Postmark WordPress – message streams integration
We 🧡 Postmark. We use their service for all our transactional communication.
Last year they shared their plan to also support marketing communication and bulk emails, i.e. newsletters, and product announcements. We couldn’t have been happier when we heard that! At that very moment, we decided to ditch Mailchimp and send our newsletters with ShopMagic Manual Actions.
We had to wait almost a year, but we finally got to their closed early access. We’ve tested the service and were very pleased with the results and wanted to introduce Message Streams to ShopMagic as soon as possible.
✅ Today you can also use Postmark for your marketing, newsletters, announcements, and all other communication sent with ShopMagic.
How to enable Message Streams support
- Add a new message stream in your Postmark account:
- Copy the stream ID. In the example above it is
- Turn on the integration with a filter (for example in your functions.php):
add_filter( 'shopmagic/core/postmark/enabled', '__return_true' );
- Add an email action to your automation and fill in the stream ID:
- Done 🎉!
All emails from this action will be sent with this stream to protect transactional and broadcast messages 📧.
