Using a Magento 2 Theme for Transactional Email


Frustrated by Magento? Then you’ll love Commerce Bug, the must have debugging extension for anyone using Magento. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a seasoned pro, Commerce Bug will save you and your team hours everyday. Grab a copy and start working with Magento instead of against it.

Updated for Magento 2! No Frills Magento Layout is the only Magento front end book you'll ever need. Get your copy today!

Given Magento 2’s enterprise ambitions, it wouldn’t surprise me if most stores are routing their transactional emails through a seperate (or a series of seperate) email systems. Because Enterprise™. However, if you’re sticking to Magento’s default email system for the password reset, order thank you, sign up, etc. emails, then you might want to check out Daniel Sloof’s Custom Email Theme extension. This extension allows you pick any installed Magento theme and have Magento use it (instead of the Blank theme) for transactional emails.

It’s odd to see this sort of fuctionality missing from Magento’s core more than two years after release.
