How to use Mail Merge for Bank of America payment receipts?


Payment Receipts

A payment receipt is a document given to a customer as proof of full or partial payment. Bank of America has mandated sending these receipts digitally through an email for every successful payment and refund.

You need to enable and configure the following email notifications in Chargebee:

  1. The one-time charge is successful

  2. The initial/Recurring charge is successful

  3. Refund is successful

For complying with the requirements of Bank of America, the following fields must be configured in Chargebee’s Email Notifications section:

  1. Merchant Name and Address

  2. Merchant Customer Service Phone Number

  3. Transaction Type e.g. Sale, Refund, etc.

  4. URL or Customer Service Email Address

  5. RRN (Reconciliation ID) for Payments and Refunds

  6. Authorization Code for Payments

  7. Card Network (eg., Visa, Mastercard)

  8. Invoice Details

  9. Transaction amount - This is available in the email template by default, so you don’t need to add it manually.
