Accepting payments from your customers should be fuss-free.
HitPay’s Payment Links are just that - a link you share across your sales channel for your customers. Your customer clicks on the link, pays for their purchase in a secure, contactless way and you get your money instantly.
Here we’ll show you how to set up Payment Links for your online store through the HitPay dashboard and mobile app.
Why use payment links versus other payment methods?
- Collect payments anywhere online: HitPay’s Payment Links work across all your sales channels, including QR codes, WhatsApp, email, social media apps or PayNow. No need to fiddle around across multiple apps or interfaces; get everything done efficiently by sending or copy and pasting one link.
- Collect payments from customers remotely: Customers unable to come to your store or opting for contactless delivery? Your point of sale (POS) staff can send your customer a payment link to facilitate payment while maintaining physical safety and security.
- Speed up in-person payments with QR codes: Reduce in-store queueing time and enhance your customer experience by speeding up the payment process. Simply present the HitPay QR code within the mobile app to accept in-person payments using PayNow and digital wallet services like Apple Pay or Google Pay.
