You should be sending order confirmations and updates over text.
One of the reasons online shopping is so popular is that it’s fast. You can keep the speed and convenience coming with texts for things like order status, shipping notifications, and even returns.
To give you some inspiration as you plan your order status messages, we’ll give you our favorite templates in this article.
Then you can set up integrations with your favorite e-commerce tools to automate these texts.
No one likes wondering whether their purchase went through. Keep your customers tuned in and up-to-date with a quick order confirmation text.
Of course, communication doesn’t stop after the initial order confirmation message. Let contacts know the status of their order every step of the way until it arrives at their door.
No retailer wants to deal with returned orders, but doing so quickly, efficiently, and with transparency can do worlds of good for your brand reputation.
These text message templates will help you get started texting your customers, but we still recommend keeping a few tips in mind:
Online shoppers value transparency and reliability above all else. Sending your order updates over text can help you prioritize both–not to mention, it’s easy for you.
