Here in this tutorial we will show you how to edit the default email templates in Magento.

  1. After login, go to system > Transactional Emails
  2. Click on “Add New Template” on the top right
  3. Under “Template” choose the template you want to edit
  4. Click on “Load Template”
  5. After Loading, do take note the path that is circled in red – See image below (Copy it to somewhere else like notepad or MS Word)
  6.  Add the email “Template Name” (Advice format to use: “Template Original Name – Your Company Name ”)
    Example: “New Order – MyCompany”, so you know that this template is edited by you
  7. Edit the Subject and Template Content (Try not to touch anything that is inside “{{ Some Codes }}”, they are variable unless you know what you are doing)
  8. Once done, click on “Save Template” at top right
  9. The system is still using the default template, you will need to tell the system to use the template you edited
  10. Follow the path on point 5 that you had taken note just now
  11. Select and choose from the drop-down the template you edited
  12. Save and test it.
