The Amazon SES Free Tier

Like many Amazon Web Services, Amazon SES has a free tier:

Here’s what this means for you:

  • You can send 2,000 messages per day for free if you use Amazon SES from Amazon EC2 (or via AWS Elastic Beanstalk).
  • After 2,000 messages, you will be charged the current Amazon SES rate of $0.10 per thousand messages.
  • Data transfer fees still apply, but currently all data transfer in is free, and your first GB of data transfer out is also free.
  • Attachment charges still apply, which are currently $0.12 per GB.
  • You can take advantage of the Amazon SES free tier for more than a year (as many of our customers already have!).

We hope this helps you understand our free tier better. For more information, please refer to the Amazon SES pricing page.
