Email is a popular way for suppliers and customers to communicate. Email marketing allows you to communicate with your customers in order to promote your brand and increase sales.

Many Magento 2 extensions demand their own emails with specific templates, parameters, and conditions in addition to the normal email templates.

Declare config module

Create etc/adminhtml/system.xml.

You can create a field to load the email template in section and group by app/code/Bss/EmailDemo/etc/adminhtml/system.xml.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Config:etc/system_file.xsd">
        <tab id="bss" translate="label" sortOrder="300">           
            <label><![CDATA[Bss Commerce]]></label>
        <section id="email" translate="label" sortOrder="20" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="1">
            <label>Bss Email Demo</label>
            <group id="demo" translate="label" type="text" sortOrder="2" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="1">

                    <label>Email Template</label>

namespace Bss\EmailDemo\Helper;

use Magento\Framework\App\Helper\Context;
use Magento\Framework\Translate\Inline\StateInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Escaper;
use Magento\Framework\Mail\Template\TransportBuilder;

class Email extends \Magento\Framework\App\Helper\AbstractHelper
    protected $inlineTranslation;
    protected $escaper;
    protected $transportBuilder;
    protected $logger;

    public function __construct(
        Context $context,
        StateInterface $inlineTranslation,
        Escaper $escaper,
        TransportBuilder $transportBuilder
    ) {
        $this->inlineTranslation = $inlineTranslation;
        $this->escaper = $escaper;
        $this->transportBuilder = $transportBuilder;
        $this->logger = $context->getLogger();

    public function sendEmail()
        try {
            $sender = [
                'name' => $this->escaper->escapeHtml('Test'),
                'email' => $this->escaper->escapeHtml('humorgodfather9x02@gmail.com'),
            $transport = $this->transportBuilder
                        'area' => \Magento\Framework\App\Area::AREA_FRONTEND,
                        'store' => \Magento\Store\Model\Store::DEFAULT_STORE_ID,
                    'templateVar'  => 'My Topic',
        } catch (\Exception $e) {

    <tr>{{trans "Wellcome To: %templateVar." templateVar=$templateVar}}</tr>
{{template config_path="design/email/footer_template"}}

You can also send emails through Events or use the Plugin to add emails.

Catch Event

To test the email function, we test through the capture of the customer_register_success event when the customer registers the account successfully.

Create app/code/Bss/EmailDemo/etc/frontend/events.xml.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Event/etc/events.xsd">
    <event name="customer_register_success">
        <observer name="bss_email_customer_register" instance="Bss\EmailDemo\Observer\CustomerRegisterObserver"/>

Create Observer to Send Email

Create app/code/Bss/EmailDemo/Observer/CustomerRegisterObserver.php.

namespace Bss\EmailDemo\Observer;

use Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface;
use Bss\EmailDemo\Helper\Email;

class CustomerRegisterObserver implements ObserverInterface
    private $helperEmail;
    public function __construct(
        Email $helperEmail
    ) {
        $this->helperEmail = $helperEmail;
    public function execute(\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer)
        return $this->helperEmail->sendEmail();
