Rather than typing a email message to your customers every time, you can create predefined messages that you can use over and over again, saving you time. These predefined messages are called Canned Responses.
This article covers:
On order listings in the control panel, select the orders on the left hand side, then scroll down to Bulk Actions and select Email > Message or Email > Order or Invoice.
An email form will display addressed to the customers whose orders you selected. If the same customer is selected more than once, they will receive multiple emails.
If you selected Order or Invoice, the email will contain a copy of the selected order.
While viewing an order in the control panel, click on the Email Order or Email Tax Invoice button. A pop-up window will appear with the order/invoice details in the email.
When viewing a list of customers, you can select the customer on the left hand side and scroll to the bottom of the page and select With Selected > Email Selected > Message.
While view the customer's card, click on the envelope icon to the right of the email address.
Select an RMA and click on the E-mail Customer tab.
Once you have the email form open (see Where Canned Responses are used):
