2. Setting up order status notifications
What are automated notifications?
Automated notifications allow you to design and set up emails that go out to your customers automatically when their shipments progress to selected shipping events. LateShipment.com’s Delivery Experience Management allows you to set up automated notifications for the events Shipped, Attempted Delivery, Delivered, etc. So, say you enable Automated Notifications for the event Shipped, an email (that you have customized) would go out to customers from your verified email ID when their packages are shipped.
NOTE: To use this feature you would need to connect your eCommerce store to your LateShipment.com account.
How can I set up automated notifications?
- Click on Settings > DEM > Integrations > Email Notifications
- Select the event(s) that you want to automate notifications for > From the drop-down, pick a relevant template for the event(s).
- Click on Enable. This would activate the automated emails for the events that you have picked.
NOTE: Pre-requisites before you can set up automated notifications:
1. Connect your eCommerce store/Order Management System
2.. Have a verified sender email ID.
3. Configure order tracking page
Log in to your account > Settings > Customize Tracking Page
Pick a theme (Standard/Timeline/Pristine)
