What are Zettle Payment Links best for?
The quick startup and no lock-in make Zettle Payment Links great for getting up and running with card not present transactions in no time. iZettle has traditionally aimed to make payments easy for entrepreneurs, small businesses and low-volume merchants alike, which is certainly achieved with the free app and simple fee.
Cost-wise, Zettle’s fixed transaction rate for payment links is best for businesses making less than £2,000 monthly, as you may be able to get better rates for cardholder not present transactions with other providers.
That being said, if you just need to accept payment links temporarily or during some seasons, the lack of requirements to process a certain amount each month makes this a good deal that avoids the ongoing costs seen elsewhere.
The Go app works for both retail and food-and-drink, and using payment links is a natural extension to these sectors. But really, most merchants could use Payment Link as its generic functions can be adapted to so many payment request situations. For example, you can secure bookings, take deposits, close sales online and sell from a shop on the phone.
Professionals who are more used to detailed invoices with a due date and client information should look at Zettle’s invoicing.
