    Payment integration: Ability to set up on email alerts individual field variables for products and custom options

    Asked by District1010 on May 23, 2013 at 02:57 PM

    Slightly different request, we are selling tickets for an event that will run over three evenings and they can select up to 10 tickets for one of the 3 evenings. Hope to use Paypal for this. I want to be able to send them a receipt (autoresponder) that says 'Mr Fred Bloggs' thank you for purchasing (ten) tickets for (Friday) evening.

    I am quite happy to take any advice and can change the format if needs be to something that will work for us.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Thank you for contact us.

    you can create an autoresponder notification to accomplish this.

    check here for Creating a Form Autoresponder

    and for ticket - you can add a unique ID to the Autoresponder mail that is sent to the customer.

    check here for Submission ID for Customer Reference

    Hope this solves your problem,

    Thank you.

    Thanks can you tell me whether or not the Paypal quantities (number of tickets purchased) are added to the Autoresponder? Can I try this out?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately , there are not individual field variables for each product on a Payment integration , therefore Product field, Quantity field, etc,  cannot be configured in an autoresponder

    I will be opening a ticket to request this feature, if this is feasible to do , it will be implemented by our developers if we noticed an increasing number of people asking for this. At any rate, you should get an update, on this thread .

    OK I appreciate your reply but wonder if there is any form of solution? Basically I need to know how many tickets they will have paid for - is it possible to have just one item from the Paypal submission appearing on the autoresponder - Total Paid perhaps?

    have an idea, why cant you use a seperate text box to get the number of tickets  from the user. So that it will be send to the autoresponder mail. 

    Hope it will solve your problem.

    It's an option which hasn't escaped me but the problem might just be that they enter say five people on the form but only pay for two?

    @District1010

    Using the :product sub-tag for your payment field, you can parse the entire information for the product ordered.

    For example:

    Friday Concert Tickets (Amount: 20 USD, Quantity: 1)

    Is it really crucial to have the ability to extract specific info, like quantity? You can instead format your email this way:

    Mr Fred Bloggs, thank you for your purchase of Friday Concert Tickets (Amount: 20 USD, Quantity: 1)

    This seems very promising. Let us say that our Tickets sell at a unit cost of £9 and we sell 4 of them making £36. I would be very happy to see 'Thank you Mr Bloggs for your payment of £36' I don't need the quantity at all. In fact we list the names above in the acknowledgement so it really is unnecessary.  All I need to do now is understand how to add the amount paid to my notification.  That amount, in this case £36 only appears in the paypal form - how do I extract that?

    Sorry to be a bit thick but if nothing else I am relentless so once I understand I will make of point of explaining it in a way that hopefully others will too.

    This is the bit I fail to understand

    =============================================================

    Using the :product sub-tag for your payment field, you can parse the entire information for the product ordered.

    ============================================================

    I'm about to go back to my form where I assume I will see :product sub tag somewhere in the RHS column? Apparently not so where do I find it?

    This is possible with Neil's solution. You will need to use the :total sub-tag for your products tag on Email Notification/Autoresponder body.

    This is what you can try:

    Thank you Mr Bloggs for your payment of £{myProducts6:total}  

    Using the :product sub-tag for your payment field, you can parse the entire information for the product ordered. 

    We are referring to the {tags} on the Email Alerts.

    Please let us know if you need any further assistance on this.

    Very good indeed - this has worked well for me.  I have the customer list the number of people coming to the event and also have him record how many.

    This solution now provides me with a Total Paid (Paypal) thereby making it very simple to compare the number of people at the gate with the amount paid.

    Thank you.
