Want your customers to checkout with email, so you can send a quote? Or to send the order to a re-seller? In any case, you can easily add the option to checkout with Email.

🔰 Before you get started

This article assumes that you've already set up the Shop Configuration for your Flipbooks. If you haven't already, take a moment to read our Setting up Shop guide, which will show you how:

Adding the Email Checkout option

So now that you've set up the basics of your Shop Configuration, it's time to add Email Checkout. Open your Flipbook where you'll have your Email Checkout. Then, under Modules, select Shop configurations, and click Create.

From here, we can begin to configure how your Email Checkout will work. When setting up a new Shop Configuration, Email is the default option and setup for you.

Personalizing your email checkout

Whether you're creating a new Email Checkout, or editing an existing one, you can edit all the various options available to you by navigating to the relevant Checkout Option, clicking on the '' icon, and selecting Edit.

Aside from being able to edit the Name of your Checkout option, so you can easily find it later, there are a number of editable fields available to you:

  1. Header text: The header to be displayed on the email form.

  2. Introduction message: The introduction text you displayed on the email form.

  3. Confirmation message: The confirmation text you want to be displayed when the email is successfully sent.

  4. Checkout button label: When the email checkout is enabled, what you type in this field will show on the email checkout button.

  5. Form field: The input variables that will be shown in the form that users will see before submitting the email request. The values entered by the user can be used in both a fixed template, and the user template.

Form fields

Besides the basket contents sent with the email, you can add fields, you want the customer to fill before checking out. This could be anything from a customer ID, to the email of a re-seller, that should also receive the order. 

Other options

Required fields

Any fields you might add can be set as a required field, meaning they need to be populated by the customer.

Field validation

Some fields allow you to validate on number, URL, or email. This means that if, for example, a customer enters an email address incorrectly – without an @ symbol, the system will pick up the error. Smart!

You're almost there! Now for the last few fields to enter before you're ready to start taking orders!

Order- and Confirmation email

  1. Prepopulate the email address(es) of the recipient(s). If you have multiple email addresses, these should be separated with a semicolon

  2. This is the subject field of that email

  3. Here, you can customize the design of your order email. All sent order emails will use this template.

  4. The subject field in the Receipt email, we send to your customer

  5. Customize the design of your receipt/confirmation email. All sent receipt emails will use this template.

🎉 And that's it! Simply save your new checkout option, add it to a Flipbook and start taking orders!
