If you are using the Zen Cart software for your website, you have the option of sending all of your customers an email. You also have the option of sending new subscribers email. If you want to announce an upcoming sale, or something like that, you can send an email to all of your customers. If you would like to welcome you new comers, you can send them an email too. You can also email other administrators on your Zen Cart site. This guide will show you how to email your customers in Zen Cart.
To get started with this Zen Cart guide, you will first need to login to your site. Once you are logged in, click the Admin Home link at the top of your page. Now you will see the admin tools at the top of your page. Find the Tool menu and place your mouse on it. Once your mouse is placed on it, you will see the items in that menu open in a box. Look for the Send Email link and click it. The page will then reload and this is where you will create and send your email from your Zen Cart site. I will walk you through the steps of creating this email.
Selecting Your Email Recipient – Your first step is to select who you want to send the email to. In the top box, you will need to click the box to open it. This is where you will select who you want to send the email to. You will see your long list of options in this box. Simply click the one you want to go with.
From – The from field will probably already be filled in with the email address you use for the website. If this is the email you want to use, you can move on to the next step. If you prefer to use another email address, you can delete the one that is in there and type your own in the box.
Subject – Well, you probably already know what goes in this box. This is what your email is about.
Message – In the last box is where you type your message. This is a basic text message by default. If you want to use HTML instead, you will need to go to your message options and change the email preferences to HTML. Type your email in this box and send your email when you are finished. Click the Preview button and then click the Send button if every thing is ok.
