Users can select “Subscribe to Announcements” option in the registration page at the time of registration to receive any announcement email or newsletter from your store.

Sending Announcement Emails
You can send announcement emails by using the “Email Trigger” feature.
- Go to “Marketing” --> “Email Triggers” in your CMS
- Select the option “Announcement” from the drop-down list. (See Below Screenshot)
- Customize the Subject and Content of the email
- After composing the email click on “Send” to send the email to all your users
The email announcement will be received by the users who have already select the option “Subscribe to Announcements” at the time of registration.
Note: Unlike Email Triggers, it will not automatically send notifications to the users on the event of an action. You can only send one announcement email in a week from your CMS (e:g If a you sent an announcement on Thursday (9th August 2018), you can send a new announcement next Monday (13th August 2018) and then again on Monday (20th August 2018). If you wish to send more than one announcement emails per week, you need to add a support ticket.
Viewing Email Addresses of Newsletter Subscribers
You can view the email addresses of the users who have opted in for “Subscribe to Announcements” option. You can collect the email addresses and send the users emails using any third-party email service or you can remove the email address of a user.
- Go to “User Features” -->”Newsletter” in your CMS
- You will view the list of newsletter subscribers (See Below Screenshot)
- To export the email addresses, click on “Export to Excel”. All the email addresses will be saved in Microsoft Excel in your computer
- To remove any newsletter subscriber, click on the “Remove” button under “Action”. The user will be removed from newsletter list and will not receive any announcement/newsletter emails from you
When users don’t want to receive any email announcements/newsletters from your store, they can opt-out this option.
When a user selects the opt-out option, he/she will not receive any email from you for a certain period. (For example, 1 week, 1 month etc.) as the CMS will not allow you to send announcement emails to that specific user for a certain period.
The users will receive an email with opt-out option when you send any announcement email. (See Below Screenshot)
