5. Automate Message based on Zap Trigger 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 existing contact. For example, if the phone number on Shopify is the same as an existing number on SleekFlow, that contact detail will get updated automatically.
For most automation set with integrations through Zapier, we recommend you to the New or Updated Contacts scenario. Once the contact is synced onto SleekFlow, you can set automation to immediately send updates and information.
Let's take sending 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.
