The beginning of this article walks through the step-by-step process required for a full-service Listrak-led integration. If you are a self-service client, be sure to follow this link to access the Transactional Messages self-service materials.
Transactional messages, including order confirmation and shipping confirmation messages, are designed to further engage your audience. These messages are triggered by making requests to the Listrak REST API. Below is a brief explanation for a Listrak-led Transactional implementation.
REVIEW API CALL METHODS
Review API call method and setup instructions.
Review API Transactional Message Call
Examples of making the calls in different programming languages are provided in the documentation.
PROVIDE LIST OF DATA FIELDS
Provide Listrak a list of all the necessary data fields that will be used in transactional messages. You can forward an example of an email that is currently being sent for your transactional messages to get the process started.
Example of standard fields in order and shipping confirmation messages:
- NOTE: The Item(s) Details column can be passed as an iterated table of all the order and shipping contents rather than individual fields for each item and its attributes.
LISTRAK PROVIDES API IDS
We will provide you with all of message IDs and AttributeIDs for all the data points in the message.
LISTRAK SETS UP THE MESSAGES
Working closely with your design team, Listrak will set up the emails so when the API call is made, a customer will receive the transactional message.
TESTING YOUR MESSAGES
You can test your messages with test data at any point after the messages are set up. Please note that these are configured with a live API connection. Any live customer data sent through this connect will be sent to customers. To avoid sending live messages, please let your Project Manager know when you are ready to test.
LAUNCHING YOUR TRANSACTIONAL CAMPAIGN
Please coordinate with your Project Manager when you're ready to begin sending Transactional Messages with live customer data.
