When creating or updating a customer, you can add custom fields to the customer record, which you will be able to use this fields in the email templates.

Custom fields types

Custom fields should cannot be a nested object.
At the moment, Remarkety supports the following types:

  • String
  • Boolean
  • Number
  • Date-time (date-time field name should have a suffix of "_at")

Custom fields names

You can name your fields however you like, but we recommend to keep it clear and simple.

API Examples

The following example will add a boolean field (is_vip) and a date-time field (wedding_at):

curl --request PUT \
  --url https://app.remarkety.com/api/v2/stores/{store_id}/customers/hash \
  --header 'accept: application/json' \
  --header 'content-type: application/json' \
  --data '{"customer": {"is_vip": true, "wedding_at": "2017-02-23T19:00:00+03:00"}}'

Using custom fields in tempaltes

Custom fields are available in email templates exactly like other customer fields.
You can use it like this: {$shopper.custom_field_name}
For example, to show the "wedding_at" custom field from the API Example, formatted, you can do:

To conditionally check a custom field, you can use:
{if $shopper.is_vip}VIP Club{/if}
