What's a PayLink?

SmartTrade lets you take payments in a number of ways—full or partial, credit or debit card, even cash. But we also offer PayLink as a payment method. Let's take a look at what it is and how it works.

A PayLink is a emailed link that your customer can click on to pay their bill online. When you tap or click on "Get Paid for This Job" and choose an amount for the payment, you'll be presented with a few options, as you can see here:

When you choose "PayLink" and hit "Send Paylink" the app or Web Dashboard immediately sends your customer an email that looks like this:

All your customer has to do is click the big blue "Pay My Invoice" button, and they're brought to a screen where they can pay their invoice online with a debit or credit card.

That's all there is to it!

If your customer feels a bit wary about paying with their debit or credit card through your mobile, sending a PayLink can be a great way to reassure them. It's also very convenient when you finish a job when a customer isn't available to make a payment or want to take a deposit in advance.

And, as with all of our other payment methods, it's totally secure and meets the PCI Level 1 standard.
