Where does the information come from for the mail merge codes?

The mail merge codes pull information from other parts of the system. Guest details are pulled from the guest contact information. Reservations details are pulled from the reservation information. The system also has a few codes which pull all reservation information into one display item. This is useful if you want to display a reservation summary, for example.

Is there a code to generate a link my guest can use to make a payment? What is the code for requesting the balance, even if the balance is not currently due? Can I override the amount due?

To generate a link for payments, use the code {{paymentlink}}. The URL generated by this code will request whatever amount is currently due, according to your payment schedule.

Use the code {{paymentlink_balance}} to request the entire balance, even if the balance is not currently due.

You may create links for payments of custom amounts by adding the amount to pay at the end of the payment link. For example, to request a payment of $500, you would add |500 to the end of a standard payment link, such as seen here:|11111|23423443|pay|500
