Magento: Send a email to store owner when a order is placed.

It is not hard to set up a Magento multi store environment so when a order is placed in a store, a owner (one owner per store) gets a order confirmation email.
Doing like this will give a copy of the mail that is sent to the customer, and that might not be nice – but this is quick.

In admin, select the store you wish to enter the email address to, and under system > config > sales > sales e-mail override the site default with the email address you would like for this store.

It is also possible to send copies of shipment notices, credit mails etc (basically all mail that is sent from the store).

[Tested with v1.3.2.4]

  1. Is it possible to have multiple stores and if an order is placed with items from different stores to have an email sent to each store owner?

  2. @bryan: Using this approach it is not possible to send mails based on items.
    This only looks at the store-view (that is set in the admin panel), and that has so far been sufficient for me.

  3. yes, it is possible. It was work with my website. Can I edit the content of the mail ?

  4. @sunilal: This is a copy of the mail sent to the customer so the emails are stored at magento/app/locale/en_US/template/email (or what language you are using).
    A word of caution though: This method sends the same mail to the owner as to the customer. If you are looking for a nicer solution (for instance a mail that shows what to pick from the store and where) then I suggest you keep looking.
