Using "If This Then That" - Interesting?


Recommended Posts

So just in case this does help anyone, I totally copied and pasted this right from the Fiverr Help page, I’m not claiming credit. If everyone hates it, blame Fiverr. 😉 Anyway, I stumbled across this while reading up on other things and I had never heard of it. It looks kind of cool to me. In case anyone else was interested I thought I’d steal it and share. I’m going to give it a try when I have time. Ok, that’s it, happy sales!

IFTTT is a free service that lets you automate tasks between Fiverr and many of your other favorite services, such as Facebook and Twitter. Buyers and sellers can use this service to help simplify your business and personal life – such as receiving a text message when an order is complete, or automatically tweeting when you receive a thumbs-up on a Gig®. All this can be done by creating a recipe.

To create a recipe:

Once logged in, click Create Recipe.

To define the trigger, click the word this.

Select a trigger channel. For example, select Fiverr or enter Fiverr in the search.

From the list, select a trigger. For example, selecting New order received fires every time a buyer orders one of your gigs.

Click Create Trigger.

Note: There may be some additional fields to fill out based on your selection before you create your trigger.

To define the action, click the word that.

Select an action channel. For example, select SMS or enter SMS in the search to receive an SMS whenever someone orders your Gig.

Click Send me an SMS.

In the message box, complete the action. When clicking inside the box, you will have fields (known as ingredients) that automatically exist, such as {{BuyerUserName}}, which will display the buyer’s name in your SMS message. Fields not marked with {{text}}, are texts that you can customize.

Click the ingredients icon to add fields, such as DeliveryTime, GigTitle, etc.

Click Create Action.

Verify your details and click Create Recipe.

Note: For first time setup, you will need to add your mobile phone number to receive an SMS message.

Thanks for posting this, I’ve been looking at setting this up to receive SMS’s when someone places and order but can’t figure it out. Have you made it work? I can’t find the ‘create a recipe’ button. Thanks in advance for your help.
