The Send Payment Request tab enables you to send a payment request link to your customers so they can access a payment site and submit their payment. You can prefill the form with customer billing and transaction information which allows your customers to enter their payment method and submit the payment quickly and conveniently without having to enter additional information. In addition, you can save time by easily modifying previously-entered information and updating the payment site link without having to reenter all information again.

Tip:

  • If your account doesn‚Äôt include the Send Payment Request feature, you‚Äôll see information about it at the top of the screen. To add PaymentSITE to your account, click the Sign Up button.

Note: Only a partial screen sample is displayed below. All fields are documented in the following item description table.
