Hello, German law requires me to attach my right of withdrawal as a PDF to the confirmation email. Is there any way to do this? I am using the external app orderly emails to create templates for my confirmation emails.

When you buy a product from a shopify store, you get a confirmation email to confirm that you bought the products and that everything is fine, there is where I need to attach a pdf to every confirmation email we send out. We are using the external app orderly emails.

Hi, @luciaticozzi

Thanks for reaching out in our Community forums and for sharing your concern, I’d be happy to help.

 

You mentioned that you need a way to attach your right of withdrawal PDF file to the confirmation email for all of your orders. I'd be happy to provide some guidance here but I'd always suggest reaching out to your independent legal counsel to ensure you are following your local laws. 

 

Firstly, you could use a third party service that would generate the invoice email and embed the PDF file. I took a look around our App Store and found an app called The Sufio: Professional Invoices. This app offers the functionality to easily create and send credit and delivery notes, packing slips, pro forma invoices, quotes and estimates to your customers. They also claim that all of their documents are compliant with accounting legislation in Germany. Alternatively, I suggest checking out our App Store for other available delivery apps that may be suitable for your business. If you have any questions about the apps, or need a hand setting them up, feel free to reach out to the developers directly as they could provide some more information.

 

I was also able to find a possible solution by taking a look at this thread. It was suggested that involved adding the right of withdrawal form to your return policy page on your Shopify store, and linking this page on the confirmation email.  

 

I’m happy to provide some tips and guidance and I'd love to know more about your business! What type of products are you selling? Are you planning on selling only domestically, or internationally?

 

Looking forward to hearing from you!

I am also looking for a solution for this and it's frustrating that Shopify doesn't seem to have this functionality as standard, considering it is a legal requirement in Germany. Why would you sell an ecom platform that does not satisfy legal requirements in the country of sale? Maybe this has been updated in the last 3 years, please advise if this is the case. Thanks
