Sending Shipping Notifications

Ship notifications are sent to buyers once an order is shipped.  It includes, when, how and what was shipped along with tracking numbers.  If the eCommerce site sends out ship notifications for you, you may not need this functionality.  In that case, you can hide the Ship Notification button from the interface by following the instructions in Customizing Shipping Notifications.


You may also want to customize the text of your ship notification to make it more personal.  Customizing Shipping Notifications also explains how to edit the Ship Notification Email Template.


If you would like to send out ship notifications, you may send them manually or automatically.  Shipping notifications can be sent out automatically whenever a shipment is shipped.  See Customizing Shipping Notifications for information on setting up automatic ship notifications.
