It would be very nice to be able to retrieve a customer's segments via Liquid.

Potential use case:

Create a segment that includes all customers with an abandoned cart less than 3 days old. Then, in a section or snippet, check if the current customer is a member of that segment. If so, show them a message directing them to their cart to complete their purchase.

Logic like this handled with tags in liquid. So for a feature like that to get traction there'd have to be a reason why tags as an established practice aren't suitable.

 

Shopify Marketing Automations(basic plan or higher) can tag customers and there are several abandoned flows

Abandoned carts , not abandoned checkouts,  can just be handled with javascript; set the date in a cookie > check date diff > is cart not empty? > show message.

Thanks, Paul. The messaging I'd seen around Shopify's Marketing Automations led me to believe it was strictly email oriented, and didn't include these sorts of workflows. I use another service for our emails and because of that hadn't looked too far beyond the surface for what was possible within Shopify.
