Merge tags are the smart personalization tags that we can use to get dynamic data values. You can personalize your emails in by using merge tags in FunnelKit Automations.
FunnelKit Automations offers various merge tags related to email, user’s information, order items, cart data, order data, and so much more.
You can find merge tags in Automations and Broadcasts.
In this documentation, you’ll learn how to use merge tags when creating your email in a rich text editor and drag-drop builder.
Here we'll be using abandoned cart automation as an example. Therefore, we have selected the event - Cart Abandoned and Send Email as the action.
