Newsletter subscription form

You can collect newsletter subscribers directly to your Smaily account using Magento built-in newsletter subscription form.

We recommend to use CATPCHA to prevent bots from polluting your newsletter subscribers list. You can use two options – Magento’s text-based CAPTCHA or Google reCAPTCHA.

Subscribers synchronization

Enable automatic subscribers synchronization feature under Subscribers synchronization section.

There is an option to import additional fields available from store into Smaily to personalize newsletter emails. Select fields you wish to synchronize along with subscription data. Subscriber Email and Name fields are automatically synchronized.

The synchronization frequency can be adjusted. Available values are: every 4 hours, twice a day, every day and once a week.

Abandoned cart emails

Enable abandoned cart emails feature under Abandoned Cart section to send cart reminder emails to store customers.

You need to create form submitted automation workflow in Smaily prior to activating this feature. You can follow our abandoned cart automation workflow manual.

After creating automation in Smaily you can find this automation under Autoresponder ID in plugin settings.

You can choose timing when cart is considered abandoned form 20 minutes up to 12 hours.
