How to Apply the Shopify Custom Filters in SMSBump
Let’s show you how to setup your SMS marketing campaign targeting before you launch it.
Head to Text Marketing > Shopify Customers and select the Custom filters in the Send To field.
Click the Plus icon to open up the dropdown with all the filters to select your audience segmentation method.

Let’s say we want to send an appreciation message to all customers who came back and made a second order in our Shopify store.
Select Number of orders, Equal to and enter 2.
Click Apply and now your campaign will be sent only to customers who have purchased from you twice.
The filter is applied and now you can craft your message to show your customers you appreciate them. This is a great way to build customer loyalty.
You can decide whether you want to encourage customers to subscribe to one of your lists, or just give them a discount straight away.
For example, you can promote your VIP Discount club where subscribers will receive SMS promotions and updates with your latest deals.
Let’s say you already have a number of customers that are important for you and you’ve given them a VIP tag.
You can use that tag and message all the customers in your Shopify store that have it.
Select the custom filter called Tagged with and enter VIP in the text field. (Learn about Shopify customer tags here)
Tailor your message so it’s attractive to your customers and place the offer in a clear and simple way.
Paste the link to the products you want to promote and enable the link shortening.
You don’t even need to enter any discount codes in the message.
Simply embed them in the links, so customers will be able to shop and checkout with their discount already waiting for them.
Setup your Shopify discount code, click the Add discount code checkbox and select the code in the dropdown that will popup here:
In the final campaign overview, you can check out how the message will look like.
As you can see, the link is shortened and it will lead your subscribers to the collection where they can start shopping with 25% off.
This is not all! We saved the best for last!
