Add Your Shopify Customers to AWeber

Since it’s easier to get a repeat customer than obtain a new customer, it only makes sense to follow up with your customers after they purchase from you.

For the thousands of businesses using Shopify, building stronger relationships with your customers is now easier than ever.

Our users who sell products through PayPal liked the AWeber Paypal integration a lot, and we knew we had to make it that easy for you to integrate with other ecommerce platforms, too.

Once you’ve integrated Shopify with AWeber, you can easily add buyers to the appropriate mailing list in your account when they purchase one of your products.

About Shopify

Shopify is a unique ecommerce solution that allows you to create an online storefront. For example, here’s how The Oatmeal looks on Shopify:

Products and prices are clearly visible, along with filtering options to find specific products. Shopify allows you to pick from over 100 templates (or design your own) so you can create an online store that fits your image. Products can be purchased via credit card on your secure shopping cart hosted by Shopify.

How Does Shopify Work with AWeber?

With just a few simple steps, you can have your Shopify customers added to the AWeber list of your choice. But that’s not all! You also have the ability to assign customers to a specific list depending on which product they bought:

The ability to assign a specific list based on the product allows for more targeted emails. You’ll know customers on that list share a common interest, and you can send emails relevant to their interests.

How Do I Get Set Up?

If you haven’t already, you’ll need to set up your account with Shopify.

After that, just follow these easy instructions to link that account with AWeber!

    Nice one, when are you going to integrate with WHMCS?

    I tell you, that will make you good money.

    Think about it.

    When a person is added this way are they then sent a confirmation message where they have to click the link to confirm opt-in? It would be great to use this feature to automatically send an email with a link to the downloadable product the person just bought, but if instead the email they get first says, “please confirm your subscription to xxx group” that’s not a very good customer experience.

    Okoji – thanks for the suggestion! I’ll pass it on.

    Mike – The Shopify app is designed to allow your customers to have the opportunity to join your mailing list after purchasing something from you. In order to add them to a mailing list, you need to ask permission first since purchasing something from you does not necessarily mean they want to receive emails from you. If you are using the integration to send them to a download page, you can customize the confirmation message and set the confirmation link to send them to your download page.

    […] Checkout now joins PayPal and Shopify as one of our shopping cart […]

    I’m with Mike … I need to look for another mail program because of this problem … if they already agreed to receive mail, my first contact needs to be something meaningful to them … not “can you do me a favor!”

    Is there any way to capture my Shopify browsers who have not purchased yet? Based on browsing behavior or something? I have many people who browse in my list (they may have opted n for a white paper or something); now, based on what they do on Shopify, I want to add them to a list and send them a promotion or something.

    Any options?

    I am considering AWeber and this is a definite pus if it exists!

    Can you make an integration that works with opencart?
