4. Variable Definitions

Emailed receipts can say whatever you’d like. Before sending the email, Chargify will replace the following keywords dynamically:

  • {{from_address}}
    • this will be replaced with Account@clientname.com if left as {{from_address}} though any valid email address will do.
  • {{name}}
    • the name of your customer. e.g. Bill Williams
  • {{payment.amount}}
    • the amount just paid, formatted in your currency
  • {{product_price}}
    • the recurring price of the subscription’s current product
  • {{product_name}}
    • the name of the product. e.g. Basic Plan
  • {{balance_in_cents}}
    • the amount, if any, they still owe. e.g. 0 (for $0.00) or 23100 (for $231.00) Useful for conditionally adding a reminder.
  • {{balance}}
    • the amount, if any, they still owe in dollars. e.g. $0.00 or $2.31
  • {{merchant_name}}
    • your merchant name. e.g. Client Name
