A PrintMailing is a printed and enveloped mailing. It consists of the content and an envelope that can be sent by post to your newsletter recipients.
To implement a print mailing, please contact your sales contact person and discuss the layout and contents of the print mailing. According to your specifications, the layout of the print mailing will be created and a PDF will be generated from it, which will be sent to the service provider PIN. The service provider uses the PDF to create the PrintMailing template for the mailing. The dynamic and static contents are defined in this template. The dynamic contents are inserted into the PrintMailing via the replacement variables as soon as a PrintMailing is to be sent.
The implementation of the PrintMailing template is done by the service provider PIN.
Once the template is completed, the data for the assignment area ("Customer" "Job" "Campaign", "Parameter Mapping") is returned and entered in the respective fields. The print mailing is then tested for appearance and functionality and can then be used in a campaign in the Campaign Designer.
A PrintMailing is created within the "Mailings" folder by clicking on "+ New", "PrintMailing"
The preview shows a screenshot of the selected mailing and the previous statistics of successfully completed and unique profiles.
If a preview image is entered in the configuration, it is displayed within the Preview tab.
The customer data and the code snipped for the allocation of the dynamic contents are inserted under the item allocation. The code snipped is provided by the service provider and inserted in the Parameter Mapping area.
