Let’s face it: there’s nothing worse than feeling bogged down by manual tasks that could easily be automated. The eCommerce landscape is competitive, and we know your time is better spent doing more high-level strategizing — which is why we’ve introduced Shopify Flow Templates to help you operate more efficiently with premade custom workflows.
As Shopify’s preferred advanced subscription app, we are committed to helping your DTC brand run as smoothly as possible, which starts with improving your internal communications and overall organization. Here is everything you need to know about how our recent Shopify Flow update can help you work Smartrr.
Shopify Flow is a free-to-install Shopify app for eCommerce merchants on Shopify Plus or Advanced plans that allows you to create custom workflows so you can automate tasks both directly in your store and across your apps. And the best part is it’s completely out of the box (yep, that means no coding required).
And because we’re a big proponent of efficiency, we took things a step further by creating these workflows on your behalf.
Smartrr’s Shopify Flow Templates strengthen your subscription offering by streamlining your communication and organization.
🧠Here’s how it works:
With Smartrr x Shopify Flow, you can set up triggers to notify your team via Slack whenever an important event occurs.
For example, your team can instantly get notified if a subscription transaction attempt fails. Considering that up to 48% of subscription churn is reportedly caused by failed payments, this is a simple yet highly effective (and necessary) retention tactic.
You can also get notified if a subscriber pauses their subscription or cancels their subscription order. Ensuring your entire team is equipped with this information means you can quickly jump to retention strategies, like sending a personalized message with a discount to re-engage a subscriber.
Easily reward customers for their first subscription order with Smartrr’s loyalty flow. After a first-time subscriber creates their inaugural order, they’ll automatically have their tier status changed and start accruing loyalty points.
Having a detailed record with accurate subscription data is essential for running a business – and gone are the days of having to manually add a row to your spreadsheet.
With Smartrr x Shopify Flow Templates, you can set up a trigger so that every canceled subscription immediately gets added to your spreadsheet in real time. This way, all you have to worry about is analyzing the data and implementing optimizations.
Shopify Flow also opens the door to a world of opportunities to enhance your subscription experience through your creator strategy with Smartrr + Shopify Collabs.
Collabs enables creators to work directly with merchants to promote their products — and Flow can help automate some of the tedious tasks associated with this partnership, like approving an applicant or congratulating a creator on their first sale.
At Smartrr, we know the substantial impact that creators can have on scaling your subscription offering. That’s why we’re hard at work to develop a subscription-led Shopify Flow Template specifically for Collabs.
In other words, stay tuned. 👀
