This is quite fancy/powerful and useful if you are a online store developer creating stores for many clients, trying to show off.
However, if you are a small store owner setting up your store yourself, you may find that the email notification you get when an order is placed, is rather sparse.
The simple idea behind this vQmod is that when an order is placed, the store owner gets the exact same email as the customer.
This is helpful for small store owners as they can see the detailed order including who placed it without having to log into the store AP.
It is also useful for store owners and developers to see what the customers get when they place an order.
This mod also fixes an OpenCart bug whereby the HTML emails being sent to customers did not include order comments/instructions. With this mod, the order confirmation to customer as well as the order notification to store owner include the order comments.
- Download the latest version of the extension compatible with your version of Opencart from http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route ... on_id=6371
- Unzip using a program such as WinZip, WinRar or Windows's inbuilt compressor
(In Windows, right click on the downloaded zip file, and select Extract All)
- Use an FTP program such as FileZilla to upload all contents of the uploads folder to your shop's root.
And then nothing. You're all done. There are no configurations or admin options. Once you are done with the above steps, the extension should start working. You as store owner should get exactly the same email that your customer receives upon placing an order. Simple!
I'm not getting any order confirmation emails
Were you getting any order confirmation emails before installing this extension? This extension does NOT deal with sending of emails, only with the CONTENT.
Go to AP > System Settings > Mail, and ensure that New Order Alert Email is set as Yes. If you are still not receiving mails, you are facing a more generic issue regarding you SMTP etc. Search these forums for a solution.
What else does this mod do?
This mod is designed to do one thing only - to send the exact same order confirmation email to shop admin as it sends to the customer.
Will this mod add product photos to the email?
If you use Product Photos mod to add photos to order confirmations sent to customers, then admin emails will also include product photos.
This mod adds my link to your site's footer (next to the Opencart link). It would be nice if you don't remove it. If you do remove it, please consider donating.
