This page explains how to create an Email template with a payment request.

You can use an Auto Action email to send a Paypal payment request.


Paypal Link

  • Go to SETTINGS->PAYMENTS->PAYMENT GATEWAYS->PAYPAL and enter the Paypal email address to which you want the payment to go.
  • Go to SETTINGS->GUEST MANAGEMENT->AUTO ACTIONS and create an Auto Action. Use the context help (?Icons) and the help page (click on HELP in the top right menu) for general instructions.

In the "Email" tab click on "Edit" and enter your text. The template variable [PAYPALLINK] creates a clickable Paypal payment link (HTML A Tag) for the amount in the booking deposit field if non zero, otherwise the outstanding balance.

[PAYPALURL:25%] - Creates a Paypal payment url for a percentage of the outstanding balance.
