Thread: body of order email confirmation message

    Default body of order email confirmation message

    When an order is placed, the customer receives the same default email message that the store owner receives (see below). This email is not customer-friendly (no thank you message, etc.) and contains a link to the secure admin, which of course, the customer cannot access and should not be in the email.

    Below is the email text I'm talking about. My question is, how can a more customer-friendly email be sent to the customer upon placing an order?

    I think that is what you are looking for. It does still apply to MS2-MAX

    It would be great if someone could write better instructions geared for a newbie on how to modify the order email as I am sure many store owners want to put there own custom message in - Like thank you for your order!

    I am going to change the text of the customer order confirmation email.

    At about line 292 of catalog/checkout_process.php

    Code:
    // lets start with the email confirmation
    $email_order = STORE_NAME . "\n" .
    EMAIL_SEPARATOR . "\n" .
    EMAIL_TEXT_ORDER_NUMBER . ' ' . $insert_id . "\n" .
    //nfmg edit I added the next line to add text to customer order email
    EMAIL_TEXT_NOTE . "\n" .
    EMAIL_TEXT_INVOICE_URL . ' ' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_ACCOUNT_HISTORY_INFO, 'order_id=' . $insert_id, 'SSL', false) . "\n" .
    EMAIL_TEXT_DATE_ORDERED . ' ' . strftime(DATE_FORMAT_LONG) . "\n\n";
    then, in includes/languages/english/checkout_process.php line 16

    Code:
    define('EMAIL_TEXT_SUBJECT', 'Order Process');
    define('EMAIL_TEXT_ORDER_NUMBER', 'Order Number:');
    define('EMAIL_TEXT_INVOICE_URL', 'Detailed Invoice:');
    //nfmg edit I added the next line so that folks could find their downloads more easily later
    define('EMAIL_TEXT_NOTE', 'Note: your downloads, if any, are also available at the following link');
    define('EMAIL_TEXT_DATE_ORDERED', 'Date Ordered:');
    define('EMAIL_TEXT_PRODUCTS', 'Products');
    define('EMAIL_TEXT_SUBTOTAL', 'Sub-Total:');
    define('EMAIL_TEXT_TAX', 'Tax: ');
    Then you end up with a customer order email that looks like this:

    ItsaDoozy Kite Store
    ------------------------------------------------------
    Order Number: 207
    Note: your downloads, if any, are also available at the following link
    Detailed Invoice: https://www.itsadoozy.net/catalog/ac...p?order_id=207
    Date Ordered: Thursday 09 June, 2005


    It worked for me. I don't know if it's the approved way to do this. Your mileage may vary...
