Shopify is a complete e-commerce solution that lets you set up an online store to sell your product. It helps you customize your digital store, organize your products, accept different payment methods, and track and respond to orders. Shopify is one of the most popular commerce platforms on the web, and you can directly integrate it with Mailmodo.
By integrating Shopify with Mailmodo, you can edit or add your store details like website URL, brand logo, order notification email, etc., in case anything needs alterations. You also have different payment options like Stripe, Razorpay, Cashfree, etc.
You can also set up a Shopify checkout page for payments. But you’ll need a Storefront Access Token, which we’ll get into later in this guide.
Mailmodo Shopify integration also lets you create abandoned cart journeys, product recommendation campaigns, order confirmation campaigns, reorder campaigns, and product review campaigns.
Now let's look at why and when you can use these features that come with the integration.
Different things you can do with Shopify integration
Here are the things you can do with Mailmodo’s Shopify Integration:
1. Abandoned Cart Journey
An abandoned cart is a shopping cart in which items get added, but they never make it to the transaction stage.
By integrating Mailmodo with Shopify, you can trigger emails to remind users of the products lying in their carts. Use Shopify abandoned cart widget in a template and set up the journey.
2. Product Recommendation Campaigns
Product recommendation campaigns help lure customers back, drive more sales, and increase conversions. You have to analyze customers' behavior to understand their purchasing behavior. Then you can send them relevant and target product recommendations.
Product recommendation campaigns are used when your customers have purchased a product, and you want to show products similar to the one they have purchased.
With Mailmodo’s Shopify integration, you can show product recommendations in promotional emails. You can do this by using the Shopify recommendation widget in the template and sending the campaigns to your customers.
3. Order Confirmation Campaign
Order confirmation campaigns are campaigns sent as soon as an order is placed.
By integrating Mailmodo with Shopify, you can send order confirmation emails with receipts and bills to the customer to verify the order placement. It is sent in response to each customer’s order.
4. Reorder Campaign
Reorder campaigns are sent to your customers after a few days from their last purchase.
With Mailmodo’s Shopify integration, you can send reorder campaigns to boost your revenue. Also, these campaigns are quite straightforward. A reorder message uses information from a customer's previous order to remind them of the purchase and encourage them to buy it again or purchase similar items.
It’s a gentle nudge to your customers to reorder the product after a few days from its last purchase.
5. Product Review Campaign
A product review campaign is sent to customers to nudge them to rate and review a recently purchased product.
You send a product review campaign because it’s a great way to boost customer engagement with your brand.
By integrating Mailmodo with Shopify, you can trigger product review campaigns after a few days of their last purchase.
How to configure your Shopify integration
1. Connect your store
After logging in to Mailmodo, go to the Integrations tab on the left panel. Look for Shopify integration and click on the click to configure. After clicking on it, a new window with Connect Your Store button will appear.
2. Add your details
Now you have to add all the relevant details to connect Shopify with Mailmodo.
Here are the things you’ll need:
The next step is to add your store name. The name of your store is a big deal to make your Shopify store successful. It is also one of the important brand elements and a key component contributing to your store from an SEO perspective.
When naming your store, keep it short, easy to remember and pronounce, and add a keyword in your name.
The next step is to add a custom app API key. The custom app API key is a password that tells Mailmodo the store you are trying to connect to is a legit store, and you are allowing your store data to be used by Mailmodo.
Now you have to add the admin access API token. It’s an authentication requirement used for authorization to sync data with Mailmodo.
