What is pay by link?

Pay by link is a request for payment, usually for businesses without a conventional store or shopfront. You create a link through your merchant account, embed it in an invoice and send it directly to the customer via email or SMS. They click on the ‘pay now’ button and make a payment without the faff. Track all your payments with the touch of a button in the merchant dashboard and access real-time reporting.

You want to make customer payments effortless. By sending them a direct link to make a payment, you couldn’t make it any more straightforward - it’s fail-safe!

How does a pay by link work?

You log in to your merchant account and create a unique payment link for your customer; this link can then be sent via email or SMS, direct to your client’s inbox or phone.

On clicking the link, the customer is taken to a secure landing page (with SSL security protocol) where they can fill in their banking details and make payment. You’ll have already filled in the invoice amount and the customer’s details - just like you would when sending a traditional invoice - so there’s very little learning curve, you already know how to do that!
