Guide for Admin Notifications for Shopify

Admin Notifications is a Shopify app that automatically sends email notifications when various events happen in your store, allowing you to take timely action.

After installing Admin Notifications, you'll land to the Home page. Here, you can find a description of How app works, the Email support form, and the Changelog to track the latest updates of the app. Below, you can also find other apps developed by Amasty.
