Send certificate to customer

The Send certificate to customer checkbox determines whether the customer receives a donation certificate with a PDF by email. The certificate will only be sent if the order status is set to Completed and the associated tree planting is set to Planted.

The checkbox Donate anonymously determines whether customer data such as first name, last name and the email are transmitted to TreeMates. If the checkbox is activated, no donation certificate will be sent by email in any case.
