Automate your invoicing process with Saferpay
Do you waste too much time sending invoices or reminders to your customers? Are you losing too much time checking incoming payments? Then start using payment links for invoicing your customers. With our new Saferpay Secure PayGate API, you can fully automate your process whether by e-mail, mail or online. This not only saves you time, but also enables your customers to settle the invoice using their preferred payment method.
What is Saferpay Secure PayGate?
Saferpay Secure PayGate is an integrated Saferpay feature which you use to generate encrypted payment links. It is really easy to create individually tailored offers or invoices in the Saferpay Backoffice and then send them directly to your customers by e-mail.
Alternatively, it is possible to export the generated payment links to any other application. This makes it possible to address more channels. Previously, such processes were performed manually in the Saferpay Backoffice. The new API extends the unique functionality of Secure PayGate with a variety of new options.
Why use the new Saferpay Secure PayGate API?
Every company must invoice its customers. Unfortunately, most companies lose a lot of time and money by using outdated manual processes for invoicing, payment reminders and incoming payment verification. Secure PayGate offers both companies and their customers numerous advantages from which all parties involved can benefit.
- Allow your customers to pay using their preferred payment method
- Receive instant notifications in your system about the payment outcome
- Get a detailed overview of all transactions in the Saferpay Backoffice
- Execute follow-up transactions, such as refunds, directly from your system via the API or manually in the Backoffice
- Gain trust with your individual design of the payment page
How to integrate the payment link into your invoice
Choose the method that is easiest for your customers, depending on how you make the invoice available to your customer.
There are three ways to integrate the payment link:
Invoice example with all three integration types
- Hyperlink / Button
Integrate the URL as a hyperlink or payment button in your e-mail invoice or customer account so that your customers are conveniently redirected to the payment page with just one click.
Generate a QR code for your customer from the payment link which they can scan with their smartphone. Highly recommended for a seamless user experience with mobile payments and paper copies of invoices.
Insert the URL as text if your medium does not support active links or use it as an alternative for customers without a QR code scanner.
Schedule the payment deadlines and automate reminders
You can specify the payment deadlines in the API call and automatically send reminders which include fees if you have not received payment notifications. This saves you time and allows you to concentrate fully on your actual business.
