What - How- Why’s of Email Customization in WooCommerce

Making a sale in your WooCommerce store is pure joy. So what’s the immediate task you do once you receive an order. You draft an order confirmation email to the customer.
Right?
And similarly, WooCommerce emails are sent every time there is an active engagement with your customer. You’ll be sending New order emails, Cancelled order emails, Customer invoices, and many more.

And now, there is something to be answered. How do you want your WooCommerce emails to look?
Plain looking general templated emails or customized emails.
Or
How do you rate a brand when you receive a plain looking and generic email?
Definitely will not be impressed by the brand.
This is where you got to understand the importance of customizing your WooCommerce emails.

Why should you edit WooCommerce emails?

What is the first thing a customer receives on signing up with your online store?
A Welcome email.
And how do you share order details and invoices with your customers?
Transactional emails. Right?
So, your WooCommerce emails are the frequent channel of communication with your customers.
Shouldn’t those emails look impressive?

Well, here are the reasons why your WooCommerce emails should be customized,

  • The default WooCommerce emails aren’t that engaging.
  • Your emails such as Welcome emails, order and transactional emails are one-to-one conversation your customers. So, don’t send them with default email template. Personalised emails improve customer engagement.
  • Your store emails express the credibility of your online brand.
  • WooCommerce emails are the face value of your online store.
  • Your online store can perform better if the emails are customized.

Customizing Emails with default WooCommerce

Can’t emails be edited using the default options in WooCommerce?
Of course. You can definitely edit emails in WooCommerce.

WooCommerce> Settings > Emails

Have you tried editing your emails with the default options? If not pay attention to the following
Default WooCommerce only allows you to edit header image, font color, background color and footer text. And if you wish to customize more features like logo images, order tables you need to work it through the codes.

That’s definitely not cool.
And I agree that working with codes is highly tiring.

Now, the most obvious solution is to look for an email editor plugin.
