Send a Payment Link with Virtual Terminal
Send payment links directly to your customers via text message using Square’s Virtual Terminal from your laptop or desktop computer. You can collect contactless payments from customers in real time when they aren’t physically with you. Payment links are a secure payment method customers can use to pay directly from their mobile device using their debit or credit card – including mobile wallets such as Apple Pay or Google Pay – or via Afterpay where available.
There–s no monthly fee for sending payment links via text message from your Virtual Terminal. You’ll only pay Square’s standard Virtual Terminal processing fee of 3.4% + $0.15 per transaction.
