Engagement with customers and potential customers is an important part of running an ecommerce website. Email addresses can and should be collected dueing the checkout process (with an ‘opt out of communication’ checkbox as in Sellerdeck). you can also ‘harvest’ email adresses by having a ‘Sign Up’ form in your website’s footer or sidebar so people can express interest in hearing about your products and developments. MailChimp is an excellen system and integrates readily into Sellerdeck.

First sign up for a Mail Chimp account
