Email Statements

For online auctions, you have the option to email a statement to the participant with a payment link. The first steps are often times used to customize the statement to include the information and options you want. See Participant Statements for more information on this.

Edit Email Statements

Aside from the common statement options that are available you can also customize and edit the email content of the statement.

Changes are automatically saved during the editing process. When you are happy with the email you can return to the Email Statements page and continue with sending.

Linked Participants

If you want to address Linked Participants together the Bidder.GreetingNames placeholder can be used in emails and Word Templates that will work with the "linked participants" to generate a 'friendly' name suitable for a "greeting".

EXAMPLES

  • The linked participants John Smith and Jane Smith would be greeted as John & Jane Smith.
  • If they are John Doe and Jane Smith it would be John Doe & Jane Smith.

Select Participants

From the Select Participants tab, use the Recipients selectors to choose the Participants you want to send a Text Message statement.
