Setting Up Email Notifications of New Orders in WooCommerce
In this section of the guide to setting up an ecommerce website using the WooCommerce WordPress plugin, we’ll show you how to setup email notifications of new orders.
Step 1) New order emails are sent out when a new order is received, and you can set these options by heading to “WooCommerce” from the Dashboard, and then by choosing “Emails” from the Toolbar on the Settings page. The new order settings can be found on the secondary toolbar below the main toolbar.
Step 2) You can enable or disable the New Order email notification by ticking or unticking the box provided.
Step 3) The reciprient is defaulted to the email address used to set up your WordPress account, but you can set other recipients by adding them in the box provided. Separate each email address with a comma.
Step 4) You can create a generic subject for each New Order email by entering it as shown below.
Step 5) Each email notification will be given an Email Heading, and you can change the main heading or leave it as “New customer order” as the default below shows.
Step 6) You can choose to send your emails in different formats, including HTML, Text and Multipart.
Step 7) If you would like to change your email template, you will have to follow the instructions below and copy a .php file into your theme folder. For the most part, people tend to leave the email templates alone, unless they 100% know what they are doing in the editing process.
