Examples of Customer-Facing Email Messages
This article provides examples (in download PDF form) of the various email messages that FastSpring sends to customers for transaction, subscription, and account-related purposes.
FastSpring automatically sends transactional email messages (such as order receipts, notifications of subscription activity, and account management login links) to customers, from our address email@example.com. You can customize those messages via the Dashboard. This article provides examples of those messages in downloadable PDF format.
You can customize the sender's name and the reply-to address used for these messages via Settings → Store Settings.
Email message templates can be edited by selecting the Settings menu and then selecting Customer Notifications. Currently, it is possible to edit templates for order-related and subscription-related email messages, as well as the login link message for the account management site. For more information, please see Customer Notifications.
