Once the order is shipped by the supplier and fulfilled in Oberlo, the shipping confirmation email with a tracking code can be automatically sent to your customers. The screenshot below shows how this email looks like.
Emails are sent from your Shopify store, therefore, your customers will not know that you are using the Oberlo app.
Three Steps to Follow
1. Enable the notification setting in the Oberlo app. Go to Settings > Store Settings.
2. Add the package tracking website URL. On the same settings page, add http://www.17track.net/?nums= or any other package tracking website URL. By doing this, your customers will be able to click on the tracking code in the notification email and will automatically be directed to the specific website and see the status of their shipment.
If you leave this setting empty, your customers will need to manually copy the tracking in the notification email, go to any package tracking website and paste the tracking code to see the shipment status.
3. Change the Shopify's email notification template as the default version does not have the tracking URL added. Go to Settings > Notifications > Shipping Confirmation template, remove all code and replace it with the one that is attached below.
You can find the shipping confirmation template code HERE.
That's it! From now on, when your order is fulfilled with Oberlo, your customers will receive a notification letter, that their order has been shipped and tracking information.
To see how your shipping confirmation email looks like, click "Preview".
You can resend the shipping confirmation email from the Orders page by clicking the “Resend email” button.
Sending Emails to Customers Manually
However, as for the orders you received before, you will have to send messages about the orders shipped to your customers manually. You can do this directly on Oberlo > Orders page by clicking the envelope icon next to every order.
