Can you create multiple abandoned cart email sequences with Flow?

Hi. I've seen several places, here and elsewhere on the internet, that Shopify's native abandoned cart tool can only send 1 email, and that if you want a sequence (e.g., 2, 3, 4) follow up emails that you have to used 3rd party tools; however, I've also seen elsewhere people say it can be done without 3rd party tools with Flow.

 

Can anyone give insight into this? Can it be done with Flow? Can it be done by created 3 different automations, each for a different execution time/date?

 

Thank you.

This is an accepted solution.

I believe you can create as many of the flow-based marketing automations as you want:

Also I think you can send multiple emails separated by wait times within a single flow.

Yeah I believe you can do multiple abandoned cart emails now:

Previously you were limited to just one I think.

Can you point out in the link you shared where it says or implies multiple can be done?

 

The section, "When you create the new abandoned checkout automation through the Marketing > Automations section, your settings are carried over from your previous abandoned checkout settings. If you create a second abandoned checkout automation, then the automation defaults to a 10 hour wait time before the email is sent to customers and sends to only customers subscribed to marketing," does mention second automations; however, I read "second" to mean a new automation through the new tool (found through Marketing > Automations).

 

I tried testing this in a dev store, but it can't be done in a dev store.
