Frequently Asked Questions 

Question: What is a Fallback Value?
Answer: If a customer does not have a value for the merge tag you have selected, the fallback value will be used.  For example, if the customer does not have a value for First Name, instead of, “Hello” follow by nothing, you could use the fallback “there’ and it would read, “Hello there”.

Question: Can I make merge tags off of product-based custom fields?
