Ecommerce automation is being rapidly adopted by merchants, helping them save time while putting crucial tasks on autopilot, from managing customers to flagging fraud to communicating better.
To give merchants this flexibility to communicate with their shoppers more efficiently, we’re excited to announce that PushOwl now integrates with Alloy, a powerful automation solution that lets you set up and run workflows. With this integration, you can send highly relevant notifications to your customers based on specific actions and activities they perform or based on updates on your Shopify store.
Alloy offers automation capabilities that most Shopify stores typically don’t have access to. The Shopify automation app lets you set up workflows for different needs— automating marketing, customer service, shipping, fulfillment, tagging, and other manual, time-consuming tasks so you can focus on growing your store.
Co-Founders, Sara Du and Gregg Mojica launched Alloy on Product Hunt in 2019, quickly becoming the #1 product of the day all organically. This prompted them to apply to YC’s W20 batch. They’ve raised over $5M+ from top Silicon Valley investors and power Ecommerce automations for incredible brands like the Baltimore Ravens and Italic.
Alloy Automation is a no-code tool backed by top Silicon Valley investors that empowers Ecommerce stores to create automated workflows. We give stores access to enterprise grade automation power in an affordable, easy to use web platform.

Effective Use Cases with the PushOwl x Alloy Integration
The integration between PushOwl and Alloy allows merchants to set up highly specific web push campaigns and automated notifications based on specific triggers like an action taken by a customer or an update on your Shopify store.
You can send web push notifications in two ways:
- Web push campaigns: Send a campaign to all your subscribers for actions that impact your customers like if a new product or collection is added.
- Notifications to specific customers: Send a specific notification to a customer based on a condition they meet, like earning more rewards or placing an order.
The opportunities for the kind of web push notifications you send are endless with these flexible workflows. To get started, we’ve listed a few PushOwl-specific use cases for your Alloy workflows:
Enrich the customer experience by letting shoppers know when they climb a customer tier or earn more rewards. You can send a notification to your customer when their customer tag is updated or when they earn rewards through your loyalty program.
2. Different Shopify apps working together
Alloy gives you the opportunity to connect different apps like Yotpo and Recharge to provide a more holistic communication for your customers. So, for instance, you can set up an Alloy workflow that sends a web push notification to your shopper when their subscription is renewed.
3. Sophisticated transactional notifications
While Shopify lets you send transnational messages via email and SMS, you cannot send web push notifications about order updates. You can easily inform your customers about their order updates by setting up this workflow on Alloy.
4. Sending campaigns for new products or collections
If you want to update shoppers every time you launch a new product or a new collection, you can easily set up an automated campaign to be sent every time
If you don’t have time to build a workflow from scratch, you can pick up pre-made workflows from the Alloy marketplace.
We love automations. In fact, PushOwl was built with the power of specific automations in mind. The Alloy integration is fantastic because it enables our merchants to connect PushOwl to virtually any trigger in Shopify or in another app.
