An SPF record is a type of Domain Name System (DNS) record that identifies which mail servers are authorized to send email on behalf of your domain. SPF records help to prevent email spoofing and improve email deliverability.

How to Configure SPF for Shopify

  • Sign in to your DNS administration interface.
  • Select DNS Template under Tools & Settings
  • You must change the DNS TXT record for SPF.
  • For Shopify, an SPF TXT record will have the following syntax:

yourdomain.com TXT v=spf1 include:shops.shopify.com -all

  • This record should be published in the DNS records section for the relevant domain.

Worth noting: To activate SPF for outgoing emails using Shopify if your domain previously lacked an SPF record, all you need to do is publish the aforementioned record. If your DNS already contains an SPF record, you must update it to include Shopify as shown below:

Previous SPF record:  v=spf1 include:spf.zoho.com -all

Modified SPF record:  v=spf1 include:spf.zoho.com include:shops.shopify.com -all

  • Save modifications.
