Payout Links help you send money to anyone whose fund account or bank details you do not have.

Usually you would talk to the recipient via email or phone to get their bank account details. Then you or your finance team upload the details to the bank portal, after which you process the payout.

This is a time-consuming process with the Contact receiving the money 7-10 days after you contact them. This heavily impacts the customer experience.

You can instead:

  1. Create and send a Payout Link via SMS and email to your Contact.
  2. Customer opens the link and enters their bank account details. This creates a Fund Account for the Contact.
  3. Payout is processed the instant the customer has entered their account details.

This boosts your customer's experience and creates a positive impact on your business image.
