BigCommerce Legacy Email Templates

Email templates provide the framework for the store emails automatically sent to customers. You can edit these templates locally then upload them to the store via WebDav, or make changes to them directly in the store’s control panel. For information on which user actions trigger these emails to be sent to a customer, see Email Template Files and Snippets.
