Recover Abandoned Orders with MailChimp
Creating a MailChimp Marketing Campaign
If you have the Pro or Premium Plan, you can enable the Abandoned Order Recovery Email feature from the Emails section under Settings on the admin panel. Another way to send the Abandoned Order recovery email is by using the MailChimp App from the Apps Gallery, a feature which can be used by All Plans.
Important Note: The MailChimp Abandoned Recovery email is different from the default Jumpseller Abandoned Recovery email in the Emails section. If you have them both enabled (Pro and Premium Plans), it means that there will be two sources sending recovery emails to customers with Abandoned orders, at their scheduled times, which can hurt your spam ranking. In order to avoid this, you can turn off the Abandoned Recovery email from the Jumpseller Emails menu under Settings.
