What are Re-engagement Coupons?↑ Back to top
- Re-engagement Coupons allows you to send follow-up emails with a coupon code to your customers who have purchased from your site in the past but haven’t made a purchase recently.
- When the module is configured, the plugin automatically identifies the customers who are inactive on the site.
Once the inactive customers are identified, the follow-up emails can be sent either automatically/manually after a review.
- Sending follow-up emails with a coupon code to inactive customers is a proven way to gain their trust and make them purchase again on your site.
Setup and Configuration↑ Back to top
- When the plugin is activated for the first time, the plugin needs to scan the orders placed on the site. This is to identify the inactive customers. This one-time process has to be completed in order for the plugin to work.
- To complete this process go to Re-engagement Coupons > Customers. In this Tab, the following notice will be displayed.
“In order for the Re-engagement Coupons Module to work, the plugin needs to scan all the orders placed in the site. This is a one-time process”
- Please click the “Scan Orders” button to complete the one-time process. After that, the plugin will automatically keep track of the purchase history whenever an order is placed.
The settings for the plugin can be found in Re-engagement Coupons > Settings
The import process can take some time if the site has more users and orders.
