Request a payment

There are 4 ways of getting paid via GiftPay Business depending on what kind of business you have:

1 - Page Redirect

This is the most popular and suitable for online business. Redirect your customer to your business page on GiftPay{website_code}&amount={amount}&user_id={user_id}&unique_id={unique_id}¬es={notes}


{website_code} (required) - is a unique identifier of each business on GiftPay, it's provided immediately after you add your business.
{amount} (required) - integer amount in USD that your customer needs to pay.
{user_id} (required) - an identifier of the customer in your system, you can track payments with this identifier, can be any alphanumerical string.
{unique_id} (optional) - an identifier of the transaction in your system, it cannot be repeated, used to avoid duplicate payments for single invoice or order.
{notes} (optional) - notes to be shown on the payment screen.

2 - Payment Code

You can also generate a Payment code that can be entered on GiftPay App.

This method is less popular, but is a popular method for in person or over the phone transaction.

The person who wants to get paid, generates the Payment Code and the customer enters the code on GiftPay App to complete the payment.

3 - Scan QR Code

Similar to Payment Code, QR code is generated by the person who wants to get paid, this time the customer simply scans the QR and completes the payment.

QR code and Payment code are generated using the same REST API method:

POST: JSON object:

    "website_code": "{website_code}",
    "amount": "{amount}",
    "user_id": "{user_id}",
    "unique_id": "{unique_id}",
    "notes": "{notes}"

4 - Merchant Code

You may not have programming skills but want to give your customers better experience by displaying your logo on payment screen.

In this case, instead of using traditional GiftPay, you can add your business and provide your Merchant Code to the customers.

Your customers can pay you by entering Merchant Code on the App, your logo and company name will be displayed on the payment screen.

Check our demo page to see how each method would look on your website.

Track Payments - Webhook URL

Each time you receive a payment or transaction status is changed, our system sends an HTTP request to the Webhook URL that you can set for each business in your account settings.

The request will be sent with order_id parameter that you should use to get detailed information about the payment.{order_id}&nonce={nonce} is your Webhook URL that you need to put in settings.

Order Details
