Shipmondo's order management makes it possible for you to automatically send a personalized notification to your customer in the form of an e-mail and/or an SMS message.

This way you can create your own message that is dynamic in the way that e.g. receiver name and tracking number are automatically merged into it, without you having to do any work.
