Tag orders based on the shipping address phone number

If you'd like to tag orders based on whether the phone number provided as part of the shipping details either exists or, contains a particular string of numbers, then our Shipping address phone number criteria can do just that.

Please note:

We also have a similar criteria for the Billing address phone number.

The shipping address phone number and billing address phone number are also available as Dynamic Tagging options within the workflow builder, allowing you to add the shipping and billing address phone numbers as tags to the order automatically.

How to use the criteria

To create a workflow using this criteria, click on the Create New Workflow button from the main Workflows view:

Saving and naming your workflow

It's worth giving your workflow a name to help you identify it at a later date, so add a workflow name in the New Workflow section, check the summary of your workflow and if happy, either Test your Workflow against an existing order or hit Save Workflow:

Dynamic Tags

The shipping phone number can automatically be applied as a tag to the order using our Dynamic Tags option:

We would recommend using a Prefix (e.g. Shipping No:) to identify what the tag relates to.
