Managing payment links


You can manually generate a link to a payment page to send to a customer to complete payment. Use cases include:

  • A customer wants to adjust an existing order instead of creating a new order.
  • You need to create a transaction for a manually generated order.
  • MultiSafepay collects a payment for an amount that doesn’t match any order. If you accept the payment, you need to manually generate a payment link and email it to [email protected]
  • A Bank Transfer transaction has expired.
Payment methods

All payment methods are supported.

The payment page displays all payment methods activated for the relevant website. If you want to display specific payment methods, you need to create a new website profile with only the relevant methods activated.

Number of customer attempts

The customer can open the link to the payment page up to 20 times, after which the link is disabled.

Each attempt creates a new transaction. If the customer completes payment in one of these transactions, the status of the other transactions remains Initialized until they expire.

You can generate payment links via:
