What are iZettle Payment Links best for?
The quick startup and no lock-in make iZettle Payment Link great for getting up and running with remote payments in no time. iZettle aims 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, iZettle’s regular 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 only during some seasons, the lack of requirements to process a certain amount each month makes this a good deal that avoid the ongoing costs seen elsewhere.
Since the Go app has good features for retail and food-and-drink, using payment links is a natural extension to these sectors’ payment methods. But really, almost any merchant could use Payment Link, because 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.
In support for small, independent businesses, iZettle has also launched a Forever Local directory that payment link users can add themselves to for free. The directory is aimed at promoting your business to customers looking for local delivery, pick-up and in-person services/products.
Professionals who are more used to detailed invoices with due date and client information would benefit more from iZettle’s invoicing.
