I want to send my customers an automated email on the anniversary of the 1st date they ordered with us , so on 265 days after 1st order with a discount

 

Any ideas to how I can do this?

I think you mean 365 days. And yes, it's easy to do within Shopify.

- First, create an email using the Shopify Email app.

- Create the segmentation of your customers that fall within that category:

- Click customers on the left menu, then segmentation, create segment and write:
first_order_date = -1y OR first_order_date = -2y OR first_order_date = -3y OR first_order_date = -4y OR first_order_date = -5y OR first_order_date = -6y OR first_order_date = -7y OR first_order_date = -8y or first_order_date = -9y OR first_order_date = -10y then save the filter to something like "First Order Placed - Past 10 Years"

- Create an automation using the new segment

The end

You can use up to 10 filters. Remove any additional filters.

 

It gives me this message?

 

For the automation - what do I use as trigger?

Probably a daily schedule trigger.
