Show off (and sell!) your ConvertKit Commerce products right from your emails
Instead of linking to your ConvertKit Commerce product in your email, you can add a rich embed of it that looks like this:
It's a beauty, isn't it? 😍 Let's cover how you can set it up.
NOTE: We have a separate article that shares how you can include a discount in your product embed!
Adding the product embed to your emails
To add this rich embed, open the broadcast or sequence email in which you want to embed your ConvertKit Commerce product.
Click the line of your email below which you want to embed your product.
Next, click the + button that appears on the left. Select the Product option in the content block menu that pops up.
Use the Product menu in the right sidebar to select the product you want to embed in your email.
NOTE: At this time, you can embed only products created with ConvertKit Commerce (this includes ConvertKit tip jars!) The embed feature won't work with products created on other platforms.
Customizing the product embed
Use the settings in the Elements menu to show or hide the price, description, image, and call-to-action button in your product embed.
You can also customize the text and colors of your call-to-action button.
NOTE: To update the title or the contents of the price, description, or image in the product embed, you will need to edit your ConvertKit Commerce product itself in the product builder.
Directing subscribers to the checkout page
When subscribers click the product embed's call-to-action button, they are directed to the main product page by default. They'd then have to click the call-to-action button on the product page to go to the checkout page.
Enabling the Go directly to checkout setting for your product embed will help subscribers skip the main product page (and check out quicker). ✌️
Removing the product embed from your emails
Click the Remove button at the bottom of the Product menu to remove the product embed from your email.
Removing a product embed from your email does not delete the underlying product associated with the embed.
On the other hand, if you delete your product itself, the product embed will still appear in any emails you've already sent to subscribers. However, subscribers who click its call-to-action button will see an error page.
It's also possible to include a discount in your product embed! Learn how to do so here 👇
