This blog will answer all of these questions by giving you the instructions for creating a new order email template in Email Builder. Let’s get going!

I. What is the Magento New Order Email?

When it comes to new order emails, it’s easy to understand that the email’s purpose is to keep either customers or store owners informed about the placing of an order. Like almost all of the other email templates, Magento new order email contains the basic parts of an email which are template name, template subject and template content.

II. Steps to create Magento 2 new order email in Email Builder

Now we’ll go straight into how to create a new order email template in Email Builder. The process includes 4 steps as the following. 

1. Email Header

First of all, we need to create a header for the email template. What about an eye-catching image describing your product? So at the top of your template, add a new row and set its background image like below:

The first row settings

After creating a background, it’s important to insert a logo for the email header. Because the logo is just about ⅓ of the row, I’ll divide this row into 3 columns:

create a 3 column layout

Then in the column of your right-hand side, insert an element called Email Logo with the settings like this:

2. Email Menu

Because I want to make the rest of the email stands out from the header, I’ll create a new row after the header, then choose a background color for it:

This section is to insert a menu of links to your pages. In this case, I’ll allow the menu to link to 3 pages that are a product page, Home page and About us page. In the Email Builder editor, add an Email Menu element, and see its settings below:
