In the quest to help small and medium businesses get to online transactions and cashless payments, PointCheckout introduced the PlayLink by PointCheckout app; an application that allows business owners to send payment links to clients for remote payment specifically for delivery and social media sales. To continue on the success of the PayLink launch, PointCheckout also launched the PayLink Shops, a free website building tool to enable its clients to launch their own online store in minutes including an integrated payment gateway. Below are the most advantageous features of The PayLink Shops:
Free e-commerce Shop
Most small business owners wanting to start selling online either use a free or low-cost website template which does not have any local payment gateway option or spend money on a professional website before knowing the volume of sales expected. It is then exceptionally difficult to signup with an online payment gateway and links it to that website template, as many payment gateways have hefty fees for starting entrepreneurs online. To address this need, the PayLink provided this service free of charge as a support for small business owners and to specifically address the need to move sales online starting with a payment gateway account.
The PayLink Shop can be customized to the merchant need with their own brand, identity and colors.
Fast and easy setup
The PayLink Shop can be created easily from the app, with smart Shop management tools for full overview and editing capabilities. The merchant online shop is optimized for fast checkout, so clients can simply choose their items and pay within minutes. Each product also has a unique link that can be shared over social media for direct purchases.
Customizing the store’s specifications and conditions
The PayLink Shops gives the merchants the flexibility to add their own custom colors and logo in order to reflect their brand. This advantage especially on the payment page gives the clients a unified experience and the assurances of a safe and secure checkout process. Additional features include:
Adding local and international shipping with respective prices
Different product variations including prices, sizes, etc
Ability to add a separate shipping address than the billing address
Add the VAT to the final price of the product if applicable
The PayLink Shops is available for free by simply opening an account with PayLink for online payments, and the app still enables merchants to send payment links from the mobile app directly to clients regardless of the Shop setup.
