Order Confirmation Emails

If you're not receiving New Order Confirmation Emails, you will need to set up a new order notification automation so that it pairs with the current store connection.

First and Last Name are Required

If you're not seeing your subscribers you may want to check if your MailChimp list requires first and last name. If those are required all Guest Subscriptions are being rejected.
There are two ways to fix this:

  1. Enter a default first and last name into Apps > MailChimp configuration
  2. Change the settings on the list in the MailChimp admin to not require first name and last name.
