Hi there, 

I am busy in the pre-launch phase of my store and I am wanting to collect as many email subscribers as possible. Currently I have a home page that is the 'coming soon' page with the option to subscribe. 

Before I launch this page I want to be able to set up an AUTOMATED welcome email to everyone who subscribes. I have loaded the shopify email app but I don't see the option to do this type of email? 

Can anyone help with advice or if I need to integrate a different app that allows for this automation? low to no cost please. 


Thank you,

Hello @Giulia3,

About your post about the need to setup a welcome message on your website,I will like to recommend There you'll setup different flows like welcome flows,add to cart and so on so after then you can simply integrate it and let it start funtioning and serving the function.

Kindly reply if my response is helpful and do not mind coming to my DM for any help.
