The New Product Announcement feature utilizes the latest goods and services from your online store to design an AI-generated promotional email. After you add new products to your Shopify or WooCommerce store, use the New Product Announcement feature to share them with your customers.
In this article, you'll learn how to create a product announcement email after new products are added to your Shopify or WooCommerce store.

Without limiting the scope of the acceptable use policy, you agree not to use Generative AI to:
- Create or send any content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, vulgar, obscene, defamatory, pornographic, invasive of another’s privacy, or is otherwise objectionable;
- Create or send any content related to alcohol, tobacco, weapons, cannabis, vaping, health, or financial advice;
- Impersonate any person or entity or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent an affiliation with a person or entity (or create or send any content that does so);
- Use or attempt to use Generative AI (or Inputs or Outputs) for any purpose that is in violation of any applicable law, would create any legal obligations or liability for Mailchimp, or is otherwise an infringement on the rights of any person or entity;
- Modify, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble or reproduce any of the Mailchimp licensed or owned software, systems, applications or components used; or
- Use deceptive, misleading, or unethical practices that are or might be detrimental to Mailchimp or the general public, such as to disseminate misinformation and/or malware.
Without limiting any right of Mailchimp, we may immediately suspend or terminate your access to Generative AI or any content generated thereon.
How it works
The New Product Announcement feature is available after you’ve sent at least 5 emails, and have a Shopify or WooCommerce store connected to your account. Choose 1 of the 7 most recent products added to your store and have an email draft built for you. With the push of a button, we’ll craft an email design that includes product info, customized content, and design styles that match your brand.
