Info:Simple module to interface with the Sendy API (
Author:Peter Sanchez ( - (


  • It was written for Python 2.7+ and Python 3.6+
  • Depends on the requests module


  • Version 1.3b adds the new "title" variable to the create_campaign API call. It effects the default ordering of variables in the call. If you're upgrading from a previous version please ensure that you account for the new ordering of variables. This new variable was added in Sendy v2.1.2.6



pip install sendypy

Basic Manual Install:

$ python build
$ sudo python install

Alternative Install (Manually):

Place sendy directory in your Python path. Either in your Python installs site-packages directory or set your $PYTHONPATH environment variable to include a directory where the impersonate directory lives.


All the variables and response values are described in the Sendy API docs

Usage is simple

from sendy.api import SendyAPI
api = SendyAPI(host='', api_key='YOUR_API_KEY')

You don't need to set the api_key variable if you're using the subscribe or unsubscribe methods. You can also provide the optional "debug" variable (defaults to False). This will print debug into to stdout when sending a request to your Sendy install.


api.subscribe('list_id_here', '', 'optional first name', custom_field_1='value', custom_field_2='value', ...)

Optional fields

  • country: User's 2 letter country code.

  • ipaddress: User's IP address.

  • referrer: The URL where the user signed up from.

  • gdpr: If you're signing up EU users in a GDPR compliant manner.

  • hp: Include this 'honeypot' field to prevent spambots.

    data = {"gdpr": True, "ipaddress": "", "country": "US"}

    api.subscribe(list_id, email, **data)


api.unsubscribe('list_id_here', '')


api.delete('list_id_here', '')

Subscription Status

api.subscription_status('list_id_here', '')
