Send emailed receipt for down payments charged through the SEK 🧾

With this new setting you will have the option to choose whether you want to have your contacts automatically be sent an emailed copy of their receipt for when they are charged a down payment through the SEK or not. You will be able to find this setting by going to your left side menu, Settings>Memberships, clicking on the 'Settings' option at the top of the page and scrolling down to where you will find the option to enable/disable the setting like so:

New 'Send Invoice Link Email Template' πŸ“§

You will now be able to customize the email template that is automatically generated for when you email a contact a link to pay for an invoice. This will work the exact same as the 'send receipt' email template where you will be able to customize the verbiage and the placement for the merge tags to fit where you want them to appear providing your contact with a more personal feel tailored exactly to your liking. You will be able to find this new option by going to your left side menu, Point of Sale Settings>Settings, and scrolling to the bottom of the page.

With this new option you will be able to control which memberships you would like to apply a surcharge to the recurring payments that you are selling through a checkout page. You will be able to find this option by editing a membership purchase item on your checkout page and scroll towards the middle of the pop up box which is where you will be able to find the surcharge option in the middle column like so:

πŸ”₯ Week 3 Updates πŸ”₯

New feature on checkout pages to allow each membership purchaser on the same checkout page purchase complete their own agreement πŸ“‘

With this new addition to checkout pages, when selling memberships through them and allowing multiple contacts to start a membership on the same checkout page purchase, you could provide them all with options to complete their own agreement instead of just having that option for the first purchaser listed on the checkout page. This will make it much easier for both you and your contacts to get that portion of the process completed without needing collect those signatures in person or needing to email them the agreement to have signed. For this to work you will first need to make sure you have the checkbox 'Sign Digital Agreement?' option turned on in the checkout page settings and make sure that you are not skipping the order completed page as well as making sure you have a digital agreement under the membership(s) you are offering on your checkout page.
