Hi! I'm setting up my shopify store at the moment, transferring over from wix. At the moment I have an email list using mailchimp, but I'd ideally like to transfer over to shopify email so it's all in one place.

When customers sign up to my email list they get a discount code for 10% off - I'd like this to be sent automatically every time someone signs up. I've created an email campaign using shopify email however it doesn't seem to send out automatically - just when I click 'send' on the email. 

Does shopify email have the ability to send out automations right now or should I stick with mailchimp? Thanks!

Hi @lilackitten!

As you noticed, the Shopify Email app lets you only send manual campaigns. I'd also like to know if Shopify is planning to add automation to the Shopify Email app. For now, you'll need to stick with Mailchimp if you want to keep sending the automated welcome email. 

Thanks,

Hi there! Thanks so much for your reply. Ok no problem at all, I'll stick with mailchimp for now - hopefully shopify email will have it in the future, I'll keep an eye on it! Thanks again
