Overview


Have you ever thought that your can get a paid order just after sending your customer a link to buy it?

With the CS-Cart Pay by Link add-on, you can easily create payment links and deliver them directly to your customers' inbox. All you need is to create an order, copy the order’s link in your admin panel and send it automatically with an invitation letter containing a link to view and pay the order.

You can also send the link via Facebook or another social network with a private message to your customer.

If you have discussed all the details with a customer by phone, just place an order and send it via email. Without extra steps after clicking on the payment link your client will be automatically logged in and will be able to pay the order immediately.

  • Create payment links for orders;
  • Send the customer an invitation letter to view the order details;
  • Send the customer an invitation to pay the order;
  • Add payment links to invoices, email quotes and booking confirmations;
  • Avoid customers’ mistakes in orders;
  • Improve cash-flow by giving your customers a quick way to pay;
  • Enhance customer experience with a 'pay now' button in newsletters.
