Fairing to Yotpo: Shopify Flow

Using Shopify Flow

Shopify Flow is a free application created by Shopify inside the app store. It empowers you to build custom automations that help you run your business more efficiently.

You’ll be able to create unique workflows without needing to code. This gives you more time to focus on growing your business.

Inside Flow, you can connect your apps together to complete even more jobs, and can support nearly any task you can think of.

What is Fairing?

Fairing is a Shopify Plus Certified post-purchase survey (PPS) for marketing attribution that gives you actionable consumer insights. Businesses can harness real-time, zero-party data with survey responses provided directly from your consumers.

You can deploy survey questions inside your post-purchase experience, append each response to your customer’s order data and use the insights across your marketing stack. By simply creating a "How did you hear about us?" attribution PPS, your business stands to greatly improve your marketing ROI.

What is Yotpo: Email marketing & SMS?

Yotpo helps merchants grow their brand with intuitive email & SMS marketing.

They enable your business to create powerful email & SMS campaigns and create automated flows that run on autopilot to drive sales and build relationships with your customers. Not only that, their AI feature helps you save time. It helps you write better texts, send at optimal times, build audiences, and even choose products to recommend in your emails.

Setting it up

  1. The first step is making sure you have signed up, downloaded, and set up the relevant applications in the app store. This includes: Shopify Flow, Fairing, and Yotpo.

  2. Inside your store, go to your applications and go to Flow.

  3. Once inside, select “Create workflow”. On the next page, select “Select a trigger”. For Fairing, we currently only have one operational trigger: “New survey response”.

  4. At this point, you’ll be in Flow’s workflow screen. Here, search for Fairing and select “New survey response” as your trigger.

  5. If need be, set conditions that suit your workflow (this is optional).

  6. Thereafter, we set the final action. Once clicked, search for Yotpo Email Marketing & SMS. This will allow you to select Yotpo’s sole action here which is to “Send SMS via SMSBump”.

  7. Once that has been done, add variables (also known as environment values) to give your workflow data to work on. This includes the contact information of your customers, as well as your intended message.

  8. And voila, your workflow has been created!
