Accept payments via Payment links

In this tutorial, we will explore how to use Payment links as a seamless and secure checkout option for merchants to receive payments. Through a self-hosted checkout page, Revolut provides an easy way to let your customers pay with their preferred payment method.

Furthermore, we will show how you can customise your checkout page with branding material representing your business.


Currently, custom redirection is not supported with Payment links. Upon payment completion or failure, customers are redirected to our self-hosted confirmation or error pages.

Payment link - Checkout page

Supported payment methods:

  • Revolut Pay
  • Apple Pay or Google Pay (depending on the customer's browser or device)
  • Credit or debit card
  • Easy bank transfer (UK only)

This checkout option is ideal for merchants who:

  • Don't have their own checkout page
  • Handle checkout by sending emails or text messages
  • Don't have a robust order management system
  • Are freelancers and only take payments for services on an occasional basis

  4. Select the currency, and fill in the amount and description fields.

  5. Click Create to generate the payment link.

  6. On the pop-up window, you can either send the link via email, or copy it and send it via your preferred solution.

  7. Track payment completion on the Merchant tab in your account.

  1. Create an order and provide at least the amount and currency parameters.
  2. Take the checkout_url and id (this will be needed to check payment status) parameters and save them.
