Tired of manually creating the subscriber in Sendlane whenever there is a new customer entry on Shopify?
In this article, I’m going to tell you, how to integrate Shopify with Sendlane and automate the tasks within a few minutes. You must be aware that there is no native integration between these tools. So, we’ll be using a third software in between i.e. Pabbly Connect to perform this automation.
Basically, Pabbly Connect is an integration software that helps you share data among multiple applications in real-time for automation.
Moreover, setting up the workflow would be a one-time setup & after that, the created workflow will take care of the rest. Also, you don’t have to be a developer for using this tool, even a non-techy person can use Pabbly Connect efficiently.
