The Contact Form block comes with the option for your customers to enter their Name, Email, Phone Number and a message. You can edit the titles of these areas by clicking on the one you wish to edit.
You can also edit the text of the ‘Send Message’ button in the same way. If you hover over the ‘Send Message’ option, you can edit the ‘Button Settings’.

You can now select the mediums that you want to display on your page. This information is pulled from your 'Edit Site Information' area. You can access and edit it by following the steps below:
1. Go to your "Content" screen from the top menu
2. Select "Site Information" from the left-hand menu
3. Choose "Contact Details"
1. 'Show Email Contact form'.
We'd recommend not ticking 'Show Email Address'. This is because if your email address is shown then it is easy for spammers to pick it up and bombard you with unwanted mail.
2. 'Show CAPTCHA...'
This also makes it difficult for spam to get through the form.
3. 'Postal Address'
If you are selling items via long distance then this page is a good opportunity to get your physical address on your site, and fulfil that legal requirement.
You can indeed personalise the contact form. Simply delete the placeholder text and insert the text what you want each field to be.
You can also write your own Auto Response Message here.
You may indeed use a custom form instead. To do so simply select the relevant option as illustrated in the image below and see our help guide to get you started.
You may want to add an HTML fragment to spruce things up on your contact page. If this is the case then please select an HTML fragment that you have already uploaded to your account as shown below. Please see our guide on adding a HTML Fragment
