Different use cases of Razorpay Payment Links

When a customer is making an online purchase, the step where the payment comes into the picture is one of the most crucial ones. Razorpay Payment Links can help you win over your customers and reduce the number of drop-offs. 

Here are some of the use cases of Razorpay Payment Links:

  • The link can be created and used by any business, no matter the size. Even if you don’t have an app or a website, you can easily create and share payment links and get amount settled directly in your bank account
  • These links reduce the hops and minimizes friction points. Let’s say you are a car rental service provider. A prospective customer calls you to enquire and plan a journey. Fortunately, the customer sounds satisfied and you sense a higher chance of him or her proceeding with you. But chances are that after he or she might get distracted or be unsure. There, you can create and send the payment link via SMS, WhatsApp, email etc. within seconds while they are on call and have a successful conversion right there!
  • Payment links are best when it comes to providing quality service to your customers. Let’s say, unfortunately, a payment method is failing and your customer is unable to complete the transaction. You can easily choose to create and send these payment links to them and they can pay as per their convenience. The best part is, you can track the status of the payment easily.
  • Another use case is for businesses that provide home delivery services. There can be multiple cases when the customer is not at home and want the parcel to be handed over to a neighbour or, he or she does not have enough cash. In such a situation, payment links can be a big help. The deliverer can simply create the link there and the customer can pay via a range of options from anywhere, anytime!

With this, we are excited to roll out one of the finest features of Payment Links.
