WooCommere Shipment Tracking plugin integration

Add support for WooCommere Shipment Tracking plugin integration.

There’s a huge demand for a tool that sends SMS notifications to customers with order tracking information. Using Shipstation WooCommere plugin and the Shipment Tracking plugin (which sends the tracking info back to woocommerce), AutomateWoo (with Twilio) could be used to send those SMS notifications.

    Doug Aitken: Good point, I think it would be good to add as a new idea so we can gauge demand.

  2. Doug Aitken says:

    Dan Bitzer Can I add an enhancement for multiple tracking IDs? Currently onto the latest will be used with the variables.

  3. Dan Bitzer says:

    Miguel Gomes: In that case, you could use the {{ order.meta }} variable instead of {{ }}. The difference is you AutomateWoo won’t format the phone number and add the country code but Twilio might do that for you anyway.

    Basically, you’d want to use {{ order.meta | key: ‘_mobile_number_shipping’ }}

    You can also use the ‘Order – Custom Field’ rule to check if the field has been filled in.

    Alternatively, you could create a custom variable that extends the {{ }} variable. Here are the docs on custom variables:

    If you need assistance with customization I’d recommend reaching out to someone on the WooCommerce customizations page:

    Dan Bitzer: Hi Dan, that would be a good option however we are seeing a new problem… often times customers are entering a land-line number, not a mobile number. So we thought it would be better if we had a field specifically asking customers to enter a mobile number if they wish to receive shipping tracking info. Here’s what the code would look like:

    I just don’t know how to do a custom variable that we could use instead of {{ }}.

    Is that something you could help with?

  5. Dan Bitzer says:

    Miguel Gomes: At the moment, we don’t have any checkout SMS opt-in but we are planning to expand the opt-in features and include options like this.

    An alternative solution might be to add a custom checkout field that saves to order meta. Then use AutomateWoo’s rules to filter by that order meta before sending the tracking SMS.

  6. Miguel Gomes says:

    Dan Bitzer: Wow – I didn’t realize you already had the integration built-in. This is amazing! Thank you! Just a quick question if I may, Shouldn’t there be a checkbox at checkout for customers to select if they want to receive SMS notifications?

  7. Dan Bitzer says:

    Miguel Gomes We do have an integration for WooCommerce Shipment Tracking. I think the use case you described should be possible already. Let me know if you need any help setting that up!
