Distribute Pay Link
It is possible to send a Pay Link to a customer. This enables customers to receive a ready-to-pay checkout session where they can finalize the purchase on their own device by identifying themselves and selecting a payment option
After the customer has received the Pay Link, the rest of the flow will be the same as for a regular Checkout session i.e. the notification callback to your system will be performed once the purchase is successful and if you have implemented the validate call it will be performed as usual.
The customer will get a text message similar to this:
To customize the text sent to the customer, please Contact Walley Merchant Services for configuration.
