Self service payments
Payment links allow your service to receive online payments from your users. You don’t need to have a digital service to use payment links.
You can add a payment link to paper forms, letters or emails - or wherever you’d like your users to see it.
Benefits of using online payments
Online payments are 4 times more cost effective than offline methods, like cheques, money orders and cash payments.
By using self service payments your service can:
- speed up payment processes - you’ll be able to receive payments and issue refunds much quicker
- reduce human error and have fewer manual processes, like taking card payments over the phone
- receive fewer cheques, BACS and cash payments
Setting up a payment link
A payment link is quick and easy to set up and is ready to use right away. You don’t need any technical knowledge to create a payment link. You can create a payment link for a single user or make it reusable for all your users.
Add the payment link where your users can see it, like in a paper form, letter or email - or even on your website.
When your users access your payment link, they’ll be able to make an online card payment. Your users will receive a payment reference number and a confirmation email.
