Hi. I want to do what (in my mind) is the simplest use case of an emailer platform (before i get into metrics monitization marketing promotions customer retention). FIRST OFF, I ONLY WANT TO SEND AN EMAIL VIA AN API CALL. IS THIS POSSIBLE?
- in my own server side application, users are registering - for my own app, my own product support etc. part of which they are opting into email from me.
- at the moment they submit on my server side app, i want to (among all the other things i do there), i want to also sent them a quick thank you email (i have a template made on kalviyo)
- this would be on a user-by-user basis, small volume 5 a day would be a stellar day. more like 3 per week avg.
so: should i just somehow download my template as HTML bundle and mail it via my own php script? my own smtp? this seems primitive. can’t i send directly one email to one person via API? … i tried 2 endpoints so far: list/members and subscribe. both worked to ADD the user to a single-opt-in list (i called it “REGISTERED”) but just adding them to that list does not send them an email on klaviyo.
I then added a FLOW simply stating “if new suscriber, then trigger the email to be sent” .. but no dice. the user is added to members and list via API no problem, but the flow doesn’t trigger.
Then i saw a different endpoint in the docs to render and send template. is that the one i need? it said my account would need some kind of verification to use that endpoint. Help?
