Automated Features
Use the checkboxes to enable the following touchSMS features for Maropost:

Order Status Changes
Automatically send personalised order status notifications to customers by SMS. Choose which order status triggers an SMS notification and customise the content of each message template.

TIPS: If your sales process includes orders being placed back to previous statuses, ie. from NEW to ON HOLD then back to NEW, check the box to “Block multiple messages for the same status“. This will prevent the order status message for NEW orders, from being sent twice.

Prevent Dispatched order status messages from submission to those customers whose orders are not shipped, by checking the box “Don’t send Dispatch notifications for orders that were picked up

Active Channels
Use the checkboxes to choose which of your sales channels are enabled for automatic SMS notifications.

NOTE: Specific filters can be enabled for wholesale and retail customers. Contact our support team at support@touchsms.com.au for details.

Verified Mobile Number – Replies to Your Mobile
You can send SMS from touchSMS using your registered verified mobile number. Replies to these messages will be delivered to your mobile – not received in your touchSMS account.

Each order status is pre-populated with a default SMS template. Edit your template to include customer and order information or links to your store. Each character is counted to ensure you know exactly how many message parts you are sending.

Merge Fields
Use the provided merge fields to add specific customer and order information to your message. Simply click on a merge field button to add it to the message. Keep an eye on your message length when adding merge fields – when the information is populated, this could increase the length of the message sent.
