Pay by Link

Last updated: 17-May-2024


Pay by Link is an easy and secure way that allows you to receive payments from customers. You will generate a payment link by providing payment details (amount and currency) in Verifone Central. The link can be shared with your customers through the desired engagement channels. When your customers visit the link, they are prompted to complete the payment. After they have completed the payment, you can review the payment status and transaction details in Verifone Central under the Payment Links page.

   This integration method is available via Verifone Central and Checkout API.


  • If you do not have an eCommerce solution or are still building your web shop or mobile app and you need to collect payments from your customers.
  • If your business is handling phone transactions in a Call Center, you can accept payments securely, and prevent bank details from being shared over the phone.
  • If you need to collect payments in addition to web and in-store checkout by accepting payments on multiple channels (Email/ Call Center/ SMS/ Social Media), thus speeding up the transactions.
  • If you want to reduce the cart abandonment rates by placing payment links directly in the message sent as a follow-up to customers who left before making a purchase.
  • If you want to offer your business customers a simpler and quicker way to pay their invoices and improve your cash flow.


   For Mail Order or Telephone Order (MOTO) transactions where the cardholder shares their card details and you (the merchant) enter their details on their behalf, use Virtual Terminal.



  • Merchant Cashier – can generate payment links: create, set the payment and the customer details, send the customer the payment link, and follow the transaction status.
  • Merchant Supervisor – can generate and send payment links and initiate a refund.
   For instructions on how to generate a payment link, share the payment link and other options check the Create a Payment Link documentation.
