Lob

Introduction 

Lob is an online service that allows you to send direct mail to your users.
 

Integration 

The MoEngage and Lob integration leverages MoEngage connectors and the Lob APIs to send mail like letters, postcards, and checks through the mail.

 

Prerequisites

1. Ensure you have access to your Lob dashboard.

2. Ensure that you have your Lob API key. Your Lob API key can be found under the settings section under your name in the Lob dashboard.

 

Step 1: Select Lob endpoint

The HTTP URL to request in the connector is different for each action you can make to Lob. In the following example, we use the postcards API endpoint https://api.lob.com/v1/postcards. Visit the complete endpoint list  to select the endpoint appropriate for your use case.
