FEATURES

Enabling/Disabling the ‘Track new sign ups’ feature

This feature allows you to capture new customers automatically and add them to the selected subscribers list. It is especially useful for automated welcome emails.

Select a Sender.net’s subscriber list into which the new customers emails will be saved.

The feature is enabled by default. To stop the ‘Track new sign ups‘ click on the the ‘Disable’ button.

Enabling/Disabling the ‘Guest cart tracking’ feature

Once the ‘Guest cart tracking’ is activated – all guest customers carts will be tracked if the email was submitted. In basic terms, that means that if the guest customer proceeds to checkout or creates an account or uses the instant checkout profile the cart will be tracked. It’s then possible to send the customer an abandoned cart reminder via our Automation tool to remind him about the items he left in the cart.

The feature is enabled by default.To start ‘Guest cart tracking’ click on the ‘Enable’ button.

Keep in mind that you have to select a Sender.net’s Mailing list to which your guest emails will be saved.

(NOTE: We only track emails if the customer agrees to receive newsletters upon checkout or registration)

Product import feature

This feature is always enabled.

This feature allows you to easily import products into the Sender.net’s email creator. All you need to do is to copy the product’s link and the system will automatically import the product to your email’s product block.

FORMS

When enabled, a Sender.net subscription forms will appear in the Module positions menu. It allows you to insert your Sender.net’s subscription form into your web page. All your forms must be created via the Sender.net’s Form creator. Once the form is created, you can see it in your plugins menu.

Enabling/Disabling the ‘Forms’

Head to the ‘Forms’ section in your Sender.net’s plugin menu

The feature is disabled by default. To enable the subscription form click the ‘Enable’ button and select a form.

E-COMMERCE FEATURES

Cart tracking

There are two types of cart tracking: Logged in Customers and Guest Customers (if  the instant checkout feature is enabled). You can choose separate lists for each group. If the tracking feature is enabled, there are a few requirements to be met in order for us to track the cart data. There must be an email provided, and the user must have agreed to receiving letters from you.

With the ‘Cart tracking’ feature you can use the Sender.net’s tools to automate your communication with your customers. This was physically impossible prior to that.
