
  • You can create a webhook when a recipient opened a message. or
  • The message has hard bounced.

You can see a list of events you can enable in the picture bellow.
