This guide provides a comprehensive overview of the Order Confirmation Email Flow, a crucial component of the post-purchase customer experience on Shopify. By creating this automated flow, you can provide customers with order details, build trust, and potentially encourage additional engagement or reviews.
Creating an order confirmation flow from scratch:
Step 1: Go to the “Journeys” tab and click on the “Create journey” button
Step 2: Click on “Start from scratch” card
Step 3: Choose the trigger
Select “Shopify Activity” as the journey trigger from the options
You can trigger the Order Confirmation Email Flow using Shopify's "Placed Order" activity event. Here's how it works:
- Placed Order Event: This event is automatically triggered when a customer successfully places an order on your Shopify store.
The Order Confirmation Email Flow is automatically initiated when an order is placed, ensuring that customers receive timely and accurate confirmation emails.
Step 4: Add Emails using the “Send Campaign” block
Ensure that the email is personalized with the customer's name and order details. You need to send this email immediately after the customer places the order so no need to add time delay blocks in this flow.
