When working in the Receipt Editor in Virtuous, there are several Merge tags that can be used in mail receipts. But when you create a receipt using the "Multiple Gifts per receipt" option, you won't see the complete list.


Well, when creating a statement, it's not possible to embed Gift data in the body of the receipt text, as you can with a receipt for a single Gift. Instead, you'll need to use the Gift Table.

But with mail receipts — and ONLY with mail receipts — you can edit the Gift Table to customize the data included. This is not possible with email receipts.

NOTE: These merge tags are for the Receipt Template builder ONLY. The Legacy Receipt builder uses a different structure for merge tags.

Since the merge tag view is limited, use this handy guide to customize your Gift Table values. The list below includes ALL available merge tags, including those you'll see in the builder, just in case. 😉

To include any of these values in your receipt template, you can copy and paste the values you see on the right below, including the "%" signs.
