FaxStore comes shipped with the option to have an email system using popular API framework SendGrid. Currently FaxStore uses emails for the following;

  • When a customer purchases an item it sends them a confirmation email with a list of what they bought.

  • You're also able to email a specific user or all users with a custom email to notify users of changes.
