Sending eGift Card Emails


In order to send egift card activation messages, you will have to subscribe to an email sending service. Our system supports a service called SendGrid. This article will talk a little more about SendGrid, and what we need from you to make egift card activation messages work.

What's SendGrid?

SendGrid is the primary email-sending service we work with, and the #1 service we recommend our clients use. Our technology natively supports SendGrid, so setting their services up with our integrations is simple and easy. 

For the Modern Retail eGift Card integration, you can utilize SendGrid in one of two ways:

  • Modern Retail can host a SendGrid account for your integration at no additional cost to you
  • You can create your own SendGrid account. SendGrid offers a variety of pricing plans for businesses of all sizes; you can learn more about their pricing structure here.

Please let us know the type of SendGrid account you'd like to utilize and your project manager will provide the next steps.
