Send transactional messages

Transactional messages are being sent automatically upon your web site or application request (for example: order confirmation, due payment reminder etc.). Sending is requested through FEEDGEE API.

To create a transactional campaign you need:

  1. In your Mail lists create new list dedicated to your transactional campaign. Let it be 'Order confirmation email' transactional campaign. To this list right after client has checked out your site will add client's email to send to him or her order confirmation (transactional message). Right after transactional campaign is sent client's email will be unsubscribed this mail list automaticsly, so please remember to separate your lists for transactional and regular email campaigns.
  2. In the Create/Send hit 'create campaign' and in the editor:
    a. Choose the mail list you created for 'Order confirmation email' transactional campaign.
    b. Add html or create a message based on a template, add personalization magic (it also works well for transactional messages), subject, select other settings you need.
    d. Remember to make On «Transactional Email» link (blue link in settings above editor).

after it you can check how message appears in Inbox sending test from Schedule page and when it's done save campaign as Draft.

To send transactional messages you need to use API methods:

  1. Create an API key in the section «Account Details» -> API keys. You will need it for your requests to API
  2. Add to created mail list recepient or recepients of your transactional message
    Method API listSubscribeOptInNow
  3. Request sending transactional campaign
    Method API campaignEmailSendNow

Transactional campaign launch is possible only by API requests.

Campaign will be sent only to recepients who were added to the list after previous campaign launch. After transactional campaign launch it will appear in Analytics and can be reused again and again to send messages to new recepients by API requests. All campaign results will be collected in Analytics or can be requested through API.
