October 25, 2021

As a business, you aim to reach more people and ultimately get customers to pay for your products or services. Therefore, accepting payments should be the most straightforward step in that process. Right?

We know you agree. That's why ChatFood offers you an excellent option: Payment Links.

What is a payment link?

A payment link is an online payment method where a request for online payment is created and shared by the business to the customer for instant online payments. Clicking the shared link directs customers to a landing page for payment displaying the required amount, the purpose of payment, and the payment options such as credit or debit cards or mobile wallets.

Why should your business consider using payment links?

- With payment links, customers can pay from anywhere with their preferred payment option. Methods that include credit cards, debit cards, mobile wallets, etc. This increases customer satisfaction and can be used to build a loyal customer base.

- Complicated checkouts usually lead to cart abandonment. Offer your customers a simple checkout experience to increase revenue.

- They are perfect for social commerce. Since payment links can be shared via any social media channel (Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook, etc), they offer flexibility and provide customers with an instant payment option.

- You can identify who has paid you and who hasn't by managing and tracking the status of your payments in the ChatFood Dashboard.
