Distribute Pay Link

It is possible to send a Pay Link to a customer. This enables customers to receive a ready-to-pay checkout session where they can finalize the purchase on their own device by identifying themselves and selecting a payment option

After the customer has received the Pay Link, the rest of the flow will be the same as for a regular Checkout session i.e. the notification callback to your system will be performed once the purchase is successful and if you have implemented the validate call it will be performed as usual.

The customer will get a text message similar to this:

To customize the text sent to the customer, please Contact Walley Merchant Services for configuration.

To distribute a Pay Link you must first create the Checkout session as you normally do by following the Basic Steps here

Once you have created a Checkout session it can be distributed to an end customer by issuing a POST request as per below:

POST /checkouts/1eec44b5-66d3-4058-a31f-3444229fb727/paylink HTTP/1.1
