What are WooCommerce Per Product Emails?

Step 3: Customize the WooCommerce Per Product Emails

Now, we will customize the imported WooCommerce email sequence.

Click on the WooCommerce event - Order Created and set when this sequence should run.

Select order created event trigger

Since we want to do this after a purchase is made, we will tick the Completed or Processing.

When the order is completed, i.e., when the customer receives the order in their hands, the automation will be triggered.

Click on Save once done.

Now, we'll customize the delay. You can set the delay in minutes, hours, days, weeks, and months.

But for this WooCommerce per product email sequence, we will keep it at 30 minutes. So, 30 minutes after the order is delivered - the automation will be triggered.

Further, you need to define what happens when the condition is met and when the condition is not met.

This WooCommerce per-product email sequence will run only when the defined product is purchased from the checkout page. Otherwise, you can set it as Exit.

Step 5: Create a Product-Specific Email

What Kinds of Per Product WooCommerce Emails You Can Send?

There are different types of post-purchase product-specific emails that you can send. Some of the most popular ones are:

Educational Emails

Some products need to be handled with care when first used. 

That’s why, in such cases, you can send an email educating the customer about how to unbox the item properly and how to set it up for the best use.

For example - table lamps, razors, beard trimmers, etc.

Review Collection Emails

Reviews and testimonials act as a trust seal for prospective buyers when they are considering buying something.

In fact, 93% of buyers have confirmed that reviews and testimonials are a convincing factor in their buying decisions. (Globe Newswire)

Set up a review collection email sequence and ask - what they like, what they don’t like, whether the product matches their expectations, and more.

Winback Emails

If you sell consumable products, it is crucial that you implement a WooCommerce per-product email sequence.

Because there are high chances that your customers will forget about the products, and might need a push to buy from you again.

This is where a winback campaign can work wonders.

Cross-selling Emails

You can cross-sell your products to customers who've recently purchased something from your store.

For example, if someone has bought shoes, you can set up a product recommendation email sequence for cross-selling shoe polish, socks, etc.

You can further customize these cross-selling emails by sending dynamic discount coupons for their next purchase.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg, you can do much more WooCommerce per product email sequences with FunnelKit Automations.

So, Are You Ready to Boost Your Sales with WooCommerce Per Product Emails?

Sending personalized emails - especially per product emails - can give you better email engagement and help you build a good relationship with your customers.

You can even create dynamic discount coupons for premium product buyers and encourage repeat purchases.

With FunnelKit Automations, you do it all - create WooCommerce per product email sequences for more of your products, offer discounts, collect reviews, add new orders to Google Sheets to track them, and so much more.
