Shopify Integration

Gleam integrates with Shopify so you can automatically sync email subscribers you generate through Gleam campaigns with your Shopify customer list.

Our Shopify integration also allows you to easily add Competitions to your Shopify store.

Shopify integrations are available on the Pro plan & above.

Installing Gleam Competitions App in Shopify

The first step in integrating Shopify is visiting the Shopify store and installing the Gleam app.

You will then see the Gleam Competitions app appear inside your Shopify admin area, ready for you to install:

You can then see Shopify connected to your Gleam account under Settings > Integrations in the Gleam app:

Syncing Emails With Your Shopify Customer List

Once you have activated your integration with Shopify you can start automatically sending emails from your Gleam Competitions, Rewards and Capture campaigns to your Shopify customer list by finding Shopify under Settings > Integrations and selecting Add emails to Shopify customer list.

You can then optionally add tags to email subscribers acquired through your Gleam campaigns so you can easily identify and filter these users in your Shopify customer list.

Sending Emails to Shopify From Subscribe Actions

Once you have enabled Add Subscribe action entrants as customers you can easily send emails to your Shopify customer list from Competitions or Rewards campaigns by using our Subscribe action.

By default, emails will be sent to your Shopify customer list with the optional tags provided in Settings > Integrations. If you would like to use different tags for an individual campaign you can change Use site settings to Add different tags and add your prefered tags.

Sending Emails to Shopify From Capture

Once you have enabled Add Subscribe action entrants as customers you can easily send emails to your Shopify customer list from your Capture opt-in forms.

By default, emails will be sent to your Shopify customer list with the optional tags provided in Settings > Integrations. If you would like to use different tags for an individual Capture you can change Use site settings to Add different tags and add your prefered tags.

Testing Your Shopify Integration

In order to test if emails successfully sync with your Shopify customer list you need to do the following:

  • Created a Competition with a Subscribe action.
  • Ensure that this action is linked to Shopify.
  • Manually complete the Subscribe action from your Competition dashboard.
  • The action will become invalidated (since we automatically invalidate admin actions).
  • Go to the Actions tab for that Competitions and make your action valid.
  • It should appear in your Shopify customer list within a few minutes.
