We highly recommend reviewing the test email in detail to ensure;

  • Subject, preview text and sender email is correct
  • Spelling and grammar is correct
  • All links and buttons work and are linking to the proper pages
  • Discounts and prices are displaying properly based on the coupon added to the email and current price of the product(s)
  • Your email looks good! 

If you need to make any changes at this point, navigate back to the review page and click Add or Edit at the top.

Once you edit the email you can test again.

If your test email looks good, you're ready to send! You can click the Send Now button to send the email to the customer list or click Schedule to send a later date/time.
