MailChimp offers two ways to share blog and website content in your campaigns using RSS. RSS-Driven Campaigns can be set up to go out daily, weekly, or monthly, and automatically populate your campaign layout with the last batch of items from your RSS feed.
Bulk pasting has been added to ShopifyFD to help automate the process of adding the same shipping rates to multiple countries. Pretty handy for the stores that area dealing with European countries as there can be a lot of things to add.
