WebSite X5 Evo and Pro


When a customer completes an order, it is important that he receives confirmation of his order, so he can check that he has given all the correct information and consult the details on how to make the payment.


It is also important that the customer is told when his order is actually dispatched and that it contains the information necessary for receiving the purchased products.


WebSite X5 automatically writes both the order confirmation e-mail and the order dispatch notification e-mail, for both physical and digital products, taking necessary details from the order itself.


An order confirmation e-mail is made up as follows:


Introductory text
Description:
This is the text at the beginning of the e-mail. It should thank the customer for his order and summarize the contents that follow.
Example:
Dear Customer,
