Card by Link

Use cases

Supported scenarios


Card by link is an easy to use solution to get paid directly from your customers by sending them a link via email. Once clicked this link redirects them to SlimPay's Checkout and allows them to complete a payment or register for a payment plan.

Example: Recovering a failed payment with Card by Link



You can visit this page for more details about how to do it via our API or via our Dashboard. 

Use cases

Businesses can encounter in many cases the need to push a payment request to their customers. Some the use cases could be : 

  • Debt collection
  • Cart abandonments
  • Time-limited subscriptions (box sales...)
  • Merchants without websites (small gyms, associations, street fundraisers…)
  • Insurance companies
  • Handling failed payments


Supported payment scenarios

Depending on your use case, customers could be asked either to complete a one-off payment OR a recurring payment.

In case of a debt collection for example, merchants would need a unique payment, while in the case of renewing a food box subscription, merchants would need to set up a new recurring payment.
