Send a Shipment Confirmation Email | How To

Buyers love to know when their package is on its way! ShippingEasy offers automatic shipment notification emails to send customers their shipment and tracking details after a label has been purchased for their order. You can customize these emails with specific messaging tailored to your stores.

For drop-shipped orders, ShippingEasy will automatically send emails when the orders are downloaded but not when shipped or delivered. Your customers can only receive an email if they have provided an email address with their order.


ShippingEasy is unable to send notification emails for orders from the following stores:

  • Amazon

  • Jane

  • Reverb

  • Wish

For Amazon, shipment confirmation emails are sent automatically from Amazon once an order has been updated as shipped. However, ShippingEasy allows Amazon merchants to send automated campaigns to customers, boosting your reputation and increasing sales.

To configure your account to send shipment confirmation emails to your customers:

  1. This will bring up a screen that displays all of the stores you have connected to ShippingEasy.

  2. Click Edit store settings for the store that you would like to set up email confirmations.

    Edit store settings option highlighted under the Stores & Orders settings
  3. Go to the Notifications tab, then check the box next to Shipment Confirmation Email under Shipment Tracking Email Settings.

When Are Shipment Confirmation Emails Sent?

The timing of the shipment confirmation emails depends on whether or not you have post-dated the labels.

When labels are purchased on the Ship Date:

The shipment confirmation email is sent as soon as a label gets printed.

Click Buy Label in the Order Details slide out,

or select the green Print button on the READY TO PRINT page.

Print button under Purchased Labels

When labels are post-dated with a future Ship Date:

The shipment confirmation email will be sent on the shipment date. The hour & minute are determined by the hour & minute of the day you printed your label.

For example, if you print a label on Monday at 5:02 pm and post-date it to ship on Tuesday, we will send the confirmation on Tuesday at 5:02 pm.
