This Zen Cart tutorial will teach zen cart users and store owners what the welcome email is, how it can be used, and how to turn it off, should you desire to do so.
The welcome email is basically an automated greeting that is sent out by your zen cart store to a customer after they register an account on your website. These emails can contain anything you want them to, from a simple ‘Hello and thank you’ message, to a special offer like a coupon code. Such offers can be extremely useful, as they entice the new customers to make purchases from your store. Sometimes, however, customers do not expect or want to receive a welcome email. This is the main reason for disabling this feature. This can be done quite easily by any zen cart user without the need for any advanced programming skills.
To disable the welcome email, you will need to open the
// send welcome email if (trim(EMAIL_SUBJECT) != ‘n/a’) zen_mail($name, $email_address, EMAIL_SUBJECT, $email_text, STORE_NAME, EMAIL_FROM, $html_msg, ‘welcome’);
All you need to do is comment out the ‘zen_mail()’ function and, and customers who sign up for an account on your zen cart website will no longer receive automated welcome emails.
