Email discount code to new newsletter customers

Hello community,

I was wondering if there any way to email a discount voucher as soon as the customer signs up to your newsetter, rather that send it yourself manually at a later stage. This is very common in many eshops but I cannot find any such functionality in the Admin page (i.e. notification, customer etc)

Thanks a lot in advance

If you use mailchimp for your list, you can set it up as an automation. if you are using the free mailchimp, automation is an additional fee. To get around this, I've been using Klaviyo and have synced my mailchimp to it. I have set it up so that once someone signs up to my mailchimp list, Klaviyo sends a discount code. I hope this helps!

I am using the Swell Rewards, which has automation. I now have to figure Mail Chimp out so I can actually MAKE the newsletters LOL

Thanks for your heads up to Klaviyo. Is it also possible through Klaviyo to send a different discount code to each customer? Either by importing bulk codes, or by pointing Klaviyo to get them them directly from your Shopify Discounts

Hello, I am using MailChimp and Coupon Courier! 🙂 I use Bulk Coupon to create codes in bulk and import them to the coupon courier app.

I'm thinking of doing this too... maybe just setting up one discount code that has a year expiry date, but setting it to be single use per customer.

What is a good value to use for the discount?

I have a pop up on my store that gives 'new' customers a coupon code for joining our email list.  I recently found out that a percentage (15-20%) are using a new email everytime to get a new code.  I'm rethinking this,  Instead, I'm considering giving them something else and saving the coupon code for a future email.

Hi Nikos,

There is an app called Spently, which is an app that allows you to create custom Shopify email notifications. When a customer creates an account on your store, they will automatically receive a confirmation email to let them know the account was created. With Spently, you can customize the new account email to your liking (as well as all other Shopify notification emails) and one of the great features that Spently offers is the ability to include dynamically generated coupon codes in any notification email sent through Shopify.

Spently gives you the option to offer dynamic or single use coupon codes with a dollar amount or a percentage discount...and they tie right into your discount code generator on your shopify admin. Check them out on the app store or here: http://spently.com.

If you don't want to pay for an app, you can always add your own static coupon in any notificaiton email template on your Shopify admin and the custoemr will receive the coupon in the notification email when it is sent to them. 

Another option is to find apps that offer coupons for customers that join your mailing list. There are a ton of them on the app store. Good Luck!

One discount Code, with Expiry Date - 1Use works (as Sarah Brown said). Also what we do is that,  When you ship customer's items, we include a discount card for their next purchase. Lots of our customer uses them when they reorder. People also like to have a physcal card, more than emails. It is more personal. 

We tried Swell, people dont use the points somehow... and bulk discount is way too complicated. Keep it simple.

I recently switched to Privy - Free email popups for newsletter sign-ups which is easy to use and sends a coupon code/discount immediately to my potential customer. Then I have Smart & Easy Email Marketing by Bizzy for sequential email marketing that automates my email blasts and allows me to create messages and promos quicker than any other app I have used before.

I have found great success using optinmonster. Not only does it increase newslettersignup but it also makes it easy to automate sending out discount codes.  Lots of great features.

Hi Kevin, I have looked at optinmonster but wasn't sure how well it would integrate with Shopify.  Any problems?  What should I know?

Hi Katerine,

I have used it on a non-shopify account and it has worked very well.

Their documentation seems pretty easy:

Hello,

You can also try our Ecommerce landing page and popup app for Shopify where you can make popups that when a user enters their email, they will automatically see the coupon within the popup after signing up.

Also, we offere landing pages, split testing and a bunch of cool features.  We will also help you with your initial setup and try and get everything working as you hope.  

We are making a bunch of upgrades so there might be some bugs but we'll try and work with you to do whatever you are hoping 🙂  Feel free to ask me any questions also.

Take a look at Soundest. For newsletter signup you can choose between a one time email or a 3-email campaign We also use it for abandoned cart and all our email campaigns instead of mailchimp. It also does order thank you and customer reactivation emails.

Some of these are nice solutions but they all generally run too pricey. I mean if you're a watch company making a few hundred off a sale, good for you. But for small craft sites even $10/month stacks up to the nickel and dime nature of everything else.

Keep up the good work guys but cheapen your prices. If I have to pay the minimum and you without great features for all those but your top-tier clients it's grating on the nerves.
