Sharing your Pay Link πŸ”—

After generating your Pay Link with BoomFi, you can share it with your customers through multiple channels:

πŸ“˜

Here are a few common ways to share your Pay Link:

  • Email: Copy and send the Pay Link directly to your customers via email.
  • Website or Blog: Embed the Pay Link in an appropriate section on your website or blog.
  • Social Media: Share the Pay Link on platforms like Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

Connecting a customer to the pay link

When sending a pay link to a customer, you have the option to make a connection of the pay link with your customer through this customer's id. You can incorporate their id at the end of the pay link's URL, adding the parameter customer_ident. Below, you can see an example:

Original pay link URL

https://pay.boomfi.xyz/Pr1l6WoErz

Pay link URL with customer's id

https://pay.boomfi.xyz/Pr1l6WoErz?customer_ident=<YOUR_CUSTOMER_ID>

This will update the unique customer ID in the web app, which you can access through webhook calls.

Redirecting after a successful payment

You can customize any BoomFi pay link to automatically redirect your customers after they complete a payment. This is possible by incorporating a redirect URL as a query parameter in the original pay link URL. To perform this, follow the example below:

Original pay link URL

https://pay.boomfi.xyz/2bm4YuFSaw011jTWbevVPA3137q

Pay link URL with customer's id

https://pay.boomfi.xyz/2bm4YuFSaw011jTWbevVPA3137q?redirect_to=<REDIRECT_URL>

As the example above shows, a redirect_to query parameter was added to allow BoomFi to know where to redirect the customer after the payment.

Changing the amount and currency of a pay link

BoomFi gives you the flexibility to change the amount and/or currency of a paylink on the go.

Use cases for this feature:
