PaymentLink is a solution for merchants to create links for payments collection. Merchants can create links (or invoices) for a specific amount, expiration date and mix of payment methods and distribute them to their customer. When a customer consumes the link, a checkout with the requested payment methods is displayed to collect the payment.
The link can be embedded into emails, chat messages, social media, printed onto an invoice or shown as an QR code and allows your customer to complete their payment when they are ready.
1. Request a payment link
Use our API to get a new unique payment link. You can set the description, amount, currency, payment method(s) and expiration date you would like to offer. Please review the API Reference.
2. Share the link via any channel
You can share the link via any channel. Paste it behind a hyperlink in an email, direct message or chat; print it on an invoice or convert it into a QR for easy scanning with mobile devices.
3. Customer completes payment
There are two options available regarding customer payment completion:
3.1. Full redirected checkout
When your customers open a link, they are redirected to Acehub checkout to complete the payment associated with the PaymentLink. The payment occurs at Acehub platform so no sensitive data is posted to your server, leveraging PCI responsabilities to Acehub platform.
3.2. Embedded checkout
PaymentLink offers an alternative implementation for the customer checkout process. By using PaymentLink checkout customization library, a merchant can embed PaymentLink checkout into their own environment. Our hosted checkout is loaded into an iframe. Seeing your brand and URL in the browser address bar ensures the best trustful experience for your customer. The use of iframe ensures a merchant PCI concerns free integration.
Additionally, the customer is allowed to decline the PaymentLink, in case they disagree with the payment request. This option can be disabled by using the PaymentLink customization library.
4. You will get notified on the status of the payment
Upon completion, you will get notified via our webhooks system. This allows you to directly fulfill the order or to initiate the shipping processes.
