Bulk Account Inviter

You can use the Bulk Account Inviter app to invite your customers to activate their accounts for your online store. This app is useful after you have imported customer accounts from another platform or from another Shopify store.

Add Shopify's SPF record to your domain host (custom domains only)

Shopify uses the Sender Policy Framework (SPF) to verify the email address you use for the automatic notification emails that your customers receive, known as your customer email address. This prevents notification emails from being flagged as spam. It also removes the via Shopify note from the sender information, and displays your customer email address instead of no-reply@shopify.com in the sender field.


  1. Log in to your domain hosting account.

  2. Find your domain's TXT record. This usually appears beside the CNAME record and MX record.

  3. Add the following SPF record to your TXT record: v=spf1 include:shops.shopify.com ~all

  4. Save your changes.

Invite customers in bulk

You can invite customers in bulk by sending emails to an entire customer group. For more information on creating these groups, refer to Create customer groups. When you have created these custom groups, follow these steps to invite your target customers.


  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Apps and open the Bulk Account Inviter app.

  2. In the Customer group drop-down menu, choose the customer group that you want to invite.

  3. Click Create Email. By default, your invites are generated from your Account invite notification template. If you want to change the subject or the content of these emails, then edit the Subject and Custom message fields.

  4. Choose an email address from the email drop-down list. This is the email address that your customers see when they receive the invitation.

  5. Click Review and then click Send email.

The email invitations are sent. Depending upon the number of customers that you invite, it can take a while for all the invitations to be sent.
