Shopify - How to send a push notification when a New Product Arrives with Zapier/ RSS feed

Some users prefer to have their notifications sent through a product feed. Using a feed is a great method to use web push because you can make sure your notifications are fresh when you update it.

If you are looking to use data from the feed to trigger events as well, (ie. new products in stock, price drops, low stock, etc).

You're in luck!

We provide two solutions for this through RSS feed campaigns and also Zapier integration.

The first solution is the RSS feed campaign.

RSS feed campaign can listen for price drops, new products, low in stock etc. and go out to specific segments. You can find a detailed guide on RSS feed campaigns here: Creating RSS Feed Campaigns

Shopify RSS 1

When you add your RSS feed link to Aimtell, it will generate a preview (shown below).

The preview shows the: Title, Body, and Link of your post. These 3 variables will automatically be pulled from your RSS feed when you go to create an RSS Campaign. They will look like this when you create your RSS campaign draft: {rss_title}, {rss_body} and {rss_link}.

You can keep them as is, replace them with static text, or combine the two.

So if you are looking to use data from the feed to trigger events (ie. new products).

You could structure your feed to say

Title: Name of the product

Body: Details of the product

Link: The link that will take your subscribers to this product.

Shopify RSS 2

This is what your RSS draft will look like.

Shopify RSS 3

Remember {rss_title}, {rss_body} and {rss_link}. These 3 variables will automatically be pulled from your RSS feed when you go to create an RSS Campaign.

When filling out the content you could put:

Name: New Styles!

Title: Blue Sunglasses

Body: 40% Off for Summer Months!
