The Interaction with Email a Friend in Magento 2

Posted by

Email a Friend link is the link that allows your customers to share links to products with their friends. In the Magento demo store, you can see the Email a Friend link comes out as an envelope icon. You also can design the message template with your voice and brand. If you want to eliminate spamming, I recommend you limit the number of recipients for each email and the number of commodities that beneficiary can be shared over a one-hour.
