Email cart details to customer

With Email cart for Shopify POS, you can create a cart and send your customer an email that lets them complete their checkout online. The email includes a summary of the customer's cart and a link to your store's online checkout.

After the email is sent, the order is saved as a draft in Shopify until the customer clicks the link and completes the checkout. When the customer has paid for their cart, the draft is saved as a completed order on the Orders page in Shopify.

When you use Email cart for Shopify POS on an iOS device, you can view sales attribution for Email cart orders. The sale is attributed to the staff logged in through their email to Shopify POS when the Email cart email is sent. Email carts can't track staff signed in under PIN. You can track staff sales in the sales by staff report.

You can send an email for a cart only if you're accepting payment for the entire order. You can't accept partial payment in person, and then send an Email cart email to collect the balance.
