What is a payment link?
If you sell goods or services online, you’ll need different methods to accept payments. But creating your own payment page or gateway and adding certification for accepting payments can be complex, time-exhausting, and expensive. So what is the solution? Fortunately, you can use payment links instead of traditional card options.
A payment link is any one-time link or Uniform Resource Locator (URL) sent over SMS (or text), email, chat message, social media, or other means, such as Facebook Messenger, to allow the recipient to enter their card payment details online. Payment links are usually time-sensitive or only valid until the payment is made.
Payment links also take the form of email invoices or buy buttons that can be attached to any online communications that redirect to the full invoicing page or eCommerce website’s checkout page.
