30 Amazing eCommerce Email Templates (from 6 industries)

An average shopper gets at least 100 emails every day. Oof! 

What’s worse: most emails look similar, and have similar copies (get X% off; offer ends in X hours; yada yada)—they fail to inspire—they don’t evoke emotions. 

Result: no sales. 

So, it's not great when your email gets lost amidst the debris.

But why does it happen? 

Marketing/content teams that solve the same problem every day often find it hard to come up with new stuff—creativity does not strike when it’s routine. 

And this is why we’ve created this post: some amazing tried-and-tested emails that will (hopefully) drive inspiration for you.

We’ve covered emails at every step of the sales funnel:

  • Welcome emails    
  • Retargeting emails
  • Cart abandonment emails
  • Post-purchase emails 
  • Loyalty/Rewards emails

Let’s dive in.
