Mail to friend


In order to have this feature work, you need to have the email functionality set up correctly!

This feature allows affiliates to send Promo e-mails (banner type) directly from their panel. This feature can be activated in Configuration --> Features --> Mail to friend.

You need to have some Promo e-mails created in Banners --> Banners manager --> Add banner -> Promo email. For more details regarding this type of banner, please, visit also the following article.

When this is done, the affiliate may log in to his panel and navigate to Promotion --> Banners & Links and seek the Promo e-mail banner. Under that banner, he will see the "Send to a friend" button



After clicking the "Send to a friend" button a new modal window appears, where an affiliate may specify the recipient(s) or load the last used recipients and choose whether to use the default system email or his/her email address as the "from" address


Personal message

If a merchant wants to allow the affiliate to add his own text into these emails, he has to insert the {$personal_message} variable into the Promo e-mail during its creation right where the personal message should be seen.



Affiliate will see in the "Send to friend" modal window an input text area for inserting his personal message


Further configuration

Send emails per minute - If affiliates are sending many emails and it causes a slowdown of your panel/server, you can define how many emails should be sent per minute. It causes that emails will be scheduled with delay.

Allow to use system email for affiliates - If this is checked, affiliates can choose the sender (email "from") as system email.

This configuration you can find in Merchant Panel --> Configuration --> Affiliate Panel --> General (tab)
