In order to assist you with editing notification emails, this table describes the purpose and the trigger of each notification email. It also contains the keys that should be included. If you would like to return the article back to its original state, visit: Notification email templates.
Keys are placeholder text that you can use to send custom information to your customers. For example, if you want to address customers by their first name in each email, you could add [[firstname]] at the beginning of the notification email template. This way when the email is sent, the system will replace [[firstname]] with the customer's first name, based on the information in the eCom Back Office > Customers.
