Email Configuration


WebShopApps DropShip offers the ability to automatically email each warehouse within a order the order details pertinent to that warehouse.

This article will walk you through the steps required to configure this functionality within the DropShip extension.

Setting up a new transactional template

  1. Navigate to System->Transactional Email Templates within your Magento admin panel.
  2. Click “Add New Template”
  3. Choose from the “Template” drop down menu “New Warehouse Shipment” and click “Load Template”.
  4. Enter a meaningful name for the template in “Template Name”. I would use something like “Dropship New Warehouse Shipment”.
  5. Click “Save Template”. We don’t recommend editing the template until you have the email functionality working.

Configuring DropShip to use the new transactional template

  1. Navigate to System->Configuration->Sales Emails->Dropship Warehouse Order.
  2. Change this section to be enabled.
  3. Change the drop down menu “New Order Confirmation Template” to the template you’ve just created.
  4. Change the “New Order Confirmation Email Sender” to the email address you’d like the email for the warehouses to be sent from.
  5. Click “Save”.

Configuring when to send the email

  1. Navigate to System->Configuration->Shipping Methods->WebShopApps DropShip.
  2. Find the option “Create Shipment Email”.

This value can be set to one of three values:

Never: The email functionality is disabled.

On Place Order: As soon as a new order is created each warehouse in the order is sent a email with the order details relevant to that warehouse.

On Create Invoice: As soon as a invoice is raised on the order each warehouse in the order is sent a email with the order details relevant to that warehouse.

Individual warehouse configuration

You can create exceptions for the email logic for specific warehouses. If there’s a few warehouses you’d rather not send the order to via email or you’d rather email them manually you can configure this under the warehouse. You’ll find a setting called “Send Packing Slips to Warehouses Manually” on the warehouse configuration area under dropship->manage warehouses. Set this to “Yes” and that warehouse will not be automatically emailed. You will need to click the “Send Email” button on the new order area.
