Please Note
When someone enters their name and email address, they go directly into your customer list.

The website administrator will not be notified, and the customer will not receive an email unless you send them one.

If anyone on your website makes an enquiry using the standard enquiry form, or places an order - they will also go into your customer list autmatically. So if you would like to differentiate who has signed up for your newsletter you would need to create a Customer Group.
 

Creating a new customer group

  1. Click on the Customers tab

    customers
     
  2. Click on Customer Groups

    customergroups
     
  3. Click on New Group

    newcustomergroup
     
  4. Type in the name of your new group into both the Code and Group Name text boxes, e.g. "Email Newsletter". The code is used as the unique identifier for this group, so it is less confusing if this is the same as the Group Name

  7. Click Save

    You may wish to create a number of public groups for people to select eg Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch or Retailer, Wholesaler etc.
