Finding the Right Mailchimp Alternative for Shopify [Transition + Special Offer]

Mailchimp alternative for Shopify

Breaking up isn’t easy. And, if you are using Mailchimp for Shopify, you’ve already learned the news: Mailchimp and Shopify are getting a divorce. The bottom line is that MailChimp will cut off native integration with Shopify as of May 12th, according to a statement they released on March 22nd. For Shopify merchants using Mailchimp, this means that you are left in need of an Mailchimp alternative for Shopify — fast.

The good news is that there are more fish in the sea and Mailchimp alternatives for Shopify merchants.

Marketers currently using Mailchimp for Shopify now have the perfect opportunity to upgrade to ContactPigeon. Our app’s deep data integration to Shopify allows you to be able to execute everything you were doing with Mailchimp — and much more. Our platform offers more robust omnichannel features that Mailchimp can’t. This means a wider reach to your potential customers and higher sales.

Better still, we offer you our full-migration support for a seamless, smooth, stress-free transition. Have we piqued your interest? Read on for more details.

What does the Shopify and Mailchimp break up mean for merchants?

Moving on is hard to do, however, if you have been using Mailchimp for Shopify, it is no longer a viable option to keep your brand competitive and relevant. Here are two reasons why.

1. Loss of data integration means less effective email campaigns

The loss of data integration between Shopify and Mailchimp means that you can no longer create data-driven campaigns.

This is because you no longer have access to real-time APIs that integrate with your CRM, CMS, and other marketing tools. The fact that mailchimp and shopify are not synching means that you can’t create responsive email campaigns that target and engage customers with the most up-to-date information. The loss of real-time data integration means you can’t send campaigns such as Back-in-Stock or recommend cross-sell products with data directly from your product catalog.

2. No more web behavior / eCommerce triggered campaigns – abandoned cart, repurchase reminders, and more…

It’s a fact: campaign messages are more effective when they are tailored to your customers, and optimally timed. Since Shopify merchants can no longer use the native Mailchimp app, you’ve lost a crucial bridge to connect your visitor web behaviors and ecommerce history to determine optimal moment to trigger your messages.

Without data integration, even the basic function of adding a new subscriber is at risk.
