I am having trouble figuring out exactly how to have a different sender email address that customers will see e.g. (info@......com). Do I need to have a third party provider?? I have tried changing the sender address on shopify but then I stop receiving any of the forms. I've looked and many instructions online bur I just can't figure it out. Could someone please let me know the steps I need to take in order to have a different email address appear for customers when we email them.
Thanks for these details. I’m here to help.
I understand that you want to change your sender email address for your store. Is that right?
If so, you’re definitely on the right track. You will need a third-party email host to provide you with an email address that can send and receive emails. Shopify isn’t able to provide this for you but you can use your favourite email hosting service. Once you have your email address set-up, you can replace the sender email address on your store.
The sender email is your customer-facing email address. This is the email address that is displayed in the From field when your customers receive automatic notification emails, order confirmation emails, and any marketing emails sent from Shopify. Some domains might require additional authentication, otherwise your sender email address might appear with via shopifyemail.com, or as firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your sender email address is DMARC protected, then your email address might appear in inboxes as email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Replies from your customers will be forwarded to your chosen sender email address.
Here are the steps from our help doc to change your sender email address:
From your Shopify admin, go to Settings.
In the Store details section, change your email address under Sender email.
You can view all of this information in our help doc: Setting up your email.
Is this what you were looking to accomplish?
