As we come up to some of the busiest shopping days of the year here are some ways to ensure your local deliveries go smoothly with EasyRoutes for Shopify.

1️⃣ Set Up Delivery Notifications

73.6% of shoppers state that clear communication is key to a good delivery experience. 93% of customers want to be updated about changes in delivery status.

Keep your customers informed and up-to-date with timely delivery notifications. Send email and SMS notifications for the delivery events you choose. You can even notify customers when your driver is a certain number of stops away.

How? Go to the Notifications tab in your EasyRoutes Settings.

2️⃣ Customize Your Order Tracking Page

Add your logo, change the background colour and customize any of the text to make an order tracking page that matches your store. No coding required! Our order tracking pages offer up-to-the minute delivery information to keep your customers informed.

How? Go to Order tracking tab in your EasyRoutes Settings.

3️⃣ Collect Proof of Delivery

83.5% of customers are unlikely to return after a negative delivery experience

Give and get peace of mind by collecting proof of delivery. With an EasyRoutes Premium plan your drivers can take multiple photos, capture an e-signature, and add an optional delivery note. Share these with your customers on your customized order tracking page.

Pro tip: You can make collecting proof of delivery mandatory for drivers in the General tab of your EasyRoutes Settings.
