Currently, it is not possible to receive an email notification, from Wix, when a customer places an order in your Online Store. You can vote for this feature in this FAQ.


Note: After a customer places an order and completes the purchase process in your merchant account, the order will appear in your Wix Store Manager Orders tab.  In addition, you will be able to see your orders on your site dashboard without having to open the Editor!

Note: If you would like to receive notification emails when payment is received, you can have these emails sent to you from your merchant account, if they offer this service.
If you are using PayPal, please click here for instructions.
If you are using Authorize.net, please click here for instructions.
Skrill does not offer this service.


We would love to hear your feedback! If there are specific notifications that might help you manage your store more efficiently, please feel free to add them in this FAQ.

    Please add email notifications when an order is placed and make it available in a WiX app for eCommerce and small business owners.  The easier it is to stay connected and communicate with our customers, the more we'll sell!  Customer service is key to any successful business.

      Hi islanddoggie,

      Thank you for your feedback!

      I definitely agree with you.

      We take our user's feedback very seriously here at Wix.


      I hope this feature will be available soon.

    Please add email notifications, it would be great to be able to choose where the email address goes to as well per product. ie I want any orders for a cheese grater to go straight to Bob@cheesegratersareus.com  and any orders for potato mashers to go stright to Sally@potatomashersareus.com

    How many votes do you guys need before a new feature is implemented?

    Thanks :)

      Hello Missy,


      I have merged your question with the relevant Wishlist thread.

      Note that it is currently impossible, and that the only current way to receive mail notifications is via your payment gateway (i.e. PayPal).


      We are nonetheless aware of this much needed feature and working to add it.

      Thank you for voting.

      All the best, Or

    Please add email notification of orders placed in the store. It would be helpful to offer multiple email notifications also as I am only the webmaster. My book keeper needs a copy of activity also.

    With my complaint earlier, i don't think i worded it correctly. 

    I don't mind not getting an email from wix but it will not show up in my store manager!?

    I got the email from paypal to say that someone has payed me, but in the store manager it says i have not made an order.

    I also need to make sure this feature is available before I will sign up for an e commerce site with Wix.

    Hope it gets done soon!
