Automate Messages by creating Automation on SleekFlow

After you successfully added contacts automatically to SleekFlow. You can always set automation rules on SleekFlow by referring to our guidelines.
SleekFlow uses email or phone number to map to the existing contact. For example, if the phone number on Shopify is the same as an existing number on SleekFlow, the contact will not duplicate but instead will be updated automatically.
For most automation sets with integrations, we recommend you to create a New or Updated Contacts scenario automation. Once the contact is synced onto SleekFlow, you can set automation to immediately send updates and information.

1. Order Confirmation

Let's take sending a confirmation message as an example, "Once the order is paid, the automation will trigger."
Name the automation rule and set the conditions.
Add the customers who have paid the order to a list and send a confirmation message to them.
The customer will receive the confirmation message shown as below.

2. Order Delivery

Let's take sending delivery message as an example, "Once the order is delivered, the automation will trigger."
Name the automation rule and set the conditions.
