Currently, I have a mailing list on Mailchimp. Since the introduction of Shopify-Email, I now also have a list of users who have subscribed during the checkout process. This means I now have 2 lists.
I quite like the ease of the Shopify-Email templates.
So, therefore, am left wondering about
Perhaps I'm overlooking something?
Thankful for your advice.
I've found an article about how to connect Mailchimp to Shopify, you can read it here: https://avada.io/shopify/docs/connect-mailchimp-to-shopify.html
Maybe it could help.
As far as I understand, here are the answers to your questions:
There's this reviews about Shopify Email and how you create a customers form that collect email addresses to be used with Shopify Email, maybe you can take a look:
How do I change so that the pop up window on my website along with the sign up for email template on my website adds new email adresses to my Shopify Email and not to my Mailchimp? Right now people who sign up with their email adress is sent to a 404 error page.
I used to have Mailchimp, but have now switched to Shopify Email instead.
All the best!
