This feature is designed to allow the customer opt-in to receiving e-mails about new offers and products based on the Style of the order page. This option appears in the Marketing --> Checkout Settings section of the Control Panel. It is listed as "Show Accept Offers Option". There are three possible settings for this feature: "Yes, Checked" (default), "Yes, Unchecked", or "No". If you plan to run email campaigns in the future and don't have an alternate means of collecting opt-in email addresses, then we would recommend choosing "Yes, Checked".

Just below the "Show Accept Offers Option" dropdown is another dropdown called "Data Ownership." Changing these settings allow you to specify who owns the email addresses of the customers who opted in for the "accept offers" option on the order form. The default data ownership setting is "Standard." The following table illustrates the ownership options that correspond with each setting. (Please note that here we use the term "publisher" synonymously with "vendor.")

When the "Show Accept Offers Option" option is on it will be displayed in the data dump. It will display as "1" if the customer checked the box and blank if they did not. You may also view data dump details from the Order Report section of your control panel by selecting Comma Separated (unsorted) from the drop down box next to "Format as" and by selecting the date range that you need. The e-mail addresses of the customer's who did check the box can also be obtained from the "Email" search page. Any e-mail addresses that do not appear in this list cannot be used and would be considered Spam. When this option is enabled, it will display on the Billing page of the order.
