Confirming an order is an important part of any business-customer relationship. Companies send this transactional email to provide the customers with detailed information about their order. After registering with SendPulse, you can send order confirmation emails automatically without much effort.
Along with other automated messages like welcome emails, thank you emails, or confirmation emails, an order confirmation email is considered to be not just a formality or a tool to inform your customers about the status of their order. It is also a great opportunity to build a rapport with your clients. Personalization is a great technique that can be used to make your order confirmation email look and feel friendlier.
When to Send Your Order Confirmation Email
This email should be issued when a customer places an order on your company’s website. With this email, you confirm that you have accepted a client's order.
Email itself remains one of the most effective tools used by businesses to maintain a healthy and lucrative pattern of communication with their clients and, most importantly, their returning customers. Order confirmation emails are no exception. They can be used both to serve as a tool to provide your customers with vital information concerning their order and to lay the ground for possible future interaction with your brand.
