WooCommerce E-mails

Recommended Posts


Hi guys,


I was going to post this in the WooCommerce part of the forum, but wasn't able to. That's why I'm posting it here. I have some trouble with WooCommerce on my pagelines website and I thought you guys could maybe help me out. 


Last time I filed a support ticket at WooCommerce it took them some time to reply :)




First of all, I can't seem to find where I can change the e-mail address e-mails, about for example a new order, get sent to.


Second, it would be awesome if you guys also knew how to customize/edit the e-mail texts and template.


Thanks in advance!

The emails get sent to the main site administrator, under wp-admin => settings => general.


All the woocommerce emails settings are in the main woocommerce settings area, under 'Emails'


If you want to change the actual templates im afraid you'll have to ask the woocommerce crew.

Do you by any change know a way to work around this procedure and get the e-mails to be sent to another address?


I'll see what I'm able to do on the templates.

I don't have a specific answer but thought you might find something of interest here http://wpavengers.com. They're all free WC plug-ins (for now while in beta) so at least you can try things out before buying. I'm just now using the one called Follow-up Emails which is allowing me to create unique follow-up emails depending on what is purchased. And instead of buying it for $50 at WC I'll buy it here for $10 https://sozot.com/products/woocommerce-follow-up-emails-extension/. Apparently there's a big hub-bub with WC and their developers. This is so much cheaper because there's no support and updates are not automatic, though you can still download and update. Hope that's helpful.

Hi sheilahoff, that looks like some pretty awesome stuff. I'm gonna look further in to it asap. Thanks for the tip! 

I got some tips from the WooCommerce support desk too, I'll share it with you guys. They replied as following:


  1. In this case the best method would be to work with WooCommerce custom templates. Basically a custom template allows you to override WooCommerce default files and use your own custom files instead. Here is a quick tutorial that will explain you how to create your custom templates: http://docs.woothemes.com/document/template-structure/. All emails templates are located in the templates/emails/ folder.

  2. Same here, you can use a custom template to remove this text. This text is present intemplates/checkout/form-login.php and templates/checkout/form-billing.php.

I haven't looked in to it yet, am gonna do it now. Hope it helps other people this way too. Thanks for your help.

      Hello everyone,
      I face a common problem as I can see on relevant topics with quickshop plugin. 
      On Product Single page of woocommerce, i use quickshop as layout. The primary photo of my product doesn't appear on the thumb slider, but the first image is the default placeholder. 
      Need some help not with custom script in the product description for each product. 
      Have a look on my website: http://lillyandsid.gr/shop/camp-things-top/

      I have Quickshop installed on my WooCommerce section of this website: http://a04.125.myftpupload.com/
      Main Shop: http://a04.125.myftpupload.com/?page_id=1198
      I've having what appears to be CSS issues on the individual product pages. After cleaning up any code accessible from the wp-admin, the page still appears broken. I never tried to customize it, it just came broken like this right out of the box.
      You can see examples of it broken on every single product page, see here:
      Can somebody help?

      I am setting up a Woocommerce site using PL Framework and Platform 5. I added a hook so the category description appears under the category page titles (on archive pages). However, it also appears under the title on the main "shop" page (which I have renamed "Catelog" page). There is a default description here and I can't figure out for the life of me where it is being generated from so I can change it. Any ideas how to change it or delete it on the main shop page ONLY? The staging site is here - http://16e.117.myftpupload.com/ and the page in question is http://16e.117.myftpupload.com/catalog/
      I have hit up Woocommerce support and they weren't familiar with Platform 5 and recommended I contact you.
      Your help would be appreciated, thanks!
