Attentive is an all-in-one text message marketing solution for growing eCommerce brands. It empowers online retailers to send highly personalized and relevant text messages at every stage of the buyer’s journey. Attentive’s powerful integration with AfterShip will allow merchants to track their shipments across 800+ couriers like UPS, USPS, FedEx, DHL, TNT, and China Post, trace their movement towards the customers, and automate the delivery progress communication after customers opt-in to receive delivery notifications from the order tracking page.
For the 4 key delivery statuses, AfterShip transports the tracking events to Attentive via webhooks to trigger automated SMS messages to keep customers in the loop of their order status. A phone number must be present in AfterShip to match in Attentive platforms to send SMS messages. Further, enhancing engagement, the two-way transactional messages give customers the freedom to respond to the delivery notifications fostering better post-purchase conversions.
