PayLinks Introduction

PayLinks are a highly effective tool that allows merchants to reach their customers via email, text, chat, and more, enabling shoppers to pay whenever, wherever they like.

With Skipify PayLinks, you send us an API call with customer and order details, and we respond with a customized URL that takes your customers to a hosted Skipify Connected Checkout experience. Use Skipify to Send the PayLink directly via Email or SMS, or take the link and use your existing systems to embed this URL however you like!

You can put it in a text, an email, convert it to a QR code, or drop it into a chat experience. And because checkout is hosted by Skipify, you don’t need to worry about PCI compliance - we've got you covered.

Skipify PayLinks do not require the shopper to be a registered Skipify user - and they can enroll for Skipify during the experience with no disruption to their payment if they choose to.

However, if the shopper is a registered Skipify user, they can skip entering form fields during checkout and jump right into payment, speeding up checkout.

How it works

  1. Create a Link
    You send us an API call with the payment request details, and we respond with a customized, one-time-use URL. This URL will take your customer to our hosted checkout page. Since it's hosted by us, we handle PCI compliance!
  2. Share and Get Paid
    Send the PayLink via Email or SMS using the Skipify API or embed this URL however you like using whatever mechanisms work best for your business.
  3. Skipify Notifies You
    When customers complete their payment, Skipify sends a notification to a Webhook server that you specify. That way you’ll know whenever a payment is successful or fails.
