How to Create a Payment Link
After a successful login to your dash, click on Payment on the side nav otherwise, click here to get to the page. Next, click on the “Add a new payment link” to proceed.
Select “Payment Link” on the sub-menu and click on the continue button to proceed.
There are three payment links; we have the one-time payment link, the recurring payment link, and the future payment authorization but in this tutorial we will explain how the one-time payment link works.
Complete the form by entering the Payment link name, amount to be paid, and a note.
You could also include the direct email address or the WhatsApp-enabled number you want the payment link sent to. You could also specify form fields to collect specific data.
With these steps, you can successfully create a payment link for your customers, and start receiving payments from anybody by simply sending a link.
