How to add Shopify SPF Records to my email?

If you have an E-Commerce store on the Shopify platform then your store sends many emails and notifications on your behalf. Everything from order confirmations, tracking emails, shipping updates, and many more. If you want your Shopify store to send emails using your own domain name and professional email address as the "From" when system notifications are sending emails to your customers, then you need to add a simple DNS record (to where your domain name was purchased).

If you want to test your email address, then send a message from your account to check-auth@verifier.port25.com and you'll receive a summary of your email host's authentication methods. If you see SPF check: pass in the Summary of results, then your address meets Shopify's security settings.

Adding Shopify SPF Record

  1. Log in to your domain hosting account.
  2. Find your domain's TXT record.
  3. Add the following SPF record to your TXT record: v=spf1 include:shops.shopify.com ~all
  4. If you already have an SPF record in place, then you can add include:shops.shopify.com next to the other "Include" record. Example: include:v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com include:shops.shopify.com ~all
  5. Save the changes you made to the text record.
