Name Day

Name Day
A unique and effective marketing extension that will help you develop a stronger relationship with your customers, and increase your sales.

Every day, you can send emails to customers celebrating their name days to wish them a happy name day and a good year ahead. You can include a special name day coupon to entice them with an exclusive deal. All with one click. Or with zero clicks (i.e. automatic setup).

The extension figures out whose name day it is, and show you the list. If you click send, the email is sent. If you set up the cron, emails are sent automatically every day - you don't even need to check.

Key features:
  • Choose to send email on the day or the day before.
  • WYSIWYG, multilingual email editor - send the exact message you wish to send.
  • Option to include an auto-generated coupon with a "name day discount" if you want.
  • Multi-language compatible.
  • Multi-store compatible.

More detailed features:
  • Multiple name day calendars (see country list below).
  • Name day calendars are editable.
  • Multiple name spellings.
  • Checks first and last name (because in some countries, people habitually fill last name in the first name box).
  • Test center to try out emails before sending.
  • Generate a cron command to setup the cron in cPanel.
  • Choose discount % for the coupon.
  • Choose when the coupon expires.
