How to: Send a Delivery Confirmation email when a package is delivered

Created:   |   Updated:

With a Delivery Confirmation email, you can automatically notify your buyers that their order has been delivered. You can even receive a copy of the Delivery Confirmation email to your business. For drop shipped orders, ShippingEasy can trigger automated emails for orders downloaded but not delivered or shipped.

Once enabled, the Delivery Confirmation email is sent when ShippingEasy receives notice that a package has been delivered. A package is considered delivered when the carrier scans the package as 'Delivered'. 

NOTE: Delivery Confirmation emails are only supported for USPS, Fedex, and UPS shipments. 

For other shipments, consider signing up for alerts directly with the carrier. Many carriers allow you to sign up for delivery status alerts directly on their tracking page.

ShippingEasy provides a default Delivery Confirmation email. This allows you to start using this feature right away. See what the default template looks like.

For businesses that prefer to customize the Delivery Confirmation email, there is an option to create your own Email Template. This custom Email Template can then be assigned to your STORES & ORDERS settings. It's a great option if you want to highlight your brand. Especially if you have multiple stores and want a unique email for each. Learn how to create a custom Email Template.

Once you've decided which template to use, you're ready to configure your stores to send the Delivery Confirmation email.

To set up Delivery Confirmation emails for USPS, Fedex, and UPS shipments:

  1. From the top left corner, click on the SETTINGS icon and then go to STORE & ORDERS under the INTEGRATION section.
  2. On the STORES & ORDERS page, locate the store for which you want to send Delivery Confirmation emails to your customers. Under the store details, click Edit store settings.


  3. Under the "Notifications" tab, check the box next to Send a delivery confirmation email to buyer with delivery details.
    NOTE: stores will not see this option as automatically sends shipment confirmation emails to your customer once their order has been shipped.

  4. If you have a custom Email Template, expand the Select Delivery Confirmation Email Template menu to choose your template. Otherwise, leave this set to the default template. Learn more about custom Email Templates.


  5. If you would like to receive a copy of the Delivery Confirmation emails as well, scroll to the "Email Reply-to and BCC settings" section and enter your email address into the Send Copy of Delivery Emails to field.

  6. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and Save the changes.

  7. If you have additional stores to configure, repeat these steps for each store.
