WordPress Tutorials, Tips, and Resources to Help Grow Your Business
Do you need an order form that sends multiple notifications for dropshipping? Sending additional notifications from a single form can help save you a lot of time and keep you organized. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to create a simple WordPress order form for dropshipping.
Creating a Simple WordPress Order Form
Once you have installed the WPForms plugin, go to WPForms » Add New to create a new form. Then on the setup screen, click on Billing/Order Form to create a basic order form.
Now WPForms will create a simple order form for you.
Customizing Your Form
Once the form loads up, the left pane shows all the fields you can add to your form. On the right, you can see a preview of the form you are creating.
To add a field to your form, you can simply drag it from the left column onto the form.
You can also select the fields on the preview side of the screen to customize them or to rearrange their order.
Choosing Your Form Settings
Once you are satisfied with your form, you can click the Settings tab on the left. This will take you to the form’s settings.
You can click on General to change the form name and its description.
In the Confirmation section, you can choose what the user sees once they submit the form. For instance, you could show them a message, redirect them to a page on your website, or you can redirect them to a different web address.
In the Notifications section, you can add email addresses you want to receive email notifications whenever a user submits your form.
Sending the Customer a Receipt
Having multiple notifications makes it easy for dropshipping. To add more notifications to the form, simply click on the Add New Notification button.
A popup modal will appear. Here you can name your additional notification, then click Okay. The name is just for your internal reference; it won’t be sent with the notification.
To send this notification to the user who filled out the form, click Show Smart Tags next to the Send To Email Address field. Then click on E-mail.
Now you can scroll down to enter the message you’d like the customer to receive. When you have finished, click Save.
Notifying Your Dropshipping Company
For dropshipping, you’ll need to add a third notification so the company can be automatically notified and complete the customers order without you having to do anything manually.
To add another notification, follow the same steps from the “Sending the Customer a Receipt” section. The only difference would be the name of the notification, the email address that receives the notification, and the message you want the customer to receive.

Adding Form to Site
The first thing you need to do is either create a new blog post in WordPress or edit an existing post where you want to add the order form.
We will be using the WordPress order form shortcode to add the form in a post. Simply click on the Add Form button at the top and select the form you want to add.
An order form shortcode will be added onto your page. Now go ahead and save your page to preview it.
That’s it! You’ve just created a simple WordPress order form for dropshipping.
