For templates to be available to edit, you must enable them in Advanced Settings. Any new custom templates need to be added in your Client Extension before showing in the editor.

  1. Click the Template dropdown to select your enabled templates for different email events (Customer Welcome or Order Receipt).

    The Select Image pop-up window opens.

Using Email Variables

Email variables are expressions that allow you to insert user data dynamically. Many of these variables are client-specific for all email types—​contact Customer Care for a list of your client-specific email variables.

For example:

Hello {{Distributor.Name}},

It looks like there was an issue…​

Any client can use the default email variables.

  • We've found through trial and error that Email Images must NOT have a "space" in the name. For example, my background.png will not work correctly and the image should instead be saved as mybackground.png or my_background.png before inserting the photo into the template.
