Choosing between email services for startup

For our early stage startups, we need to do outreach emails, transactional emails (login and notifications), weekly newsletters and behavioral/lifecycle emails for onboarding/reactivating dormant users. Currently, we are considering Buzzstream for outreach emails (but it is expensive), SparkPost/PostMark for transactional emails, Sendy/EmailOctopus/MailerLite for newsletters, and Intercom Engage/Autopilot for lifecycle emails. Ideally, we want to be able to consolidate all of this on one or two platforms, and minimize costs. -- So, I am wondering what/how is everyone using and their experiences with those tools?

    I recommend Stripo for email design. To send Mailchimp and Esputnik.

      In fact, I like it that my colleagues have a shared Stripo account. Convenient when a large number of people need to have access to work on and edit same projects. Would love to embed in my SaaS

      We had a separate person, who has created adaptive emails for our company. Now we don't need it anymore. As a Business Analyst I spent a few hours for creating more than 25 emails. Stripo really decreases expenses.

    This is purely wonderful for transactional (and only transactional)

    Great for non-transactional emails. Offers both API access and has a UI marketing email designer which works well.
