You and your customers can receive email notifications about new orders, payment status updates and other useful information.

- Enable/Disable the notifications of certain types
- Change the “From:” email address for customers’ notifications
- Upload your logo to be displayed in the notifications

How to edit notifications
You can edit the layout and content of email notifications using an HTML template. There is a lot of data (e.g. order total, customer’s name, etc.) that can be added to the template with help of special variables.
Can I use multiple email addresses for order notifications?
Yes, the store admin can receive order notifications to more than one email addresses. You can set it up in your control panel, Settings > Mail > Mail settings. Click 'Change' button and add the addresses into "Send notifications to" field. You should submit email addresses separated by comma:
All the admin notifications will be sent out to the email addresses submitted in this field.
Can I change "From" address in admin notifications?
At present there is no way to change this address.
However, if you would like to contact your customers quickly by email, you can do that easily by replying to these notifications:
Each email contains a hidden field “reply to”, where e-mail address of the customer is set. If you click to reply to this notification, this very customer’s email address will be automatically put as a recipient email. This allows administrator to reply to the customer directly from the store's notification message.
