How it works
Once the ParcelPanel integration is enabled, the following custom event will be created in your Omnisend account:
To send email and SMS shipment updates, you'll need to create a new workflow:
Click the 'Create custom workflow' button:
Select 'ParcelPanel Custom Event' trigger and configure trigger filters by your needs. ParcelPanel Event is triggered by different shipment_status for each shipment. So, you can create a separate workflow for each shipment_status.
Here's a list of the default Shipment Statuses that ParcelPanel sends to Omnisend:
The carrier received a shipping request and is about to pick up the shipment
The shipment is on the way
Out for Delivery
The shipment has arrived at the local point and is out for delivery
The shipment has been delivered
The shipment might have been sent back to the sender, damaged, or lost
The carrier attempted to deliver the shipment but failded
There is no tracking info updated for 30 days for express service or 60 days for postal service
Note! The Shipment Status text you fill in the trigger filter field must be the same as the Tracking page translations from ParcelPanel admin. Here's an example of 'In Transit' shipment status being translated to Spanish.
That's exactly how you should enter it in the trigger filter settings:
Here's a list of properties that ParcelPanel passed to Omnisend. You can use them to customize the content of your messages:

Here's a simple example workflow to send an SMS and email update to customers when their order is Out for Delivery.
Make sure to enable 'Pass non-opted-in contact to the next workflow step' for any message block you'll add to your workflow. So, if the customer won't provide a phone number while placing the order, we'll still be able to send an email update and vice versa.
