Consignor SMS Notification is a service where Consignor sends an SMS to the receiver on the shipments when transmitting to the carrier. (Or any other given time)
This service is invoiced differently by the country where you have your subscription. Contact Consignor Customer Service to learn more.
You can build up the SMS yourself, using the available parameters. The text is limited to 250 characters.
To activate the SMS Notification go to setup in Consignor. Choose the level where you want to activate the feature and right-click in the pane to the right. Select New >SMS Notification Setup from the list.
This window will appear:
We recommend that you check the box Disable SMS notifications on return products. You can also choose if the template you are going to create is for all countries or you can specify on your own local language in the drop down list. Click the Edit button to edit the message and add tracking number.
In the Message Editor list you can find Shipment - Number. This is the tracking number you would want to send to the customer if the carrier supports track and trace. To add an item to the message, select it on the list drag it up to the field above message preview.
Here is an example of what you can add to the message:
Your order: @@fld_RefOrderNumber@@ is now being shipped from us and you can track the shipment on the URL: @@fld_PackageTrackingUrl@@ - Consignor
@@fld_RefOrderNumber@@ is the order number registered in Consignor. You can either type this or find it under Reference - Ordernumber.
@@fld_PackageTrackingUrl@@ is the tracking link to the carrier. Type it or find it under Reference - Tracking URL.
Once SMS Notification has been activated in your Consignor, you will be able to choose a service called Consignor SMS Notification on your shipments.
