Email templates are used to notify account contacts and users when system events such as dunning, billing and invoicing activities occur (e.g. an email sent when payment is overdue). Email templates can be configured with variables to provide dynamic data in email messages (e.g. a contact's name, account id, account balance, etc.).
In this example, we will create an email template that sends email notifications to the billing contacts of accounts that are in a past due state.
For additional details on the fields presented on the email template screen see the Email Templates screen help article.

Continue your message and select the Account Overdue Balance from the Variables → Account drop down to display the account’s current balance due in notification email
Finish the body of the email with the rest of your notice. When you are done, click the Save button
You can now add a ‘Send Notification’ level to a dunning rule and select the new Overdue Account template on the level.

The resulting overdue payment email will look similar to the below:
