If you are currently sending certain emails via Shopify, such as abandoned checkout or delivery notifications, that you plan to start sending via Rush Smart notifications, Omnisend or Klaviyo, you will need to disable these emails in Shopify to avoid sending them twice. Make sure to disable these emails right before you enable the corresponding flow in Rush Smart notifications, Omnisend or Klaviyo to avoid a gap in sending.
