Payment request link

With this integration, you get full access to the Ozow portal, where you can easily and quickly create and send payment links to your customers. To generate a payment request, enter these details.

  • The payment amount
  • Customer's name
  • Reference you expect on your bank statement (e.g an invoice number)
  • The payment link delivery method

💬 SMS link

Ask for your customer’s cellphone number, and enter it into the payment request portal. Your customer will then receive an SMS Request Link with a payment link.

📩 Email link

Ask for your customer’s email address, and enter it into the payment request portal. Your customer will receive an email with a payment link.

📱 QR code

You’ll get a unique Ozow QR Code. Your customers can then scan this QR Code with their device, before being redirected to the payment process. You also have the option to create bulk payment request links using QR Codes.

💬

Keep in mind

Bulk payment requires you send the links out (Ozow only generates bulk payment links, we don’t distribute them). That being said, we also give you the option to make static or dynamic payment requests, and give you the power to specify the payment amount and/or bank reference.

For this integration, you won’t need a website, coding skills or access to developers.


Http web form post

🖥️

This integration method

A normal HTML form with text fields that are posted to Ozow. Your customer is redirected from your website to Ozow’s payment page – from there, they’ll go through the payment process.

Once their payment is successful, Ozow redirects your customer back to your website, as set out by the callback URLs in the form’s post fields. Please note that there are a few optional fields that you can use. Find out more about them by contacting support


Javascript injection

This integration method helps alleviate the need to redirect your customer. All you have to do is add a script file to your website. This will pull one of two simple payment screen types into your website:

📺 iFrame

Through iFrame, you'll have a degree of control over styling the payment screen.

🚧

Compatibility?

It’s worth noting that iFrame is not compatible with all devices.

🎯 Modal

Through Modal, you'll have little control over the UX and styling of the payment screen. However, Modal is compatible with all device types.

Through the JS injection integration method, you'll need a website and a web developer with some knowledge of front-end scripting.

🔒

To make sure the data being posted is secure...

A hash (#) will also need to be dynamically generated on your server, and posted through to Ozow with the form post fields. Generating a hash needs some server-side-scripting and therefore a small backend server is also required.
