Wix Pay Links: Creating and Managing Pay Links in the Wix Owner App

4 min read
Instantly request payments on the go using the Wix Owner app. Share pay links via email, social media, SMS, or any of your phone's other native apps. You can also create a QR code for a pay link. Payments made via these links appear in your Wix account like all other transactions through your site.
Before you begin:
  • You need a Business and eCommerce Premium plan to use Pay Links. If your plan expires, your active pay links will be on hold. You'll be able to upgrade your Premium plan through the Owner app if you're using Android. If you're using iOS, upgrade through desktop.
  • In order to accept payments, you must set up a payment method. If you've already set up a payment method for Wix Stores, Wix Bookings or Wix Events, you do not need to set one up again.
