How to create a follow up on purchases automation with ConvertKit

One of the greatest ways to build loyalty with your customers is to reward them with a discount code for their next purchase when they buy something in your Shopify store.

From this article, you will learn how to create a post-purchase campaign with ConvertKit and Personal Discount.

Let's start by preparing post-purchase automation in the Personal Discount app. Open your Shopify dashboard > Apps > Personal Discount > Add automation. In the next steps pick ConvertKit as your Email Service Provider and Follow up on purchases as the Campaign Type.

Next, specify parameters of your automation such as the code pattern, the discount value, the expiration date, etc. Here is the guide on how to configure discount.

When you have finished setting up the automation, save it and copy the code snippet at the bottom of the page to the clipboard.

Now switch over to the ConvertKit. Create your post-purchase message. Click Send > Email Templates > New email template. You can select one of the pre-built templates or add your HTML code.

When you have finished preparing your template, Save it. Then navigate to the Send section > Sequence > Create new sequence. Then select the template which you prepared in the previous step.

In the next step, paste the code snippet from Personal Discount into your email sequence. Click the plus sign and select an HTML Block to insert this element into your template. Then, Edit this element and paste the code snippet from Personal Discount. Save the HTML Block changes and Publish changes in your sequence.

We already have everything we need to create the purchase automation. So let's navigate to the Automate section > Visual Automations > New automation.
