Hey Sam,

There is no out-of-the-box solution in Shopify that would cover your scenario. You'll have to implement your own service and host it separately. You can use Shopify Admin API, Webhooks to subscribe to new orders and keep track of the date the purchase was made as well as whether the SMS was already sent to the customer.

Hi there,

I think you could solve it this way. Not totally w/in Shopify, but using some plug-and-play services:

  1. Hook Zapier up to your store: https://zapier.com/apps/shopify/integrations/ 
  2. Sign up for a service like SimpleTexting (https://simpletexting.com/).
  3. Whenever some makes a purchase, Zapier syncs their record to SimpleTexting.
  4. SimpleTexting is your CRM and trigger an SMS at the right time. (https://simpletexting.com/features/autoresponders/)

If you're looking for a simpler solution, you might consider one of the cron services which will load a specific URL at a given time.
For example,  I've used this service: https://www.easycron.com.

I was able to set this up for you in our new automation app, Mr. Arigato in just a few minutes. You can find it in our Workflow Library under "Send an SMS message to customer 6 months after purchasing a particular product". You can add additional actions to also send them an email at the same time if you needed it.
