The Email Text Field(s)

The Email Text (email_text) field enables the merchant to include personalized messages in the customer's confirmation email. (A copy of this message is also included in the merchant confirmation email.) Each input field is optional and limited by the user's browser to 256 characters.

To use the EMAIL TEXT fields, simply add the following line(s) to your order form.

To include a preset message, use a hidden input field:

<input type="hidden" name="email_text" value="Message #1" />

To allow your customer to input data to be included in the email confirmation, use a text input field:

<input type="text" name="email_text" />

You may also use a combination of hidden and customer-entered fields:

<input type="hidden" name="email_text" value="The customer ID provided is: " />

Enter your Customer ID: <input type="text" name="email_text2" />

You may include up to ten separate text fields that will be appended together, separated with a line space, and included in the body of the confirmation email sent to the customer and merchant.
