The purpose of this module is to bridge a gap in the current OSCommerce application.
At present only registered persons can choose to receive the newsletter. The goal of this module is to allow visitors who would not want to register or purchase at present to register to receive the store newsletter.
The process of the module is the following
The module provides the possibility for a visitor
-> to register to receive the newsletter. (all infos stored in a new table called subscribers)
-> to manage his registration throught a screen (modify info received and unsubscribe)
-> to have access (if registered) to the subscription center through the "my account" page.
The module provides the possibility for the store admin
-> to view and edit the subscribers info. (blacklist some users in order for them not to receive newsletters even though they are registered)
-> to manage the newsletters to be sent.
-> to manage the dynamic headers, footers, and unsubscribe links to be added to the body of the newsletter.
-> to synchronise info between customers table and subscribers table (optional)
