Is there a way of sending a message to a new member? I mean a personal note in addition to the default thank you message.
I can only see using their email address to send them a message, which is listed it their membership details.
Thanks, that’s what I suspected. But I hesitate as there’s no indication whether they explicitly opted-in to receive communications other than receipts and reward-related notifications or content.
Its not email subscription… you’re sending them an email to contact personally… if you want to use their email for marketing purposes then that’s against privacy act… unless you contact them personally then there is no issue with that.
I received an anonymous coffee that was paid through Stripe, which gives the Person’s email, so I thanked them. As @warengonzaga mentioned that’s not a marketing email, but a personal contact.
With all current regulations (CAN-SPAM, CASL, etc) I believe it’s also OK for you to include link to sign up to opt-in for your newsletter or marketing emails in something like a thank you email.
