COVID-19 Product News Tips / 22.04.2020
With the COVID-19 pandemic, many business owners are wondering how to protect and grow their business during a crisis. Research indicates that we’re headed towards a recession and it is in these times that businesses need to be innovative in order to continue on their growth trajectory.
If you’re looking for ways to grow your business in uncertain times, we’ve got you covered!
1. Accept payments with myPOS PayLink or Payment Request
Accept payments seamlessly with myPOS PayLinks and myPOS Payment Requests. All you need to do is generate a payment link and send it through email, SMS, Viber, Messenger etc. There’s absolutely no need for you to have a website!
Let’s take a closer look at these two online payment solutions:
You can generate PayLinks from your myPOS account. You can add a description of the item being sold, the currency, and the expiry date of the link. Then easily send it to your customers via social media, email, or SMS. PayLinks are often used for multiple payments at the same amount. It’s that easy.
A Payment Request, on the other hand, is similar to a PayLink, but it’s a personalised payment link, used for single payments. It allows you to request money from your customers around the world. With this online payment acceptance service, you can send a Payment Request to your customers by email, SMS from your myPOS account, the myPOS app or directly from your card payment machine. You can also get detailed reports on your Payment Requests, especially information such as whether your customer has viewed the request and how often a payment attempt was made.
