Testing Notifications

On the email content page, you can view and customize the content of your customers' email notifications, send test emails, and configure through which channels each email is sent.


By default, notification emails are sent via ReturnGO. When integrated with email marketing apps such as Klaviyo, etc. you can control the channels through which emails are sent. 

Emails sent from ReturnGO must be edited in ReturnGO, while emails sent through email marketing apps need to be created there.

The email notifications sent from ReturnGO are based on content templates. Each RMA event has its own template. 

To personalize the email content to the specific customer, order, and RMA, the email subject and body include variables that represent RMA information such as RMA ID, RMA status, customer’s first and last names, order ID, etc.  

RMA variables such as RMA status or reject reason can be used within your notification content to show personalized information.

If you have an email marketing integration in place, such as Klaviyo, RMA events such as request approved or shipment received can be used to trigger and send notifications in the marketing notification app.

When you have a marketing integration set up, you’ll see a list of the RMA events that can be used to trigger notifications to be sent from the third-party marketing platform.
