Successful Transactions - Email Receipt
For each of the processing methods outlined above, on a successful transaction Printer’s Plan will display an alert indicating the transaction is approved and processed by CardConnect:
If the Email Receipt field in the CardConnect Authorize window was set to Yes, an email message will appear:
Because a Quick Sale is not linked to a customer or contact, the To field of the email message is empty and requires a manual entry of an email address.
The default text for this email message can be customized. For Quick Sale payments, Printer’s plan uses the text file CardConnectQSReceipt.txt to populate the body of the email receipt. This template file is located in the Email folder on the server computer. For a listing of data fields that can be populated in the email message please review the Email Help - CardConnect.txt file. This help file resides in the email folder on the server computer.
