In this guide, we will see how to get the SMTP credentials from SendGrid and configure these credentials for PluginHive Shopify apps. SendGrid is a cloud-based SMTP provider that allows you to send emails without having to maintain email servers.
You can use the following solutions to configure SendGrid credentials for Shopify.
So, let’s see the step by step process to get the SMTP credentials from SendGrid.
Sign up for an account with SendGrid
Confirm your email address and verify the sender
Once you create the account or sign in, verify the email address. After the email address is verified, you need to verify the sender. To do this, head to Settings –> Sender verification. The verification can be done in two ways; Domain authentication or Single Sender verification, in case you do not wish to enter domain details.
For Single sender verification, enter the details and save the sender as shown below.
This will send an email to the entered Email address for verification. Once verified you can start sending emails from this email address.
For any clarifications regarding the single sender verification, visit the single sender verification guide.
Create API Keys
After the sender verification is complete, you need to create API keys. You can find that option under “Send Your First Email”. Choose “Integrate using our Web API or SMTP relay” and click on “Start” as shown below.
Now, select the SMTP relay as shown below.
You can then provide a Name and click on “Create Key“.
This will generate the keys and the credentials required for configuring the apps.
To do the domain validation you can follow this guide on how to set up domain authentication.
