Send a Payment Link with Virtual Terminal
Send payment links directly to your customers via text message from your Virtual Terminal. With the Virtual Terminal Send Payment Link feature, you can collect payments from customers in real time when they aren’t physically at your payments. Payment links are a secure payment method customers can use to pay right from their smartphone – without visiting a website – using their credit card, Apple Pay or Google Pay, where available.
There is 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 2.50% per transaction.
From your Virtual Terminal, select Virtual Terminal > Take a Payment
Add the items and the customer
From the Payment Method section of Payment Details, select Send Payment Link
Select your customer’s country code
Enter the customer’s phone number and click Send Link
Wait for confirmation that the customer completed the payment
Note: Selecting the back button while a payment is pending will cancel the payment link. Wait until you receive the payment before closing the window.
Your customer will receive a text message with a payment link. The link will take your customers directly to an online checkout page to pay on their mobile device.
