About Mechanic

Mechanic is designed to benefit everybody: merchants, customers, developers, agencies, Gurus, everybody.

That's why we make automation easy without code, why we make the underlying code easy to tweak, and why we're constantly sharing every automation task we make. We believe in creating the best world we can, and this is a part of it. :)

What is Mechanic?

For merchants, it's a way to solve problems without the headache of complex configuration. Use or a request a task, receive a simple form that has only the options you need to change, and let it run. Never worry about usage charges.

For anyone who knows a little code, it's the infinite flexibility of Liquid scripting, without the headache of having to host your own app. This makes Mechanic an app platform of its own, for Shopify.

I'm really happy with this app so far. I am using it to do a bunch of different tasks. E.g. email customers about outstanding order payments. Send them email when an order is taking too long and so forth.

It's not saving me any money yet on my other apps as it doesn't quite do what they do. But hopefully it will in the future.

This app literally saved my business! Not only are the available functions currently available worth the cost alone, the fact you can build your own makes this worth every penny!

Also, Issac @ Lightward helped me tremendously by building the function I needed to add a limit on the amount of total orders received per calendar day. He openly worked with me to gather the requirements and make tweaks as needed, which I could not have done without his help! Plus...this function was added so that any users of Mechanic now has access to this feature as well!
