Step 1.  Exporting Emails from the Floranext POS

Here's how to export your customer email addresses from Floranext.

Go to your Floranext Admin > Orders > Customers. On the right hand side is a "Export Emails" button.



 

Next it will ask where you want to save the file.  Select a folder that's easy to find - you will need to find it again when adding these emails to your newsletter contacts list.

 

Step 2. Sign up or log into your newsletter provider account

If you don't have a preferred provider, here are some we recommend:

Newsletter Providers:

MailChimp.com

MadMimi.com

ConstantContact.com

Each Newsletter provider has a free package that will work for most flowers shops and an easy-to-use guide to create gorgeous, custom newsletters.

Let's look at how to export emails from Floranext and add them to a MadMimi account. (Note all above providers have the same feature.)

 

3. Add your Floranext emails to your newsletter contacts (For example, MadMimi)

All the providers recommended allow you to add contacts to your email list by uploading the Email list exported from the Floranext POS.
