Automated order/Freight confirmations
To set up automated shipping and order confirmations, it is most commonly done using API or a integration. This means that information from a completed purchase is sent from your ERP system to Rule and automatically the information (e.g. product, price, number of m.m.) is entered into your template that automatically fills and creates the order confirmation that is sent out. Talk to your ecommerce partner to clarify which customer data to submit to Rule. Then you can easily create the order and delivery confirmations to be sent out.
To create the automations:
Step 1 - Go into automations and click On New Automation:
Step 2 - Name the automation and add the tag to trigger it on:
Step 3 - Add email or sms, if you choose email and you need to have your own template or use a standard template, the most important thing here is to make sure that the custom fields in the mailing is right for your e-commerce platform. Here you can, for example, choose a standard template for both order confirmation and delivery confirmation, these are specifically adapted for centers, but the membership field can be changed to those that your e-commerce platform uses.
Step 4 - When your email is ready and everything is set up, you need to click active on both the email and in the automation for it to be activated.
Below is an example of an order and delivery confirmation before the data from the purchase has been downloaded and filled in. You choose to supplement with graphics, logotype, links etc to make the order confirmation as appealing and informative as possible. Contact your system vendor/e-commerce platform to describe the details from the purchase that you want to include in the confirmations and also share the API-key.
-An API key generates during Settings. See the picture below and the link to our API documentation can be found on the page https://www.rule.se/apidoc/#overview.
You also have the opportunity to name different keys that you created and of course create new and remove old ones.
If you have questions about the API or want to connect technologies with your e-commerce partner with developers with us at Rule, please describe your case to us via email@example.com and we will assist you.
