Customizing Receipt Emails
POS operators have the option to send the customer's receipt via email. Using this feature allows you an extra chance to connect with your customers and send them offers. NOTE: Even if a customer has requested to Opt Out of email marketing, email receipts will still be sent, allowing you to continue to reach these customers.
Since we don't want to risk your customers not receiving a receipt, the receipt email is turned on by default, and it cannot be turned off. So, if you do not click the Customize My Receipt checkbox and customize the receipt for your store, the customer will receive a simple, default receipt by email. NOTE: If you are working in an Offline Mode (not connected to the internet), the system will send the receipt emails once your POS device is online.
To customize your receipt email:
Select CUSTOMERS > EMAIL MARKETING.
Click the Set-Up indicator for the EMAIL RECEIPTS in the Recurring Emails section of the screen.
The information shown in the gray area in the middle of the screen is controlled by the system and contains the details of the transaction. You cannot edit or change this information.
The information shown under the gray area is copied from the information you entered on the SETTINGS > STORE INFORMATION screen in the Receipt Info box.
Create a Subject line. Remember, try to capture the recipient’s attention by welcoming them to your business and inviting them to return and shop again.
Upload your company’s logo or some other graphic by hovering over the image area at the top of the screen and clicking .
