Customer Area

Follow these instructions to create a payment link from your Customer Area.

Pay by Link API

Make a POST /paymentLinks by following these instructions to generate a payment link. You can create a reusable link which allows multiple customers to pay a fixed amount. Find an example here.


Default Pay by Link

There are 2 ways to start the default Pay by Link flow.

  • Let the customer select the payment link QR code on the terminal.
  • Launch the payment link QR code directly (possible in a Terminal API integration).

Automatic flow

If you opt for the automatic flow, the QR code with the payment link appears automatically a few seconds after you initiate a payment.

Tip: Learn more about in-store Pay by Link payments using the terminal API.
