Hi all

I have a blog on shopify where I publish a review about a new product every month. I want people who agreed to receive my newsletter while purchasing a product or people having signed up manually for my newsletter to receive an email automatically when the new review is published. I managed to set up a new list in mailchimp so that people who manually sign up appear there. To be more specific:

  • How can I also make people appear there who purchase a product and agree to receive my newsletter?  
  • How do I link my blog to this list so that these guys receive all my newly published reviews by mail?  

Thanks for your help and ideas!

You will need to install the free Mailchimp app (https://apps.shopify.com/chimpified), that will add every customer who agrees to receive marketing emails to the list you select when you set up the app.

Then you need to create an RSS campaign in Mailchimp and use your Shopify store's blog RSS feed (usually http://www.yourdomain.com/blogs/news.atom) and link that campaign up to the list with your customers.

Every new blog post will then be sent to that list by Mailchimp.

Hi Thomas, I'm trying to do the same thing as hjalmar but when I click on the link  http://www.yourdomain.com/blogs/news.atom it's taking me to a third party Mac junk cleaner, not to anything I'm looking for ! Can you confirm this is the correct link ? Thanks. Una

@Una: You need to replace www.yourdomain.com with your store's domain.

Hi Thomas! I am trying to take a blog post from my shop's website and send it out as an email the way I do weekly newsletters. You mentioned "Mailchimp," but the link you provided says that this is no longer a service... Is there any other way someone can send a blog in an email to their subscribers? Please let me know!
