Often you would like to personalize your emails with your contact's name & other details. While using the standard Firecart Email Editor, you may have already used the mail-merge option by using the Custom Variables tab on the page.


 



Using this above option, it is very easy to mail-merge within the text of the designed email. However, this approach will not allow you to include custom variables in the subject lines or in custom uploaded HTML email. We now offer ways to do a mail-merge on your subject lines as well as custom HTML designed emails.
