Email customers after purchasing a certain product

by Jed Storie (jed@fortco.tech)

Send an email to the customer with specific information regarding a product they just purchased. Useful for digital products, or anytime you'd like to communicate something extra about a product you offer. (Note: this does not replace the Shopify order confirmation email!)

Runs when an order is created. Configuration includes email subject, email body, and product sku.

15-day free trial – unlimited tasks
