Email if paid by bank transfer

Recommended Posts

Hello

I have a bank transfer payment gateway set up. I want it so if this is the chosen payment method it sends them an email informing them on how to pay it.

Any one know how?

"them" being the client ? a separate email ??

the usual three ways to inform a client of the method would be when they're paying an invoice, e.g...

  1. include the details in the Bank Transfer information textarea, e.g if you just need to add sort code/ account number etc... those details will be shown when they view the invoice from the client area.
  2. include the details in the email template, e.g Invoice Created - it's basically just a simple {if} statement...
    {if $invoice_payment_method eq "Bank Transfer"}
    Please send your BACS payment using the following details
    Sort Code: 12-34-56
    Account No: 98765432{/if}

    you should be able to access the {$invoice_payment_method} variable in any of the Invoice type email templates.

  3. similar to 2, with the PDF Invoice, you could edit the template to give the BT details if a) the invoice is unpaid (no point giving payment details if they've already paid) and b) the selected payment method is BT - again, it's just a simple IF statement.

@Tom Wilson I'd recommend the method outlined by @brian! I use bank transfer myself, and use the if statement in my email template to include the details
