I have a basic Workflow that emails an accounts department when a new payment is made. A simple list governs all of this. Instead of sending one email for each list entry I would like to send one email at the end of the day summarising all payments. How can I achieve this in SPD2010? Many Thanks

What about Timer Job? At the end of the day, the Job runs, reads the list and sends emails ;) – Nk SP Aug 19 '14 at 9:43
Sounds good, how does this work, can it be done in SPD2010?? – JazzyN Aug 19 '14 at 10:01

Rather than developing a workflow, can you try out the Alert/ Notification options in which we can configure email frequency.

Thanks Joy, issue with alerts is that they do not contain the metadata and perform calculations such as calculate the price fields within the list – JazzyN Aug 19 '14 at 9:56
Yes, I agree that. Go for a Timer Job. You can schedule it to run based on your schedule. You can read the list data from the Timer Job. – Joy Rathnayake Aug 19 '14 at 10:04

You can use Timer Job.
A Timer Job is a periodically executed task inside SharePoint Server. It provides us a task execution environment.

Here you can find a tutorial on Timer Job

Thanks, I do not have Visual Studio though. Is there a way to do this without? – JazzyN Aug 19 '14 at 10:09
You can use some workarounds (see points 4 and 5): – Nk SP Aug 19 '14 at 10:12
