Create an Amazon SES REST API

Integrations » Email » Send an SES email

What Is Amazon SES?

Amazon Simple Email Service, or SES, is an email service provided by Amazon. Developers use SES to add email functionality into apps they are running on AWS so that they can send transactional emails and marketing messages to users.

Who Uses Amazon SES?

Amazon SES is used by many companies and developers, especially those who are already using other parts of Amazon’s ecosystem of services. In particular, SES’s ability to quickly scale at low cost attracts developers whose business model focuses on quick growth.

Why is Amazon SES Popular?

Amazon SES is an easy-to-use and highly affordable option for businesses that need to send thousands of emails. Users can send up to 62,000 emails per month for free, and then after that on a Pay-As-You-Go model, which works out at around $0.10 per 1,000 emails.

Integrating Amazon SES REST API

Amazon SES is a powerful and flexible email service, but if you’re developing an app, you are going to need an API  - and that’s where DreamFactory comes in. The DreamFactory platform is the easiest way to create, manage, and track your APIs.

Advantages include:

  • Instant API Creation: DreamFactory enables you to create a fully documented REST API with just a few clicks. This works for Amazon SES and other email services, as well as SQL and NoSQL databases and external HTTP and SOAP services.
  • Highly Secure: Granular Role-Based Access Controls, CORS, SSO Authentication, and JWT - DreamFactory is built with a security-first mindset to ensure that your data only goes where you tell it.
  • Highly Scalable: Perfect for businesses of all sizes, DreamFactory is just as easy to use if you are a small business as it is if you are a large enterprise. Rapidly expand your plan as your business grows - perfect for growing startups or established businesses with new projects. 
  • Live API Docs: DreamFactory uses Swagger to automatically generate documentation for every API you make.

In addition to Amazon SES, DreamFactory also has specific APIs for Mailgun and Mandrill, in addition to an all-purpose SMTP API.
