If you bought your domain through Shopify, they have released a new feature that manages your domain's DNS settings from your Shopify Admin account. If you don't have this feature yet, then you can edit your DNS settings by using OpenSRS. 

Check out our article Set up OpenSRS to send emails from your custom Shopify domain for getting started.

We covered generating your Jilt DNS records along with some general guidelines in our article Can I send emails from my own domain? Here we'll take a look at adding the SPF and DKIM records to your custom domain purchased through Shopify.

Now, let's start sending your emails with your own domain.

Log in to your Shopify account

1. Log in to your Shopify store by clicking here

2. From your Shopify Admin, go to Online Store -> Domains


3. In the Shopify-managed domains list, select the domain name from which you'll be sending Jilt emails

4. Click DNS settings

Create a DKIM record

1. On the DNS settings page, use the Add custom record dropdown to select the TXT record type



2. The Add TXT Record modal will appear. In the Name field, Enter the Host/Name we previously generated from Jilt (see Can I send emails from my own domain?) into the Subdomain field (eg. 20171017171308pm._domainkey ).

3.  In the Text Value field, we'll enter the TXT Value we copied from Jilt's Email Domains setup page. Paste the value starting with "k=rsa;" .

4. Click Confirm to save the new record. Great job! We're halfway done :)

Create a SPF record

1. On the DNS settings page, use the Add custom record dropdown to select the TXT record type


2. The Add TXT Record modal will appear. In the Name field, enter @

3.  In the Text Value field, enter the TXT Value generated by Jilt. Paste this value:  v=spf1 include:spf.jiltmta.net ~all .

4. Click Confirm to save the new record. That's it, nice work on creating your DNS records!

If your Shopify account already has an SPF record

In some instances, you might already have an SPF record in your Records list. It's not recommended to have multiple records -- this can lead to delivery and spam issues. Instead, we can adjust the entry to include a portion of Jilt's TXT Value

Add the following to your existing SPF record and move the ~all to the end: include:spf.jiltmta.net 

Your final SPF record might look something like this:
 v=spf1 a mx include:_spf.google.com include:spf.jiltmta.net ~all 

Next Steps

Once the DNS has had a chance to propagate (sometimes up to 48 hours), return to Jilt's Email Domain page to complete verification.
