When you provision SendGrid Marketing Campaigns, your existing SendGrid add-on is given access to the Marketing Campaigns Application, along with the contact storage you selected. To verify this, please log in to the SendGrid interface to access Marketing Campaigns features. Upon logging into the interface for the first time, you will be required to verify your email address.
With Marketing Campaigns, you will be able to add, upload, and remove contacts in one place to ensure your list is up to date. You can also view and edit each contact individually as needed.

heroku addons:upgrade command to migrate to a new plan.

Removing the add-on
SendGrid Marketing Campaigns can be removed via the CLI. If you accidentally remove the SendGrid Marketing Campaigns add-on, your contact storage will be restricted to 2000 contacts. However, re-adding SendGrid Marketing Campaigns will restore your access to the previous number of contacts selected. If you remove SendGrid Marketing Campaigns, this does not automatically remove your SendGrid account. In order to completely remove SendGrid from your Heroku account, you must make calls to remove both add-ons.
$ heroku addons:destroy sendgrid-marketing-campaigns -----> Removing sendgrid-marketing-campaigns from sharp-mountain-4005... done, v20 (free)
