Renewal Reminders

Renewal reminders can be automated using the "Upcoming Renewal Reminder" option found within the "Shop > Subscriptions > Options" link. If set up to send reminders, the member/contact who owns the subscription will get an automated email based on the "Subscription: Upcoming Renewal Notice" e-mail template which you can edit from the "Integration > E-Mail Templates" page.
