A note about "Sale Notification" emails:

The Frontend Submission plugin does not include a feature to email Vendors when their products have sold. This is because the Frontend Submissions plugin does not handle the actual "paying" to any of the Vendors. If desired, this is powered by the "EDD Commissions" extension.
