Order Reminders (Emails)
Click here to view the module's manual/guide
To make sure your customers pay on time, Kinento's Order Reminders
module provides you with an automatic reminder email based on order statuses. The module gives you an overview of all orders that are waiting for payment, including data on the amount of sent reminders. With invoice or proforma attachments, a multiple-fase reminder system and different settings for prepaid or onaccount customers, Order Reminders
provides the wanted functionality for any webshop.
Customers of Order Reminders
get access to Invoice Reminders
for free. Invoice Reminders
is similar to Order Reminders
, but is based on the status of invoices instead of the status of orders.
Three templates for a first, second, and for further reminder emails are provided, including all relevant order data. Additionally, the templates are customizable from within Magento (Transactional Emails), allowing to incorporate your wishes and represent your webshop's unique style.
Depending on your decisions, customers might be able to pay in advance or after shipment. Order Reminders
therefore supports both the attachment of a proforma document or an invoice. Options are available to indicate which customer groups will receive which attachment.
