How to Setup Incomplete Payment Notification E-Mail

Last Update: October 15, 2016

Incomplete Payment is triggered when a person submitting to your form didn't send or settle the payment after redirected to the Payment gateway, for example, Paypal Payment Page.

Being informed of an incomplete payment is very important so you'd know who declined to pay. And so, we've added the option to Send Incomplete Payment Email.

How to setup Incomplete Payment Notification Email? Please follow the steps below:

1. Edit your Paypal payment form.

2. In the form builder, click the Paypal payment field.

3. Click the Wizard (wand icon):

3. Click the Settings icon on the top-right corner:

4. Under Additional Gateway Settings tab, find and select your preferred email option from the Pending Payment Email:

Notifiers Only - Only Email Notifications are sent

Notifiers & Autoresponders - Both Email Notifications and Autoresponders will be sent.

5. Don't forget to save your changes. 

Note: These email alerts are not instant. It should take somewhere between 30 minutes to 1 hour to be emailed, the delay is here to let customers finish their transactions and also it is a time buffer for the PayPal IPN to come through.

incomplete autoresponders are not being sent. I've followed the instructions on this page but when there are incomplete payment the auto responder is not sent. I don't see a place to choose the right auto responder.
