Autofill payment details with Link
Link lets customers check out with one click and allows them to securely save their payment information. They can reuse their payment information on your site and across hundreds of thousands of businesses for faster checkout. When new customers come to your site, they can use Link with the Card Element to pay with their saved payment details. With Link, customers don’t need to manually enter their payment information, resulting in:
- Faster checkout
- Higher likelihood of purchase completion
- Increased customer purchase frequency
Link is fully compatible with the other features you receive from card payments (subscriptions, and so on). There are no additional fees for using Link.
We’re always increasing the number of funding sources customers can pay with through their Link account to match local payment method preferences. We’ll keep you updated as we make these changes.
How Link works with Card Element
The right side of the card input form displays a Link button. When a returning Link customer clicks on the Link button, they’re asked to authenticate with an SMS or email code. After the customer authenticates, Link loads their previously saved payment details, and they can pay with one click. If they previously authenticated their account in the last 90 days on your site or through a different Link-enabled business, they won’t need to do it again and can pay instantly.
New Link customers are prompted to save their information in a Link account when they click the Link button.
You can learn more about your customer’s Link experience in the Link customer FAQ.
