All it Takes is a Payment Link: Accept Payments Without API Integration

What if you were told you could start accepting online payments without hiring developers, building API integrations, and implementing tech steps you don’t have the time for? Thankfully, there is an easy way, which so many businesses could benefit from amidst the COVID-19 crisis as well as when things return back to normal. 

COVID-19 has changed our life in mere weeks forcing us to rethink everything, from our daily routines, to the foundations and stability of the global economy and business models. Amidst the growing challenges and frustrations, many businesses, big and small, are forced to adapt, in order to survive. And while the prognosis for the global economy may sound dire, for many businesses, giving up is not an option. So, if your business cannot accept payments online (yet), now is the time to do that. 

“Set Up Online Payments NOW? During a Crisis? Are you Kidding Me?” 

With lockdowns and #StayHome rules imposed for over 30% of the world’s population, shoppers turn online for their shopping needs, including the simplest essentials. And while many businesses are equipped to accept payments online and their eStores support a number of payment methods with reliable payment gateways plugged in, others have been caught by the COVID-19 crisis by surprise. Any “mom & pop” store, or a local kebab takeaway now needs to be able to accept payments online as well as have the payment management and reporting tools necessary. 

As, there’s no time for serious infrastructure development (or finding a developer, for that matter), website revamps, and all the bells and whistles of a full-on payment infrastructure, you need to resort into a smarter way of doing things. 

BigWPay lets businesses accept online payments via a payment link. 

What is a Payment Link?

A payment link is a one-time invoice with the order data, which you send to your customer, usually via email or messenger. When the customer clicks on the payment link, they see the invoice for payment, and can input their payment details and proceed with the transaction. 

Yes, it’s as EASY as it sounds. Forget the API integrations – all you need to do is connect to BigWallet Payments Cashier. Once you’re connected, you will be able to create payment links, as well as monitor and manage your transactions. 

Generating a payment link literally takes seconds. It will carry the information of your business (website domain, for example), and be valid for the specific amount of time that you are able to define based on your needs. 

But that’s not it…


Even if you only use payment links, you will enjoy the convenience of the entire BigWallet Payments’ services suite, including the security of a regulated and PCI-DSS Level 1 certified payment provider. That means that payment links are fortified and secured with the highest levels of protection. Your business will also benefit from dynamic transaction routing, detailed decline reporting, intuitive user-interface, dedicated support, and so much more.
