- The Bidder Registration / Purchase Receipt will be sent for any purchase/registration that goes through the website's checkout page... basically when using the "shopping basket." Suppose a bidder follows a "Pay Online" link in an email to pay a balance owed. In that case, those payments will generate a Bidder Statement. Both of these are sent automatically at this point.
- If the bidder details get updated via the email Update link, and an email address is added, an E-Ticket will be automatically sent to the guest.
- The Mobile app notifications are managed via Online Bidding | Notifications settings.
- The Triggered Emails can be manually sent via the Trigger link. The link will open an appropriate send email page pre-configured for the specific notification. A Recipients filter will be available before the email is sent.
The Bidder Registration / Purchase Receipt is automatically sent, and cannot be disabled. The Bidder Statement text message version can only be sent manually.
