What is Pay-by-Link and how does it work?
Pay-by-link is a secured, online card payment method for customers to use when making an order over the phone. Once you place an order, you will be sent an SMS with a link to click so you can securely fill in your card payment details and make the payment. This is a secure link that stays active for only 15 minutes from the time when you receive the text. If you still wish to pay by cash then you just need to ignore the text.
In most cases when you finish placing your cash order you will receive an automated message which will contain a card payment link, by clicking the link (Pay-by-Link) and filling in your card payment details you can then process a card payment for the order you made which will automatically update the takeaway that you have paid by card. If you choose to ignore the link, the order will remain as a cash order. This option will only be available if the takeaway has turned this feature on.
An example of the page you will see when you click the link is below.
