Sending emails is an important part of your rewards program success! However, we also want to be mindful of sending too many emails to customers when they don't wish to receive them. This can cause your customers to feel spammed, and upset. Because of this, we offer your customers the option to manage their email preferences at any time.
Here's what we’re covering:
- How customers can unsubscribe for email notifications sent from Smile
- Types of emails
- Can I remove the address at the bottom?
How customers unsubscribe
If your customers no longer wish to receive email notifications sent through Smile, they can easily manage their email preferences to opt out of any future email communications.
Each email notification that is sent from Smile on your behalf includes a Manage my preferences link where they can choose which emails they’d like to receive.
Once they’ve clicked on the Manage my email preferences link they’ll be directed to our unsubscribe page. Here they’ll have the choice to unsubscribe from confirmation emails, reminder emails, or promotional emails.
Once they’ve clicked Save preferences, they will see a message that lets them know that their preferences have been updated and they will no longer receive email notifications that are sent n your behalf from Smile.
Note: If a customer unsubscribes from confirmation or reminder notifications Smile sends on your behalf, this will not automatically unsubscribe them from other email communication you may be sending from another email service provider.
If a customer unsubscribes from promotional emails, this will update their future subscription status for other marketing communications on Shopify only.
Types of emails
Confirmation emails are sent when customers complete an action in your rewards program, including:
- Earning points
