Customizing Email Templates with Quick Shopping Cart
You can customize the automated — or template — notifications that Quick Shopping Cart® sends to the people who interact with your online store. For instance, your customers get emails when their orders ship or if their purchases refund. Your warehouses get emails when they need to ship orders.
Using template messages, you can enter custom text for the message subject line and the introductory and closing text. Customizing template messages is one way to create an identity for your online store.
For more information about working with notifications, see Managing Email Notifications with Quick Shopping Cart.
