[Updates] Disable Sending Emails for an Order

If there is an order that, for whatever reason, you don’t want to send emails to, you can now go to that order and click a button that will disable the sending.

If you change your mind you can re-enable it.

Note, all the rules for sending still apply, so, if you disable it and the time to send out an email passes we will NOT go back and send missed (by time) emails, but will send new emails as the schedule dictates.


[Updates] Product Nickname

There’s a new field in the email templates: product nick name.

You can assign a product (or as we call them, item) a nick name by going to the details page on any item (eg Underneath the thumbnail of the item will be a new field called ‘nickname’. If you click on the underlined part a little popup will appear where you can type in the name.

See the screen shots below for more.

Better Support for international characters

We’ve addressed an issue that in some circumstances was stripping international (accented) characters from the email body.

Eg é would disappear.

If you see this showing up again, please let us know!


New Trigger: Returned

You can now send an email out to customers using the trigger of ‘returned’.

When an order is marked as returned all future emails yet to be sent are deleted for that order, but, you can add a special email if you wish to follow up with these customers.


Updates to Royal Mail tracking

Recently we’ve seen some issues with tracking packages sent in the UK via Royal Mail. We’re trying to address these in a new update.

Also, if a package has an ‘estimated’ (by Amazon) delivery date and the carrier is not giving us any information then we will set the package to delivered within a set window of time. That should enable emails to get sent out when they otherwise may have been missed.


DHL SmartMail support added

We’ve added tracking info support for DHL SmartMail. Not too many orders are shipped via this method, but, from now they will have the full benefit of knowing exact shipment progress and delivery times!
