Next-gen API v1.0

Introducing the Cakemail Next-gen APIs, allowing you to send transactional emails, deploy email marketing campaigns, manage and segment contacts, report analytics, and much more. All emails are routed through our infrastructure, ensuring optimal performance and deliverability.

OpenAPI for easy integration
Next-gen APIs are based on OpenAPI specifications, giving developers access to all API parameters and easy integration paths. Based on the new Restful and CORS (Cross Origins Request Server) API standards, OpenAPI offers flexibility and power. There’s no need to request a user key — any Cakemail customer can start using the APIs right away. Documentation is available at:

A more extensive and interactive API Reference
Find all the information you need, thanks to an extensive and detailed API Reference. You’ll be able to test all API functions directly in the documentation to see exactly what the Next-gen APIs can do before you start your integration.

In-depth integration guides
Real-life examples help you understand how you can connect the Cakemail APIs to your application.

Custom subscription forms
Build your email lists your way using the new Form API to create custom subscription forms and define opt-in parameters.

Dedicated Partner API
Partners and resellers are Cakemail's core business. To support you, we’ve built a new, dedicated Partner API that allows you to provision, configure, manage, and monitor sub-accounts.

Limited to qualified partners, the Partner API allows resellers to support their clients by carrying out all operations offered by the Cakemail APIs — including list syncing, campaign management, and logs access.

Sender identity management and authentication
The Account API now includes new resources for managing sender identity and authentication — both of which are critical to ensuring your communications reach subscribers' inboxes.

The resources provided through sender identities management enable you to create one or more verified senders for all your Cakemail accounts. The simple process of implementing sender authentication will have a considerable positive impact on your delivery performance.

High-capacity & optimized transactional email delivery
The Transactional API now allows you to send your emails via the SMTP protocol, taking advantage of Cakemail's high-capacity servers, optimized IP addresses, delivery monitoring, and email optimization systems. You’ll also be able to optimize email performance by monitoring transactional email logs and metrics through the Analytics API.

No need to code: simply connect your app to the Transactional API via the SMTP protocol and start sending transactional emails via our servers through your Cakemail account.

Higher security standards
Next-gen APIs ship with higher security standards. We have chosen the OAuth 2.0 authentication standard for all API calls, which delivers higher security than the usual user key-password combination — removing the risk of having a static key waiting indefinitely on your server.

The Cakemail APIs are also fully hosted in Canada, which means Canadian privacy laws and protocols govern your data.
