Mail to friend

Note: This feature is available since version 4.5.38.1.

 

This feature allows the affiliates to send the promo emails directly from their panel. 

You need to activate this feature at Start -> Features -> Mail to friend

Also you need to have some promo emails created (Banners -> Banners manager -> Add banner -> Promo email).

When this is done, the affiliate may login to his panel and navigate to Promotion -> Banners&Links and seek the promo email banner. Under that banner he/she will see  a 'Send to a friend' button:

 

 

After clicking that button a new window appears, where he/she may specify the recipient(s) and/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 affiliates to add their own text into these emails, he/she can insert the {$personal_message} variable into the promo email during its creation:

 

 

Affiliate will see in the 'Send to friend' window an input text area for inserting his/her personal message:

 

 

When he/she clicks the 'Send' button, the promo email will be sent.

NOTE: in order to have this feature work you need to have the email functionality set up correctly and also the cron job needs to be set up (Start -> Tools -> Integration -> Cron job).

 

 

Configuration
