# Send statement when payment made
By default this option is disabled, it is enabled by selecting an appropriate option from drop-down selector (other than No).
If this setting is enabled (a green check mark will appear beside its menu item), a purchase statement/receipt will be sent to the bidder/purchaser with every completed purchase.
Leaving this disabled would allow for end-of-event batch-style processing for bidders providing them with a single invoice for their account balance to pay.
Statements can be sent by "Email only" or "Email and text (if available)". See Text Messages for more details on "text" availability.
Click the check mark icon to save the changes made to the Checkout Options; or, click the arrow icon to close the window without saving any changes.
