SuiteCommerce Web Stores

The preview functionality enables you to preview any web store email that is based on a system email template. The preview shows you what the email will look like to a web store customer. If you have multiple websites in your account or multiple languages defined in the system email template, you can quickly see what the email will look like when sent in different languages from different websites. Depending on the type of email, you can also select other options on the preview page to create a preview of a specific email.

Note

Email preview is available only for system email templates for web stores. It is not available for other types of system email templates, web store email templates, or customized text groups.
