You've Got Mail (Part 1)

We interrupt this series on little known bot features that you can utilize on vacation to discuss a new feature, which ironically, can also be used on vacation.. the Email after trades feature.

You probably noticed this sometime on Sunday when this feature went live when you started seeing these emails coming to your email address which you used to register your bot(s). Currently, the emails contain the basic information that is available when you use the website. A trade which one of my bots performed is listed below:

The information is fairly basic. It lists the bot and the user who did business with the bot. It tells you if the bot bought, sold, or traded. Sets, and foil status as well as price per card is listed along with the totals. The screenshots are hyperlinks so you can click on them and see the actual trades.

Personally, I never get tired of seeing trades like this. A new customer and a large transaction. What's not to like?

Next time, I'll go into more details and how we can use these emails to better get a handle on our business.
