Hi,

Few queries on Marketing. 

1. Many times customers don't provide their e mail and provide there mobile number at abandon cart. So is there any automation that works like Shopify Email and send sms or Whatsapp messages to customers who don't provide email ?

2. Is there any way to show a pop up for some offer or other related products to customer after they have added products in their cart and before checkout ?

3. if i want to remind about promotional codes or any discount offers at cart page, how to do that ?

Your quick revert is highly appreciated.

Regards. 

Nishant.
