Default Customize Email/Invoice Notifications

Is there an easy way to set-up when customers placing an order get e-mail notifications? Currently, when a customer places an order, any time the status changes, they are receiving two e-mails - for example, if I change the status of an order to "processing", the customer receives an e-mail that states "your order has changed" AND an e-mail stating "your order is processing".....it does the same thing when the status is changed to shipped. My customers don't want or need two e-mails each time their status changes - one is sufficient. How can I get rid of the "Your order has changed" message?

I know on the contact page, there are check boxes for "E-mail order details to the sales department about not finished orders" and "E-mail order details to customers about not finished orders" - I do not have either of these check boxes marked.

I also know I can go into Translations/Edit Labels and change bad/missing punctuation and phrasing, which I have done.

I am sure getting rid of the "your order has changed" message can be done with custom skin, but I am not sure how to go about it. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi Belinda!
It sounds as there is an extra order status change and that is the reason why your customer receives an extra email.

Do I understand you correctly that it happens when they submit order via Paypal?

Hi Tony,

I use PayPal Payments Advanced, if that makes a difference - and as far as I know, it is happening with every single order and every status change. Every time the status changes customers get two e-mail messages - one stating "the order has changed" and one stating the new status of the order.

Any help would be great - thanks again Tony!

Default Re: Customize Email/Invoice Notifications

Hi Tony,

I did the latest update today (5.1.4) - and it did not fix the e-mails issue - in fact, the first customer that placed an order got seven (yes, seven) emails. I would prefer to just turn off the automatic e-mails altogether - is that an option?? The subject of the messages always has an exclamation point after the order number, which is unprofessional and not necessary. I changed a lot of the punctuation to be correct (in the edit labels tab of the translations page), but the first sentence of the "Your order has changed" e-mail has no punctuation and I can not find it in the "edit labels" tab to fix - it looks terribly unprofessional - it could at least say "Your order status has changed." - but the whole message is completely unnecessary.

Bottom line, when a customer places an order, any time the status changes, they are receiving two e-mails - for example, if I change the status of an order to "processing", the customer receives an e-mail that states "your order has changed" AND an e-mail stating "your order is processing".....it does the same thing when the status is changed to shipped. My customers don't want or need two e-mails each time their status changes - one is sufficient.

Any advice?? Am I able to turn off the automatic e-mails completely?? Your assistance is truly appreciated.

Belinda

Just checked the problem and it turned out that there is a problem Paypal Express Checkout transactions. This bug will be fixed in 5.1.5.

Are you using Paypal Express Checkout? If so, this is a bug and it will be fixed in 5.1.6. I am sorry for that.

Tony.

No, i don't use any payment processor because my store is only to place orders for my customers and there is no electronic payment involved.
