Payment Links

New API Version:
We are introducing a new version of APIs for Payment Links. This will be available from 01 Sep 2020.


Old API URL: https://api.razorpay.com/v1/invoices


New API URL: https://api.razorpay.com/v1/payment_links

Some of the existing request and response parameters have changed and new ones have been added.

Pass this information to your developers and ask them to change your integration accordingly.



Payment Links are URLs that you can send to your customers through SMS and email to collect payments from them. Customers can click on the URL, which opens the payment request page, and complete the payment using any of the available payment methods.

You can easily set up and use Payment Links with these APIs:

Postman Collection#

We have a Postman collection to make the integration quicker and easier. Click the Download Postman Collection button below to get started.

Instructions for using the Postman Collection#

  • All Razorpay APIs are authorized using Basic Authorization.
    • Generate API Keys from the Dashboard .
    • Add your API Keys in Postman. Selected the required API → Auth → Type = Basic Auth → Username = <Your_Key_ID>; Password = <Your_Key_secret>
  • Some APIs in the collection require data specific to your account either in the request body or as path or query parameters.
    • For example, the Fetch a Payment Link API requires you to add the plink_id as a path parameter in the endpoint.
    • Such parameters are enclosed with {} in the collection. For example, {plink_id}.
    • The API throws an error if these values are incorrect or do not exist in your system.The API throws an error if this value is incorrect or does not exist in your system.

Verify Signature#

You can verify the razorpay_signature parameter to validate that it is authentic and sent from Razorpay servers.

The razorpay_payment_link_id​ attribute should have been stored in your system against an order, right after it was returned in the create Payment Link response. This is displayed as just id (for example, "id": "plink_FKeEiabyAAiSVQ") in the response.

The razorpay_signature should be validated by your server. In order to verify the signature, you need to create a signature using razorpay_payment_link_id, razorpay_payment_link_reference_id, razorpay_payment_link_status and razorpay_payment_id​ as payload and your key_secret​ (your API secret) as secret.

After validating the signature, you should fetch the order in your system corresponding to the razorpay_payment_link_id​ and mark this order as successful.
