Create payment links with Connect
You can create payment links for connected accounts, which support several approaches for collecting payments. You can use direct charges to create them directly on the connected account. Alternatively, you can create payment links on the platform with transfers to the connected account by using destination charges. You can also take an application fee on these payment links.
Create a payment link using direct charges
To create an payment link that directly charges on a connected account, create a payment link while authenticated as the connected account. For this to work, you must also create the product and the price on the connected account.

You can also create a destination charge with the
on_behalf_of parameter set to the connected account ID (by default, it is the platform). The

- Whose address and phone number the end user sees
- The settlement currency of the charge
- The payment page branding the customer sees
Fulfill orders placed through payment links
After an end user pays through a payment link you need to enable your connected accounts to handle any fulfillment necessary.
Configure a webhook endpoint in your dashboard.
Then create an HTTP endpoint on your server to monitor for completed payments. Make sure to replace the endpoint secret key (
whsec_...) in the example with your key.
