sending a second email when an order is made to another email address


Recommended Posts

Afternoon everyone - first post :) . Just found prestashops new stock control to be a real benefit over another cart i was using- anyway.................


I'm trying to adapt the email notifications.


When an order is created in the back office (manually by the admin) an email confirmation is sent to the default store email, what i would like to do is also send a slightly edited version of that email to another set email address (the store room) that will hold just basic item and delivery address information.


any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

is it REALLY necessary to change the Email? If not really a must, easiest is to just automatically forward the Email from the first receiving Email address to the store room, using a 'rule'.


If not, let us know, then we check the source code where to edit...


My "simplicity above all" 2 cents,

Hi PascalVG


We'd like the full email (with costs/invoice) to go to the shop contact - and an edited version of the email that just holds the products & product quantity information to go to a store man when an order is made.


just not sure which files i should edit, thanks,

Hi ather,

I expect you should edit the file: classes/Mail.php



here you find the function Send()


almost at the end, it really sends the email using this piece of code:


/* Send mail */

$send = $swift->send($message, $to, new Swift_Address($from, $from_name));


return $send;


just above this piece of code, the $message is assembled.

So you can add something like this:


if ($template ='order_conf')


assemble new message...

$storemansend= swift->send($modifiedmessage, $storemanEmail, new Swift_Address($from, $from_name))



(maybe put this storeman email just BEFORE the original send, so that the "return $send;" stays the same)



N.B. he Send function is called from classes/PaymentModule.php:

function validateOrder()

almost at the end you see this piece of code:

  if (Validate::isEmail($this->context->customer->email))
    Mail::l('Order confirmation', (int)$order->id_lang),
    $this->context->customer->firstname.' '.$this->context->customer->lastname,
    null, _PS_MAIL_DIR_, false, (int)$order->id_shop



My 2 cents,
