By default, merchants receive an email notification for the following actions:
- A new customer completes authorisation (general, paylink, or plan)
- A customer's payment fails
- A customer's payment is cancelled
- A customer's payment is charged back
- A customer's mandate is cancelled
- A created payment exceeds the transaction limit
- Each day a payout is due
Once logged into your dashboard, head to Settings (top right of dashboard screen) and select User Settings. Scroll to the bottom of the page to find Email notifications and then (un)tick the options according to your preferences.
Certain notifications, such as payout emails, will always be sent and so have no option to deselect.
You're not able to manage notification recipients from within your administrator account. Instead, you would need to log in as the user, navigate to their User settings, and then (un)tick the required options in the Email notifications section at the bottom of the page.
ou can register a different email address to receive these via the Billing contact details field within the Company details section of your Settings area.
