Benefits to you and your customers

How LINK Mobile Invoice Works

LINK Mobile Invoice is a great option for requesting payments. It works with a variety of distribution channels, including SMS. You’re able to collect payments using your preferred and integrated Payment Service Providers (PSPs). So how does it actually work?

First, our LINK Mobile Invoice API receives the billing information and other content that will be sent by SMS to customers.

A link is generated that leads to a customized and branded landing page, including your company´s logo, colors, design, and correct billing information.

Then, customers receive an SMS containing this URL that will bring them to the landing page.

Your company’s back–end system receives a notification when the payment is completed.

You can add more information about your company or include a mobile marketing campaign on the receipt page, as it’s guaranteed that the customer sees this final confirmation page.

Using LINK Mobile Invoice

There are endless ways to use LINK Mobile Invoice. Here are just a few:

  • Event ticket purchasing, such as for concerts, theater, or conferences

  • Requesting payment of an invoice

  • Charging for digital services and content

  • Sending reminders for late payments

TietoEVRY Customer Case

Our customer TietoEVRY worked with LINK Mobility Sweden to offer their customers a mobile payment option. LINK Mobile Invoice was integrated with TietoEVRY’s Multichannel service to enable customers to receive invoices over SMS. Customers receive an SMS with a link to a personalized landing page with the invoice information. If the mobile invoice doesn’t work, there is a well-functioning fallback solution so the customer doesn’t miss a payment due date – and TietoEVRY gets paid on time.
