Configuring Your Email Notifications

To begin, we'll start by logging into our Salesforce Commerce Cloud Business Manager and selecting the site of interest.

Next, we will open up the Merchant Tools dropdown. Within the section, we will select Preferences.

Here, we will be able to make configurations to our instance, including the configuration of our email notifications.

Next, we will configure our email notifications using the on-screen dropdowns.

For example, we can toggle off the Subscription Canceled notification by changing the dropdown Value to No.

By default, all email notifications are toggled on with a value of Yes shown in the dropdown Value field.

Changes will be applied to a single storefront. To apply your changes across multiple sites, simply select the Edit Across Sites option on the right-hand side of your screen

Thereafter, specify which sites you would like to enable a given preference. In the pictured example, we can enable the Decline Email Enabled preference across websites by setting the Value for the corresponding sites to Yes.

Alternatively, click Apply to Other Sites to apply your existing selections across other storefronts.

You'll be prompted to select which preferences you would like to carry over to your other storefronts.

To carry over your email notification preferences, simply check the corresponding boxes.

Then, click Next to select which sites you would like to apply your changes to.
