Text Funnels will automatically extract your customers within a defined segmentation. (The link you will send is a direct link to your store with a discount code)
Text Funnels can be set to automatically contact your abandoned checkouts within a pre-defined time-range and extract the abandoned checkout URL, and if you want, include a discount code. (The link sent is the abandoned checkout URL)
