(Templates for Customers)

1. Order Create: When a new order is received on your store, the customer will receive a message automatically with details of the order.

2. Order fulfill: When the order is fulfilled, the customer receives an automated message giving him the shipping details like the Tracking number and the courier through which the order is being fulfilled.

3. Order delivered: When the order is delivered, the customer receives an automated message telling him that the order has been delivered via the respective courier service and tracking number.

(Templates for Vendors)

4. Order create: When a new order is received from the merchant, the vendor receives a Whatsapp message with the details of the order including the order date and time, the product quantities and reminding him to the deliver the product at the earliest.

5. Product Approve: When a Vendor adds a product, it goes to the Merchant for approval before it is live on the store. This message confirms the approval of the message whenever it is done.
