Discover a simpler way to receive payments with Dapio Payment Links

It should be the easy part. But for many business owners, getting paid for goods and services can prove unexpectedly challenging. Whether chasing up late payments or rectifying accounting errors, receiving money online can be a drain on time and resources. But no longer.

Dapio’s Payment Link technology streamlines the payments process to create a smoother experience for both buyer and seller. Suitable for businesses great and small, our automated billing solution helps take the heavy lifting out of online transactions.

What is a payment link?

A payment link is a unique URL that directs buyers to a customised webpage, hosted by Dapio. Here, clients can view an itemised list of goods and services rendered, and can complete transactions using the secure payment methods provided.

As a simple yet effective billing tool, payment links can be used in a variety of circumstances, including:

  • One-time payment links are shared through social media, instant messaging, text, or email.
  • Custom payment links are attached to email invoices, with detailed pricing breakdowns.
  • A clickable ‘buy’ button which redirects to a merchant’s checkout page

How are payments made?

You don’t need to be a coding expert to integrate Dapio Payment Links into your billing process.

Our tech does the hard work so that sellers can focus on what they do best.

To help explain just how simple it is, we’ve broken the whole process down into seven easy-to-follow steps.

Step 1: Seller generates a unique payment link using their Dapio app.
Step 2: Seller shares the link with their customer (through email, text, or online messaging).
Step 3: The customer opens the link and is directed to a safe webpage hosted by Dapio.
Step 4: The customer fills in their Visa/Mastercard details and hits ‘pay’.

Step 6: Payment is made!
Step 7: Funds will settle in the seller’s account within 3 business days.
