How do I create custom fields?

If you are using AfterShip API or CSV upload, you can now add unlimited custom fields to your AfterShip account. With custom fields, you can further personalize the delivery notifications and for reporting purpose. A great example is to add "order description" and "product category" to the shipment.

How it works

  1. Create a new custom field (merge tag) at "Settings > Customize Email", e.g. PRODUCT_DESC
  2. System will automatically create a new merge tag for the custom field, e.g. *|PRODUCT_DESC|*
  3. Insert the merge tag in the notification message
  4. Pass the custom field information through AfterShip API or through CSV Upload
    (For CSV upload, simply add a new column in the CSV example and use the new custom field as the header)
Important Note: Please leave no space or use "_" instead when creating a new custom field
