Connect your store
Step 1: Go to your MessageBird Dashboard
Go to the MessageBird Dashboard, log in with your MessageBird account, and then go to Solutions on the side navigation. Click cart re-engagement and tap Create Solution.

Step 3: Enter your store name
Enter the name of your store (you can find it in the Shopify profile of your store) and tap Next.
Step 4: Add webhooks
Follow the on-screen instructions to add your webhooks—you’ll be guided step by step through this process:
- Go to the Shopify Webhooks section
- Go to the Shopify webhook section by following the link in that step. Ready? Mark this step as Done.
- Webhook: Checkout Creation
- Follow the step by step instructions for the checkout creation webhook. Complete each step and tap Done when you’re finished.
- Webhook: Checkout Update
- Follow the step by step instructions for the checkout update webhook. Complete each step and tap Done when you’re finished. The instructions look the same as the ones in the previous step, but this time you need to select checkout update from the drop-down menu and not checkout creation like in the previous step.

Step 5: Specify your audience
We’re almost there! It’s time to set up the conditions that will trigger your webhooks. This means that the workflow will be triggered by an abandoned cart that meets the specific conditions that you set in this step. You can choose one of the template conditions or create your own by clicking + Add a condition.
Adding specific conditions will help you target a specific audience and personalize your message for them. This will facilitate a higher conversion rate and a higher value of recovered carts.

Step 6: Customize your message
This step allows you to customize the message that will be sent to your customers, which is crucial for recovering your abandoned carts—the pre-filled message will give you a nice head start.
You’ll notice that the cart recovery link has been automatically added to your message. If you want to offer a discount, simply turn on the option on the right side of your screen—the discount code will be automatically incorporated in the cart recovery link, just make sure your discount matches the one set up on your Shopify platform.
Keep your message short and snappy—if you choose SMS as the channel for your message, consider that it has a 160 character limit.

Step 7: Test the solution
You can test your abandoned cart message and save it as a draft to edit it later. Once you click save and launch, your cart abandonment message will be sent as soon as the webhooks are triggered.
