If you are living in the year 2017, there’s no chance that you haven’t heard of a little something called ‘payment links’. And if you haven’t, well, now you have!
What exactly is a Payment Link?
In simple words, a payment link is a url. But this ordinary looking url can perform wonderful functions for you. Unlike normal url’s, a payment link is a request for payment that can be easily shared over various social media platforms as well as e-mail/message.
Payment Links are primarily used to collect payments from people without the hassle of bank account number, bank documents or any other sign ups/registrations or fees.
With Easebuzz you can create 2 types of links:
1. Payment Request: To request your customer/friend to send you the requested amount directly.
2. Product Link: A product link allows your customers to see your product along with its details and purchase it.
