7.6.4 Setup automated Invoices Emails

Make sure before you activate this feature that all your email addresses are valid. Do not use dummy addresses to test, but instead use internal email. Use LOWER CASE only for email addresses!

Follow these seven steps

  1. Provide your ADvendio support@advendio.com with your sender email address. This address is used in step 3.

  2. ADvendio will send a verification email to your sender email address. Please follow the instructions you received to confirm the sender email address.

    1. This email will look similar to this:

      1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Subject: Amazon Web Services – Email Address Verification Request in region EU (Ireland) Dear Amazon Web Services Customer, We have received a request to authorize this email address for use with Amazon SES and Amazon Pinpoint in region EU (Ireland). If you requested this verification, please go to the following URL to confirm that you are authorized to use this email address: https://email-verification.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/?.... Your request will not be processed unless you confirm the address using this URL. .... Sincerely, The Amazon Web Services Team.

      Make sure that you don't sign up for Amazon Service yourself - ADvendio is handling that for you!

  3. If users are interested in sending their invoice emails with a DKIM signature then please contact support@advendio.com and this can be arranged. This is particularly useful for our users who are experiencing spam issues with their invoices via email. 

  4. Under Overview - Administrative settings enter your sender email address into the field ’Invoice Email From Email Address’ as well as our email server URL "https://exchange.advendio.com:8080/AdvendioMailProxy" into the field ‘Invoice Email Server Url’. 

  5. All media campaigns have the field Debtor which then links the individual campaign to the appropriate debtor (formerly called "invoice recipient"), they also have the field Invoice Email CC which can be populated with additional email addresses which will also receive a copy of the invoice by email.

  6. Create an "Invoice email template”: 

    1. Go to Setup, search “email templates”. 

    2. Select the folder “Invoice Email”  and create/modify the standard email template, check it to be available for use. Now it will automatically be used for the invoice email

    3. Additionally, you can create and configure multiple text templates to be used in automated invoice issuing

  7. Use the contact wizard to make sure that you select contacts for all media campaigns that you like to bill (in this case the Debtor is the recipient - the field “invoice email” on the invoice has to be filled with a valid email address) to receive the email template you just created. Additional recipients can be set up using the https://advendio.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/SO/pages/872579077 .
